The Omanhene of the New Juaben Traditional Area, Daasebre Professor (Emeritus) Oti Boateng has protested the composition of the re-structured Eastern Regional House of Chiefs (ERHC).
He has subsequently written to the President of the National House of Chiefs about what he terms as a “bizarre attempt to exclude the New Juaben Traditional Area from the re-structured Eastern Regional House of Chiefs (ERHC).”
In the protest letter copied to the Chief Justice, Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, the Chief of Staff at the Office of the President, Attorney General and Nana Somuah Mireku Nyampong III, a member of the Council of State representing the Eastern Region, Daasebre Oti Boateng argued that there was a “capricious determination and selection of Divisional Chiefs, amongst various paramountcies.”
“It has become necessary as one of the Paramount Chiefs of the ERHC to speak on this new proposal initiated by the President of the ERHC without due consultation in order to preserve the hierarchical structure of the Chieftaincy institution.
