The New Juaben Traditional Council has challenged a petition to the Nationwide Home of Chiefs by the Kontihene of the Conventional Region.
According to the Council, the claim by the Kontihene of alleged anomalies in the checklist of chiefs presented is a lethal misjudgment.
The New Juaben Regular Council explained the Kontihene did not look for clarification from them in advance of proceeding with the petition.
“Kontihene produced the fallacious and vicious assertion in his petition that ‘anomalies have happened in the listing offered to the Countrywide House of Chiefs and its President. This statement is falsely blaming the Standard Council without having any basis whatsoever.
“If he was so absolutely sure that the primary listing submitted by the Common Council contained these anomalies, why did not he generate that record as documentary evidence to justify his wild claim?,” the statement mentioned.
This arrives after the Kontihene of the New Juaben Standard Place named on the National Home of Chiefs (NHC) to accurate some key anomalies and illegitimacy in the Legislative Instrument (L.I) 2409 just before it gets a ‘monster’ in the chieftaincy establishment in Ghana.
Baffour Nyantakyi Tutu Boateng, in the petition, dealt with to the President of the NHC and copied to the Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, President of the Jap Regional Household of Chiefs and the New Juaben Conventional Council, alleged that the checklist of divisional chiefs from the New Juaben Conventional Place as captured in the (Membership of the Regional Home of Chiefs) Instrument 2020 (L.I. 2409) is illegitimate and incorporates non-existing stools, unheard of in the Conventional Region since 1875.
This declare, nonetheless, has been countered by the New Juaben Classic Council which has said that if in truth the Kontihene did his checks, he would have found that the list of Chiefs submitted to the NHC have been real names of the twelve Divisional Chiefs of the place.
“The Omanhene of the area had already penned to the President of the Countrywide Home of Chiefs to amend the LI of the detected problems with the precise inclusion of the names of the twelve Divisional Chiefs initially submitted but inadvertently excluded from the LI.”
“However, Baffour Nyantakyi Tutu Boateng did not act in this regard, as a substitute went about petitioning the President of the National Dwelling of Chiefs with copies to different media platforms without recourse to the Omanhene or the Conventional Council.
“This act violates customary regulation and the hierarchy of the Traditional Council establishment.
“The action taken by the Kontihene constitutes a betrayal of the sacred oath he has sworn to the Paramount Stool and the Traditional Region and calls into sharp concentrate his loyalty and integrity to the Stool,” they said.
The Council also mentioned that Baffuor Nyantakyi Tutu Boateng, was found guilty of some severe customary breaches last calendar year which ended up all recorded in the minutes of the Traditional Council conferences.
In accordance with tradition, he is predicted to look for clemency and restitution but instead, he has resolved to estrange himself from the activities of the New Juaben Traditional Council.
This, they included is a breach of the traditions and customs of the place.
“By producing right to the President of the Countrywide Dwelling of Chiefs with out passing via the Omanhene or the Regular Council, Kontihene has dedicated two important breaches.
“The initial breach is his failure to move the petition by way of his Overlord in accordance with customary regulation and use. The next is by bypassing the Regular Council, the greatest standard management electrical power, which has the lawful mandate of original jurisdiction over all matters and triggers influencing Chieftaincy in the Traditional Location, consequently contravening the Chieftaincy Act of 2008.”
