Torgbe Ayim Mordey VI

The Adontenhene of the Peki State and Acting President of the Peki Traditional Area who is also the Dufia of Peki Avetile, Torgbe Ayim Mordey VI has denied reports that the Chiefs of Peki endorsed the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo.

At a durbar of the Chiefs and people of Peki in Avetile as part of the Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah’s campaign tour of the Volta Region, the Acting President of the Traditional Area minced no words in denying the claim, stating that “the visit of the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party it has been carried on Joy FM online that the Chiefs of Peki endorsed NPP. In fact I want to take this opportunity to let people understand that that was never done. The individual involved in this occasion is going to be called and sanctioned for the misconduct. So I want to make you understand that there was no such endorsement by Peki chiefs”.

It would be recalled that there were recent reports in the media during the Volta Regional campaign tour of the opposition leader that the Chiefs of Peki endorsed the NPP. This generated a controversy as to whether the said person who spoke was a legitimate Chief. This statement by the Acting President of the Peki Traditional Area is therefore seen as a step to assert the collective authority of the Traditional Council and to ensure they are not dragged into supporting the NPP on their blind side.

The statement attracted a huge applause from the audience indicating that the earlier said endorsement was not representative of the Peki people’s wish.
