Nii Ako Nortei IV of the Osu Ashante quarter has been inducted into the Osu Traditional Council as the Osu Mankralo after swearing an oath of allegiance to the Osu Mantse, Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI.

This signified the smoking of a peace pipe by the traditional leaders after the long standing chieftaincy litigations.

Nii Ako Nortei said his swearing was a demonstration of unity and a new road-map for Osu’s progress and that the traditional leaders should be sincere in their dealings with each in order for peace to reign in the area.

“I call on Nii Kinka Dowuona today that he shouldn’t hide anything from me; he shouldn’t put me in darkness and do something that will harm both us. He should not turn his back to me when I call him in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening,” he said.

Nii Ako Nortei asked the citizens of Osu to put an end to rumour mongering which has the tendency of breaking families and the society but should rather hold their hands together to move the community forward in development.

In his response, Nii Kinka Dowuona said all that the people need is love for one another for them to live in peace and happiness to propel Osu in its endeavours.

He urged the people to put behind them the past and go ahead in unity and accord each one the due respect for the community to regain its reputable position among its peers.

“Any citizen who looks down upon Nii Ako Nortei by extension has done same to me.  We need to embrace each other with love and humbleness which open doors for success,” Nii Kinka Dowuona said.
