Top Kings are mandated to protect Borteyman lands – Nungua Mantse

The Paramount Chief of Nungua Traditional Area, Oboade Notse King Professor Odaifio Welentsi III, and his elders have stated that they have given Top Kings the mandate to protect its 465 acres of land at Borteyman.

They have, therefore, called on the police and other security agencies to give full support to Mr Benjamin Danso, the General Manager of Top Kings, a real estate company, and his security team to maintain law and other on the land.

Prof. Odaifio Welentsi III in an interview with the Ghanaian Times on Monday said Mr Danso, who is a son of the stool, is the only person authorised to work on the land.

He said the stool had not mandated any other person to allocate lands, and that any person found culpable would be dealt with in accordance with the law.

While reacting to allegations of harassment of residents of Nma Dzorn and Adjiringano, the Paramount Chief of Nungua, who is Vice President of Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, said those makings the allegations needed to be investigated.

Niibi Ofori Quaye, who claimed to be the direct uncle of Prof. Odaifio Welentsi III, alleged last week that Mr Danso was using a decision of the Supreme Court in his (Danso) favour to takeover lands outside his allocation.

But, Prof. Odaifio Welentsi III had distanced himself from the statement made by Niibi Quaye.

He said the paramountcy was yet to allocate lands for residential and developmental projects such as schools (technical and vocational institutions, nursing training institute) and hospitals, adding that as part of efforts to develop the community, he and his elders are planning to provide accommodation for residents who do not have places to sleep.

He also called on indigenes of Nungua and the Ga people to support the cause of preserving the stool lands for development purposes.

The elders of the Nungua Traditional Council who supported the call made by Prof. Odaifio Welentsi III were Nii Botwe Laryea II, Nungua Dzasetse/Kotobabi Mantse, Nii Arku Efritete Nipanka IV, Nungua Seitse/Amanfo Mantse, Nii Kwei Alabi Okasakpi, Laweh Dzasetse, Nii Bortey Okplen Dzalesane, Oblantai Mantse and Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo, Regent of Katamanso.

The others included Nii Bortei Sango, Sango Naa Mantse, Nii Odai Kwei III, Nungua Noyaa Mantse/Kronti, Nii Afotey Srawa II, East Legon Mantse and Nii Afadinsro, Nkpong Mantse.
