Osu for some time now has suffered series of litigation regarding the chieftaincy issues as to who is the rightful occupant of the stool.

However, this chieftaincy strife has been brought to rest and absolute peace is being experienced amongst the people of Osu after the installation of the legitimate and certified person, Michael Okwei Dowuona-Owoo who now bears the stool name Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI.

It has been brought to book and noticed by all and sundry that the installation of Nii Kinka Dowuona as the Osu Mantse? is recognized by the Osu stool ?Gyaase?, the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs and all the legal institutions authorized for such purposes.

He has also been inducted into the Ga Traditional Council and has document to that effect which allows him to perform both statutory and customary functions at important occasions.

It could be recalled that the recognition of Nii Nortey Owuo III, (rival to Nii Kinka Dowuona VI) as the Osu Mantse was withdrawn by the PNDC government thereby impeding him from carrying out statutory duties.

Meanwhile, information this paper has gathered clearly shows that Nii Nortey Owuo III has been destooled and his name has been obliterated from the register of Chiefs.

This indicates that he has no right to act as a chief or perform duties of chiefs? in the name of the Osu stool.

In the true light of the above, many folks and organizations are wrongly pointing fingers and accusing NDC government officials of having hands in the Osu chieftaincy dispute.

In reference to this, The Ghanaian Observer newspaper in its Wednesday 12 September, 2012 edition published a story headlined, ?NDC fingered over Osu chieftaincy dispute? and the Global Eye newspaper also earlier came out with a publication?s caption ?Who is the Osu Mantse?? Both papers bare teeth at government officials accusing them of aggravating the chieftaincy dispute between Nii Nortey Owuo III and Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI.

But the fact is that a rightful occupant has ascended the throne and he is poised for accelerated development, peace and unity. All must collectively worked together behind him to transform the area because Nii Kinka Dowuona reigns as the chief and noting can be about it.

With this explanation one may asked Who is the true chief of Osu? Read and judge. One whose name exists in the register of chiefs or the one whose name has been expunged from the register?
