Distoolment and installaton workshop held for Osu chiefs

A day’s workshop on the processes of distoolment and installation of chiefs, has been held for members of the Osu Traditional Council.

It was organized by the Council and attended by kingmakers, the Wulomei, assemblymen and women, the police, teachers, church leaders and youth groups.

Addressing the participants, Mr Henry Anthony Attipoe, the Registrar of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, said the time had come for royal houses to be abreast with the processes of installation and distoolment of chiefs as enshrined in the Chieftaincy Act.

He said this would help reduce the unnecessary chieftaincy litigations which had engaged the time of the House and was affecting the development of the Region.

Mr Attipoe said many of such litigations could also be curbed if kingmakers would stop installing unqualified persons as chiefs and queenmothers.

He appealed to persons entrusted with the power of influence to choose appropriate candidates for enstoolment.

The Registrar urged chiefs to stay away from politics which often creates divisions among themselves.

Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI, Paramount Chief and President of the Osu Traditional Council, expressed gratitude for the education given to the people, which he said would go a long way to sustain the chieftaincy institution.

He called for the regular organization of such programmes to update the chiefs and opinion leaders on the new trends in the chieftaincy institution.

Nii Kinka Dowuona later presented to Mr Attipoe a certificate to honour his good works at the Regional House of Chiefs. GNA
