Ga Mantse in talks with President to rename Greater Accra after the Ga people

The recently installed Ga Mantse, Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II is urging the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo to change the name of the Greater Accra Region to Ga Adangbe Region. 

This in his view, is going to be symbolic and holds the traditional emblem of the Ga people and would be a good representation of their identity as well as where the city is located.

The Chief made this appeal to the President when he visited him in his palace today as part of his tour in the region. He was of the view that he and his subjects are doing everything in their power to ensure that the language, history, and culture of the Ga people is well known, and taught by teachers who learn the Ga language.

Nana Addo said he is happy seeing a paramount Chief of Greater Accra in his time. Years back, the Ga stool appeared to be in fractions with many people having their own paramount chief and claiming they have the authentic leader and that, all other major towns and their chiefs must give reverence to theirs. 

But, the narrative has changed. Nii Teiko Tsuru II is the recognized leader of the Ga people. 

The Paramount Chief expressed his excitement that he is seeing development in the capital city.
