Accra, Sept. 2, GNA
– Nii Ako Nortei IV of the Osu Ashante quarter has been inducted into the Osu
Traditional Council as the Osu Mankralo after swearing an oath of allegiance to
the Osu Mantse, Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI.
This signified the
smoking of a peace pipe by the traditional leaders after the long standing
Nii Ako Nortei said
his swearing was a demonstration of unity and a new road-map for Osu’s progress
and that the traditional leaders should be sincere in their dealings with each other
in order for peace to reign in the area.
“I call on Nii
Kinka Dowuona today that he shouldn’t hide anything from me; he shouldn’t put
me in darkness and do something that will harm both us. He should not turn his
back to me when I call him in the morning, in the afternoon and in the
evening,” he said.
Nii Ako Nortei
asked the citizens of Osu to put an end to rumour mongering which has the
tendency of breaking families and the society but should rather hold their
hands together to move the community forward in development.
In his response,
Nii Kinka Dowuona said all that the people need is love for one another for
them to live in peace and happiness to propel Osu in its endeavours.
He urged the people
to put the past behind them and go ahead in unity and accord each one the due
respect for the community to regain its reputable position among its peers.
“Any citizen who
looks down upon Nii Ako Nortei by extension has done same to me. We need to embrace each other with love and
humbleness which open doors for success,” Nii Kinka Dowuona said.
