The Ga Traditional Council will meet next week to begin discussions of issues related to the way forward for the Ga state after the funeral of the late Ga Mantse, Boni Nii Amugi II.

The chairman of the Public Affairs Committee for the late Ga Mantse’s funeral committee, J.E. Allotey-Pappoe, made this known to the Times yesterday.

Issues expected to be discussed include those related to the choice of a successor to the late chief, which has been dogged by controversy.

Two people, Dr. Joe Blankson and Kelvin Tackie have stated claims to the stool. Dr Joe Blankson was enstooled as Ga Mantse in July 2006 under the stool name Nii Tackie Tawiah II, but his choice has not been accepted by all the stakeholders.

The nomination of Kelvin Tackie was announced last week

Commenting on the state of affairs after the Ga Mantse’s funeral last Saturday, Mr. Allotey-Pappoe said the various committees have begun mopping up their activities.

When the Times visited the Ga Mantse’s palace, where the funeral was held, all was quiet, except for a few people who were seen clearing up.

Some of the canopies used for the occasion as well as the red and black buntings that were used to decorate the place were still there.
