A couple of weeks ago, the Ga Mantse, Nii Tackie Tawiah II, mounted an attack on President John Evans Atta Mills for allegedly ignoring him and other Ga leaders during the observation of certain state functions.

According to the Ga Mantse, the President was slighting him and other Ga leaders by turning them away from numerous public functions, a state of affairs that he attributed to the bad advisors surrounding the President.

In return, the President’s henchmen have come out to attack the Ga Mantse, saying that he would never be recognized in so far as he remains ungazetted.

We at the Daily Searchlight are of the opinion that in this matter, both sides are behaving in a manner that is less than mature. To begin with, we think that the Ga Mantse behaved in rather poor form by attacking the President in the manner in which he did.

Like the President or not, the selection and use of certain words by the Ga Mantse with regard to the President cannot be acceptable.
We were thought to treat others with better language.

Indeed we believe that the concerns of the Ga Mantse are legitimate, but he risked undermining his mission by employing such unacceptable words. With regards to the President, we believe that indeed he may have poor advisors, because the excuses he is employing to slight the Ga Mantse and other Ga leaders are unclearly unacceptable and untenable.

Before President Atta Mills became President, the Ga Mantse was recognized in his current functions one way or the other, as the Ga Mantse. It was the position of the court that he was the Ga Mantse.
We wonder why the President would then quibble over this matter to behave so atrociously.

We are of the opinion that our President once again is not demonstrating good sense in this matter, and one hopes, going forward, that he would receive better counsel on some of these matters!
