Don’t step in VR – Asogli Council to Freddie Blay

The Asogli Traditional Council in the Volta Region has declared the New Patriotic Party (NPP) National Chairman Mr Freddie Blay is unwanted in the region, especially within the jurisdiction of the Council.



According to the Council made up of over 30 chiefs, Mr. Blay’s failure to apologise to Togbe Afede XIV, President of the Asogli Traditional Council and the National House of Chiefs over alleged unsavoury comments against their overlord triggered their action.

Addressing a news conference on Wednesday, the chiefs said: “Since recognized bodies as indicated above have tried to influence Mr. Freddie Blay’s conscience to do the right thing, by apologizing, yet he is adamant, the ATC vehemently declares the following:

    a) That Mr. Freddie Blay’s cordial working relationship with the Council from now on has summarily become tainted;
    b) That Mr. Freddie Blay’s uncompromising attitude displayed will pave the way to mar his regional, zonal, and grassroot engagements as Chairman of the NPP in the Region.
    C) That Mr. Freddie Blay, should consider himself unwanted in the Region, in particular, the Asogli Traditional Council Area, which will become for him a bitter experience, hereafter.”


Togbe Koku Ayim V, Paramount Chief of Ziavi, who addressed the media described the conduct of Mr Blay as “gross misbehaviour,” and that the Council could not guarantee his safety in the region.

The Council said Mr Blay had “unfairly misjudged, unjustifiably employed misguided statements and intentionally insulted the integrity and personality of Togbe Afede,” though he married from the Traditional Council.

Togbe Ayim said the “insults are indirect attacks on chiefs of Eweland,” particularly when calls by recognised bodies for apology went unheeded.

The Council said it was not aware of any apology by Mr Blay to Togbe Afede and Asogli Chiefs in the media and that no such apology was in their records, saying, his working relationship with the Council had been “tainted”.
