The Metropolitan (Catholic) Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle has denied being part of a two-day meeting at Peduase aimed at resolving the long-standing Ga Mantse Chieftaincy issues.
In a strongly-worded statement copied to GhanaWeb, the Archbishop indicated that such reports contained in a TV Africa video dubbed “Omanye Aba: Gborbu Wulomo Shitse breaks silence on Ga Mantse Chieftaincy issues” was aired recently by the station.
He stated: “I have been compelled to state categorically that I, Charles G. Palmer-Buckle was never at any such meeting”.
He continued: “I have been involved in trying to find a peaceful solution to the Ga Mantse Chieftaincy issues, and I am still willing and ready to offer my services, if and when needed as a Ga-nyo…to find a lasting solution to the Ga Mantse Chieftaincy issues”.
Archbishop Palmer-Buckle is, however, seeking that records of history be set right and his purported presence at the meeting be corrected immediately for he was “never present at any such meeting.”
