Clad in red, the chiefs and some indigenes took turns to sprinkle the food and poured libation at sacred places and homes.

The festival which was celebrated peacefully attracted a large number of Gas and other tribes. Nii Awuley Ahiaku VI, Kwashieman Mantse addressing the gathering appealed to Ghanaians to vote peacefully in the forthcoming election.

“Ghana is for all of us and we have no place to go should there be any trouble,” he said.

Nii Ahiaku called for a united front to accelerate development of the area and asked them to use the celebration to forge ahead in unity by burying their differences in order to seek the development of the area.

The Kwashiweman Mantse urged the youth to guard against social vices and practice virtues that would shape their lives and help them to become responsible adults.

He appealed to the government to employ more Ga teachers in schools so that they could train the Gas to read, write and speak the language fluently.

Nii Ahiaku appealed to the government to pay compensation to the chief for their lands taken over for governmental projects.
