The chiefs and traditional rulers of Teshie, a suburb of Accra, have cautioned the Greater Accra Region Minister, Henry Quartey, and the Registrar of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, Enoch Addo, to desist from interfering in the chieftaincy matters in Teshie.
The call was made during a press conference organised by the chiefs and traditional rulers of Teshie on Thursday, May 25 in Teshie following an alleged attempt by regional minister and Mr. Addo in collaboration with some members of the Teshie community to constitute another Traditional Council for Teshie.
According to the chiefs and traditional rulers led by the Oblahia Mantse of Teshie Gbugblah, Original Nii Martey Laryea I, there is no recognized Teshie Mantse, hence the move by the Regional Minister and Registrar is illegal.
He said they will resist it.
He further accused Henry Quartey of deliberately trying to destabilize the peace and stability being enjoyed by the people of Teshie and warned that if he does not desist from such actions, it might create unnecessary tension and eventually throw Teshie into chaos.
