NAPO commends Ga Mantse’s bridge building efforts among ethnic groups

During a recent visit to the Ga Mantse, His Royal Majesty King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, in Accra, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Ghana’s Minister of Energy, praised traditional authorities for their crucial role in fostering unity and promoting peaceful coexistence among the country’s diverse communities.
Emphasizing that Ghana’s strength and progress are rooted in the harmony among its various ethnic groups, Dr. Prempeh underscored the importance of inclusivity and the positive impact of traditional leadership.
Dr. Prempeh, affectionately known as Napo, made these remarks on June 7, 2024.
His visit to the Ga Mantse followed similar engagements in May 2024 with other notable traditional leaders, including the Omanhene of Sefwi Wiawso, Katakyie Kwasi Bumagama II, and the Awomefia of Anlo State, Togbe Sri III.
The objective of these visits was to reinforce the relationship between the government and traditional authorities, acknowledging their significant contributions to national unity.
Highlighting the historical camaraderie between the Asante and Ga people, Dr. Prempeh referenced a document from July 25, 1946, which recorded a durbar held by King Tackie Tawiah II, the then Ga Mantse, in honor of his grandfather, Otumfuo Sir Agyeman Prempeh II, the Asantehene at the time.
This historical context was used to emphasize the longstanding cordial relations between the two ethnic groups.
The Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, expressed his pleasure at Dr. Prempeh’s visit, reaffirming the importance of unity and peaceful coexistence for development.
He shared his anticipation of an upcoming visit from his “brother,” the Asantehene, which would further solidify the historical ties and mutual affection between their peoples.
Both leaders reiterated the need to guard Ghana’s peace and unity jealously, recognizing that development thrives in a harmonious environment free from divisiveness.
