Enstooled as the paramount chief of the Ga State in October, 2017
MOTIVATIONAs a Ga Royal, Nii Tackie Abia has an in-depth knowledge of the rich historical and cultural background of the Ga People, a tribe with a great and beautiful heritage, forged out of the soils of Israel, which knew the real cult of the Nile, served in the courts of the Pharaohs, and learnt about the rule of the Northern Kings.
The Wolomoi, then leaders, with great valor and foresight led us, in search of new land first to, Efe in Nigeria in the south, crossed the Volta river westward unto the hills of Ayawaso. Initiated into Kingship rule by the Akwamus, The Gas began a Dynasty of great line of Kings, conquering all the southern tribes and remained victorious. Descended thehills of Ayawaso down to settle in present day ACCRA, the capital city of Ghana.
This unique tribe has lost its Pride, Unity and Strength. Nii Tackie Abia believes that as the emerging generation of Ga youth and leaders there has to be a collective responsibility to resuscitate the lost values; Pride - Cultural heritage,history, language, Unity - project and enhance our traditional customs, rites and festivals that identify and bind the Gas, Strength- through good education and the acquisition of knowledge in all areas for their social, political and economic progress, and always promote amongst them genuine collective love for one another.
