The pressure for the ‘self-acclaimed’ chief of Gbese, Nii Ayi Bonte II, to step down has increased and the kingmakers of the Gbese Traditional Area have added their voice to the call for Nii Ayi Bonte to destool himself.
This call come after Nii Ayi Bonte made a public statement saying that he would abdicate the throne in the incumbent National Democratic Congress lost the 2016 General Elections.
He told a public function largely attended by members of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) that President Mahama and the NDC government have done enough for the country and hence deserved to win the elections.

At a press conference on Wednesday, December 21, the Kingmakers said Nii Ayi Bonte's comments were against the code of royal ethics for chiefs.
“As Kingmakers we consider his statement as a mounting to an invocation of a traditional oath and going contrary not only to the constitution of the Republic of Ghana but also against the Code of Royal Ethics for Chiefs , which is binding on all who parade themselves as Chiefs,” the Kingmakers said.
They added that the chief’s comments were divisive and have subsequently disrupted traditional affairs of the council. They have therefore called on him to stand by his words and abdicate his throne.
