The Traditional Council of the New Juaben Traditional Area has questioned the attempt to be excluded from the re-structured Eastern Regional House of Chiefs (ERHC).

Omanhene of the area, Daasebre Prof Oti Boateng, in a statement issued on Tuesday noted that it is suspicious how the President of the House is to select various paramount and divisional chiefs but has sidelined his area.

“As one of the Paramount Chiefs of the ERHC, I have decided to speak on this new proposal initiated by the President of ERHC without due consultation in order to preserve the hierarchical structure of the Chieftaincy institution,” he stated.

He, therefore, made a clarion call to stakeholders and citizens to intervene adding that “the country must get united with the truth to prevent any attempts to destroy our time-tested institution of Chieftaincy by preserving the laws governing the institution of Chieftaincy in the country.”
