The Ga Traditional Council has dissociated itself from the coalition of Concerned Ga Chiefs who are demanding the removal of Accra Mayor Dr. Alfred Vanderpuije.
In a statement, Acting President of the council, Nii Dodoo Nsaki, condemned the chiefs for attacking the integrity of the Mayor without basis.
The chiefs at a news conference Thursday, called for the removal of Alfred Vanderpuije as Mayor of Accra, citing lack of co-oporation with the Ga people, and corruption allegations as reasons for the call.
But the Ga Traditional Council said the “people who organised the press conference are not members of the Ga Traditional Council” and must be dis-regarded.
The statement also indicated that the Ga Traditional Council did not approve of the use of the council's premises for the conference, and hence the public must not be deceived into thinking that they back the call to remove Alfred Vanderpuije.
"We wish to say that we appreciate and acknowledge the good works of the Mayor of Accra and pledge our full support for him, in his national development agenda for the Accra Metropolis", the statement said.
