The chiefs and people of Xikpo in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region have outdoored a new chief after twenty-five (25) years of experiencing a vacant stool. The colourful coronation event also saw the outdooring of three (3) other elders of the Torgbui Exi Stool, including the Agbotadua.

The coronation ceremony saw twenty-six (26) year-old businessman installed and outdoored as the new Chief of Xikpo, Mr. Joseph Adisenu as his Agbotadua, Mr. Godwin Afesie as Zikpuitor as well as Master Dennis Sekle as the Linguist or Okyeame.

The event was attended by hundreds (100s) of citizens and friends of Xikpo from far and near, as well as some dignitaries from the area. The ceremony showcased some of the rich cultural values, traditions, and potentials of Xikpo as the nation marks Ghana Month in March 2024.

According to the Secretary to the Planning Committee, Mr. Freeman Fenuku, the kingmakers undertook and supervised the coronation rites in collaboration with the Royal Stool family.

The absence of a Dufia for Xikpo for the past 25 years retarded the development of the vibrant farming community whose citizens are engaged in vegetable and food crops farming such as okra, tomato, pepper, maize, and cassava.

The new Chief and his leaders would subsequently be presented to the Agave Traditional Council for the appropriate recognitions and courtesies to be accorded and extended to these new crops of traditional leaders.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Left Wing Chief of the Agave State, Torgbui Lavoe Amusu V, stressed the need for the citizens to support the new leadership to develop the community. He also called for peace and unity in the community, saying these are prerequisites for the total development of Xikpo.

Torgbui Lavoe Amusu V cautioned the new Chief against selling lands unlawfully in the community, explaining that the Agave State lands are family properties that the Dufia has no control over. He urged Torgbui Exi IV to ensure peace and unity among his leaders in particular and the subjects in general to realize the development agenda of Xikpo.

Torgbui Exi IV, in his address to the large gathering of citizens and well-wishers, thanked all and sundry who immensely supported his installation, coronation, and outdooring rites, events, and activities.

He pledged his commitment to the overall development of Xikpo and called for cooperation and support towards the realization of the developmental goals of the community and beyond.

He noted that the task ahead was enormous, but with support from his people, victory would not elude them.

Torgbui Exi IV replaced the late Torgbui Exi Akakpo III, known in private life as Chief Superintendent Andrews Awleshie. The official name of the new Dufia of Xikpo, Torgbui Exi IV, before his enthronement, was Mr. Hayford Soku.

As part of the coronation and outdooring rites, there was a general environmental cleaning in the community and a thanksgiving service held on Sunday.
