Asantehene makes a historic royal visit to Ga Mantsɛ

By Majesty 3 Min Read

This historic meeting between the Ashanti Kingdom and the Ga State took place on June 9, signifying a significant turning point in their relationship.

By encouraging cooperation and cultural exchange, the Asantehene’s visit was intended to strengthen the long-standing links between the two traditional authorities. 

Given that Nii Teiko Tsuru II participated in the Asantehene’s 25th anniversary celebrations in Kumasi a few weeks ago, the visit is reciprocal.

At a press conference held on Thursday, June 6, at the Ga Mantsū Palace, the Planning Committee for the historic visit of the Asantehene, headed by Nii Boi Abbey, declared that this visit represents a significant turning point in the history of the Ashanti and Ga kingdoms. 

The Ashanti King’s first-ever journey to the Ga State marks a critical turning point in the history of the two traditional authorities’ relationship. “The visit will be crowned with a special durbar hosted by King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, the Ga Mantsū,” Nii Boi Abbey said in a statement to the media. 

This visit, which is historic, renews the close bond between the Ga and Ashanti people. It also comes after the Ga Mantsɛ actively took part in the Asantehene’s 25th year of reign celebrations recently.

 He went into further detail about the long-standing exchange of cultural customs, ideas, and practices between the Ga and Ashanti people.

 It’s interesting to note that the centuries-long interactions between the Ga and Ashanti people have resulted in shared themes in inclusiveness, governance, and particular cultural practices, such as family structure, traditional dances, the calendar’s structure, taboos, defence mechanisms, and past interactions with other tribes.

 These parallels demonstrate the close bonds that the Ashanti and Ga have, stemming from their common African ancestry.” A customary meeting known as a durbar, it will serve to both commemorate the relationship between the two kingdoms and advance peace in the run-up to the December elections for the presidency and parliament. 

The durbar of the two gallant royals will also be used to promote peace ahead of the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in December this year,” said Nii Boi Abbey. 

1All Ghanaians are cordially invited by the Planning Committee to attend this momentous occasion in the country’s traditional history. On Sunday, June 9, at 11 a.m., the celebration will be held at the courtyard of the Ga Mantsɫ’s Palace in Kaneshie, Accra.

 In addition to being a symbolic occasion, the Asantehene’s visit to the Ga State is evidence of the Ga and Ashanti peoples’ ongoing affection and regard for one another, as well as their shared dedication to maintaining their culture and maintaining their unity as a country.
