“We’re yet to install new Chief”- Zikpuitor
King Makers of Agotime Adedome led by Zikpuitor Korshie Tenge has asked the people of the town to remain calm while they make proper arrangement towards the funeral of the late Chief, Nene Tuafo Adela-Tachie III before installing the next chief.
Once upon a time a peaceful community was thrown into a shock after a group of people defied Court orders and installed a chief shortly after the demise of Nene Tuafo Adela-Tachie III.
The natives have outrightly rejected him, so as the chiefs of Agotime Traditional Area.
The matter is currently before the Asogli Traditional Council in Ho, the court set up to settle chieftency issues in the Volta Region. They are yet to set date for the first hearing.
While the people of Agotime Adedome are patiently waiting for the court outcome, they have also received an assurance from the King maker, Zikpuitor Korshie Tenge not to panic over the current happening in the town and that the King Makers are not aware of any installation.
He spoke in the public gathering which was organized by Regent Agbo Jomo, Youth Leader Mr. Butu and Zikpuitor on Sunday morning.
“I want to tell you not to panic, our chief has passed on to the ancestors and we are yet to install a new one. As a King Maker, I’m not aware of any chief installation in our town. I want to assure you that the right procedures are been followed and at the right time we will have a new chief installed”
The Queen Mother of the town Manye Ahiaba, who spoke at the same gathering encouraged settlement of disputes through dialogue rather than calling on the police.
“We have always enjoyed a peaceful community, our grandparents and parents never resorted to the police in settling their disputes. They always call for dialogue among themselves and settle their issues amicably.
But today, our issues are all over the police station which would not help our development as a town”
The Queen Mother also seized the opportunity to preach peace as the only way the town can see development.
“Please lets endeavor to bring back the peace that existed some years back, and that will help us see more and more development”.
