This meeting follows a previous discussion between the Ga Mantse and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on October 22, 2021, where they discussed renaming the Greater Accra Region to the Ga-Dangme Region. The Ga King expressed sadness about the situation, stating that his people were not consulted as a traditional authority.

Furthermore, the Ga Mantse appealed to authorities to address the gradual disappearance of the Ga-Dangme language in schools within the region.

“The Ga language has been threatened in recent years. Indeed, many schools do not teach Ga anymore in the Greater Accra Region.

“Today, it is a big threat to our very existence and our culture because we evolve from it. We are asking that teachers that are trained to teach Ga to be posted to our Ga communities,” he said.

He stated that Gas have the ability to decide the outcome of the 2024 general election, thus should be recognised as key stakeholder in the affairs of the country.

“We will decide this election in 2024 because Accra is the pivot of the election. Accra is Ghana and Ghana is Accra, don’t take us for granted,” he stated.
