The Kokodo Ebiradze Royal Family of Fijai in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis of the Western Region has cautioned the general public to disregard the self-enstooled chief, Daniel Dadzie as the new Chief of Fijai.
According to the royal family, on Saturday, December 26, 2020, the chief defies the police order cautioning him not to carry out the inauguration exercise and went ahead to enstooled himself as the new Chief of Fijai.
Addressing a News Conference at Kokodo Ebiradze Royal Palace at Fijai on Thursday, December 31, 2020, the stool Secretary, Emmanuel Tweneboah, said, they received the news that the self-enstooled chief had used the name of the late Queenmother of Fijai, Nana Fijaiba and wrote a letter to the Ghana Police Service requesting for their protection during his inauguration ceremony.
The police upon investigation at the Western Regional House of Chiefs was informed that the said inauguration of Daniel Dadzie as the new Chief of Fijai should not be allowed because Fijai has a chief who is duly gazetted at the National House of Chiefs, bearing the name Nana Barima Ekow Gyesa II.
Mr. Tweneboah stressed that the royal family also wrote a letter to the Western Regional Minister, the Western Regional Security Council (REGSEC), the Western Regional Police Commander, and all the security heads in the region to take the necessary steps and stop Daniel Dadzie over his intention to unlawfully enstool himself as the new Chief of Fijai whilst there is already existing Chief who is not destooled.
He said, the current Chief of Fijai, Nana Barima Ekow Gyesa II is also the acting President of the Sekondi Traditional Council and a member of the Western Regional House of Chiefs.
The Stool Secretary, queried the Air Force band on the basis in which they provided band and protection for Daniel Dadzie on December 26 to enstool himself as the new Chief of Fijai after written to them prompting them about such action and its implications to the entire Fijailand.
Mr. Tweneboah cautioned the security agencies not to allow themselves to be influenced to protect individual parochial interests to the detriment of the entire Fijai and the region as a whole.
The Stool Secretary urged the security apparatus and all the appropriate quarters to bring the self-enstooled Chief to order before he plunge the entire Fijailand into another unfortunate situation just like what is happening at Dompim-Pepesa in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem municipality.
He, therefore, advised the general public not to engage Daniel Dadzie in any transaction especially relating to the selling of land.
He also called on the Land Commission to be extra careful particularly on the signatures that would be appended on the documents that will be brought to their office for processing.
