The Somé Traditional Council has installed and out-doored seventeen new Chiefs and Queen mothers from the various Divisions and Clans.

The seventeen who successfully went through the various rights of passage according to Somé tradition and culture, swore oaths of allegiance to the Paramount Chief and President of the Somé Traditional Council Torgbiga Adamah III, at a colourful durbar held at the forecourt of the palace of the Makorsor of Somé on October 15, at Agbozume, the traditional capital.

Other Chiefs and Queen mothers who were installed last year have successfully gone through their gazette process and have been officially accepted as members of the Somé Traditional Council and the House of Chiefs.

They were presented with their certificates of gazette at the ceremony to symbolize their new position and status.

• Torgbi Agboka IV

• Torgbi Shiada III

• Torgbi Sokpoli II

• Torgbi Kpeli– Doho III

• Torgbi Agbedorme III

Torgbiga Adamah in an address, called on the newly installed Chiefs and Queen mothers to exhibit exemplary leadership qualities and to be agents of change and peace in their communities.

” You must become agents of change and ensure that there is peace and harmony amongst your subjects at all times – we must as a people, put the past behind us and avoid unnecessary squabbles and rancour that will only divide us and thwart our resolve to see a better and prosperous Somé,” the Paramount Chief empasized.

Torgbiga Adamah indicated that prior to the installation and outdooring event, some aggrieved families broke away from the council due to some misunderstandings on the choice of candidates for the installation exercise, but upon advice and soul searching, those families buried their differences and returned to the fold.

He however advised against such happenings in the future, which he said were not good for the forward march of the area.

The colorful ceremony was characterized by traditional drumming, dancing and a rich display of culture amid the singing of war songs and the firing of musketry.
