The National House of Chiefs has officially removed Thomas Okine a.k.a Nii Ayi Bonte, claimant to the Gbese Stool, whose Serial Number on the National Register of Chiefs was No. 550, name from the National Register of Chiefs.
Thomas Okine as he is known in private life, was approved by the house of chiefs on 20th March 2013, as Gbese divisional chief of the people of Ga.
However, his position was contested for years, until a Supreme Court ruling which nullified his position as the legitimate Gbese Mantse, hence the decision by the National House of Chiefs to do justice to the issues on hand.
Information gathered indicates that the National House of Chiefs at its meeting held on July 16th, 2014, took the decision to remove the name of Nii Ayi Bonte II of Gbese from the register of the house.
However, a certified true copy of a search conducted on Nii Ayi Bonte’s status as the Gbese Mantse confirmed that, the National House of Chiefs had truly held a meeting on the said date and took the decision to remove Thomas Okine’s name from the register.
The document signed by A. K. Essien, Acting Registrar at the National House of Chiefs, stated that “this name has been removed,” the document stated.
The document with Reference number: NH/GAR. 1/V. 10/14, indicated that the deletion of his name was by the decision of the full house on 16th July 2014.
