Tema Traditional Council Inaugurated

kabuThe Tema Traditional Council (TTC) was inaugurated yesterday with a call for hard work and a change in attitudes of its members to achieve the vision of the founding fathers.

A member of the Council of State, Mr. Adzei Anang, who made the call, advised the people to bury their differences and forge ahead in unity to make life more meaningful for the future generation.

The inauguration followed the induction of Nii Adjei Kraku II as Paramount Chief of Tema, in April, by the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs.

Mr Anang appealed to the President of the TTC, Nii Adjei Kraku II, to make the welfare of his people his paramount concern.

“Serve your subjects diligently, heed the advice of your elders and be fair to all concerned so as to win the hearts of all you encounter,” he said.

Mr. Anang also advised Nii Adjei Kraku II to ensure that royalties due Tema from the Lands Commission were put to good use including financing the education of children in the area so that they can grow into responsible citizens.
The Registrar of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, Mr. Harry A. Attipoe, urged the people of Tema to use the occasion to close their ranks.

He advised them to use laid-down procedures in their customs and traditions to resolve their differences and urged them not to engage in media warfare as that could worsen their woes.

Mr. Attipoe urged the media to verify their facts before reporting on chieftaincy issues in order not to blow things out of proportion.

Nii Adjei Kraku II, appealed to all concerned to work together to develop Tema and make it a better place to live and promised to operate an open door policy and deal fairly with all concerned.

The Director in Charge of Chieftaincy Matters at the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs, Mr. Anthony K. Ahiabah, urged the TTC to organise the affairs of the area in peace and unity.

Prof. Ablade Glover, a retired lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology chaired the function.

Those in attendance included Nene Abram Kabu Akuako III, President of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, sub chiefs of Tema and elders of the town. -Godfred Blay Gibbah, Tema
