The people of Ga Mashie in the Greater Accra region over the weekend celebrated their annual Homowo in grand style.
The festival which means “hooting at hunger” was characterised by several activities such as the pouring of libation by the traditional authorities and the sprinkling of their traditional food; “Kpokpoi” amidst gunshots, singing and drumming.
The traditional leaders, clothed in red apparels, moved from one home to the other, sprinkling the traditional food and blessing their subjects.
Speaking with West Africa 24.com, the Korle Wulɔmɔ of the Gbese Quarters, Numo Ayitey Cobblah III, called on the Chiefs and people of the Ga Mashie within to put aside their differences and unite.
This he said would put an end to rampant Chieftaincy disputes in the area.
Numo Ayitey Cobblah III, noted that constant Chieftaincy disputes within the GaDangme communities were hindering socio-economic developments in the area, imploring that any Chief who had issue should seek redress at the National House of Chiefs.
The Korle Chief also observed that the Korle lagoon was in a serious deplorable state.
Numo Ayitey Cobblah III therefore called on the government to as a matter of urgency to dredge the Korle lagoon for the people of the area.
