The Royal visit of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to the palace of the Ga Mantsɛ Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II is currently underway at the forecourt of the Ga Mantsɛ Palace.

Several dignitaries and traditional authorities have gathered for the durbar.

It comes few weeks after the Ga Mantsɛ, Nii Teiko Tsuru II played a pivotal role in the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

The Planning Committee for the royal visit, led by Nii Boi Abbey said in a news conference at the Ga Mantse Palace on Thursday, June 6, that the visit, the first ever by the Ashanti King marks a major milestone in the history of the two kingdoms.

He told the media “The visit will be crowned with a special durbar hosted by King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, the Ga Mantse.


“It is a historic visit and rekindles the strong ties of friendship between the Gas and Ashantis. It also follows the Ga Mantse’s active participation in the Asantehene’s recent celebration of his 25th anniversary on the throne.”

“The Ga and Ashanti people have had extensive interactions, which have led to the exchange of cultural practices, traditions, and ideas.”

He added “Interestingly the interactions between Gas and Ashantis over the centuries have culminated in common themes in the areas of governance, inclusiveness and specific cultural practices including family structure, traditional dances, structure of the calendar year, taboos, defence mechanisms and historical interactions with other tribes.

“These similarities highlight the strong ties between the Asantes and Gas, which are rooted in their shared African heritage.

“The durbar of the two gallant royals will also be used to promote peace ahead of the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in December this year.”

The planning committee leader stated, “The Office of the Ga Mantse, therefore, invites all to witness this great moment in Ghanaian traditional history at the forecourt of the Ga Mants3’s Palace in Kaneshie Accra at 11 am on Sunday, June 9.”
