The good people of Ghana have been asked to be patient with President Nana Akufo-Addo in these difficult and trying moments of the country to enable him to deliver on his mandate.
He has also been admonished to continue to be tolerant with the criticisms from a section of the citizens in the face of the mounting economic hardship the country is facing.
Nii Ashitey Tetteh, Head of Ngleshie Alata, Okortsoshishi family and Acting Amamole Mantse said these on Sunday when he addressed family members after performing rituals to usher in Homowo celebrations this year.
Nii Ashitey Tetteh pleaded with the government to complete the Jamestown Landing Beach Project quickly to enable the idle youth in the area to get jobs and also give lasting relief to the fishermen, who were toiling daily to make ends meet.
He said drug addiction, unemployment, violence and chieftaincy disputes had been soaring in the Ga State and urged the government to act swiftly to curb them.
He again said there was nothing fetish about Homowo celebrations and performance of the rituals to honour and remember their ancestors.
He said “The tradition should never be abandoned because our ancestors with no formal education were able to regulate norms and principles that enforced law and order in society.”
Family members from Glidzi Anexom and Zowla in Togo were led by Asafoatse Folly Bebe Kangni Mathias, and Madam AkweiAdoteyAkushika while others also from Benin and Nigeria.
One unique feature about the family members from the Diaspora and their Ga Mashie counterparts is that they all speak impeccable Ga and bear similar names as well.
