Kingmakers of Gbese have given the ‘self-acclaimed’ chief of Gbese, Nii Ayi Bonte II, a 7-day ultimatum to renounce his stool or they “advise themselves”.

The chief had earlier this year in the run-up to the elections vowed to destool himself if the NPP’s candidate (now president-elect), was voted as the president of Ghana after December 7.

He told a public function largely attended by members of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) that President Mahama and the NDC government have done enough for the country and hence deserved to win the elections.

But the tables turned on December 7 when Nana Addo polled 5, 716,026 million votes representing 53.85 % to beat the incumbent president John Dramani Mahama who had 4, 713,277 million votes representing 44.40 %.

Many have since begun calling for the head of the Gbese chief, asking him to stand by his words.

At a press conference on Wednesday, December 21, the Kingmakers said Nii Ayi Bonte's comments were against the code of royal ethics for chiefs.

“As Kingmakers we consider his statement as a mounting to an invocation of a traditional oath and going contrary not only to the constitution of the Republic of Ghana but also against the Code of Royal Ethics for Chiefs , which is binding on all who parade themselves as Chiefs,” the Kingmakers said.

They added that the chief’s comments were divisive and have subsequently disrupted traditional affairs of the council.

They have therefore called on him to stand by his words and abdicate his throne.
