The Tsie We in Teshie, Accra, has installed Nii Odonkor III as the new Chief for the people of Otinshie, a community at East Legon, Accra.
The installation, which is second in succession after the demise of former Chief, Reuben Odonkor II, took place in Otinshie near East Legon, Accra under the authority and guidance of the Chief Priest of the area, Numo Gua, last Monday.
In his remarks after the installation, the chief priest charged the people in area to rally behind their new king to enable him bring development and progress to the community.
According to him, the installation of Nii Odonkor III marks another milestone in the lives of the people ahead of the annual festivity of the Ga State, and thus vowed to resist any attempt(s) by land guards to terrorise residents and natives of Otinshie.
Numo Gua also re-assured the people of his continuous efforts to reclaim every Otinshie land illegally acquired by government and other individuals. He also pledged an open door policy and welcome positive ideas from groups and individuals towards the development of Otinshie.
For his part, the newly installed Chief, Nii Odonkor III, commended the kingmakers of Otinshie for the peaceful manner they went about during the installation despite initial setbacks, and hoped that such cooperation and peace would continue.
He demanded from the people to bury their differences and see themselves as one people with a common destiny.
Nii Odonkor III also appealed to businessmen and women to pool their resources together to assist him to develop and enhance chieftaincy in Otinshie and its surrounding communities.
The occasion was also used to commission a new multi-purpose building, which will serve as an office for Nii Odonkor III and succeeding chiefs.
The Tsie We of Teshie will also use it for administrative work.
