Dodowa (GAR), Aug 19, GNA – Some members of
the Greater Accra House of Chiefs have appealed to the Ministry of Chieftaincy
and Traditional Affairs to rescind the transfer of Mr Harry Anthony Attipoe,
Registrar of the House, to the Volta Region.
Paramount Chief of Ningo Traditional Area,
Nene Kanor Attiapa III, speaking on behalf of the chiefs, said it was wrong for
the Ministry to ignore their appeal to maintain Mr Attipoe as Registrar of the
Greater Accra House of Chiefs.

the Greater Accra Region during the induction of Nene Adergon Animile VI,
Osudoku Chief, into the House of Chiefs.
He reminded the Ministry to respect their
plea as according to him, the sector Ministry would not exist without
traditional leaders and chiefs.
According to him, Mr Attipoe has helped
resolved numerous Chieftaincy conflicts in the Region and stated that there was
more work for him to do in the Region.
Nene Attiapa therefore urged the Ministry to
give the registrar another chance to complete his works in the Greater Accra
He however warned that the traditional
leaders were prepared to embark on demonstration and petition the President on
the issue should the Ministry ignore their plea.

of the Kpone Traditional Council, was transferred to the Volta Region by the
Ministry after series of agitation from the youth of Kpone.
Nene Abram Kabu Akuaku III, President of the
Greater Accra House of Chiefs, congratulated the people of Osudoku for
successfully installing a chief without any conflict.
Nene Akuaku advised the people to continue
to give the needed support to the new chief to ensure rapid development in the

acts that would result in chaos and misunderstanding in the area but rather
consult his people on issues.
