Thousands of youths living in Ayikai Dobloo community in the Ga West municipality of the Greater Accra Region have overwhelming declared their support for Nii Amu Doodo popularly known as Nii Azooto TJ to be installed the new Chief of the area to succeed the late substantive Chief, Nii Ayikai Doblo, who passed on in 2017.
Describing Nii Dodoo as a “unifier, team builder, peacemaker and a good listener, the youth stated that Nii Doodo who was born and bred in Ayikai Doblo community has chieftaincy leadership credentials and also visible, submissive and approval and they believed strongly that when he was installed the Chief of the area, he has what it takes to work to transform the lives of citizens, particularly the youths in the area.
Speaking in an interview with this reporter during his visit to Ayikai Doblo community on Friday June 11, 2021, scores of the youth who had converged on the palace of the Ayikai-Doblo Stool maintained that the achievements chalked by Nii Doodo as the lawful and legal caretaker for Ayikai Doblo stool lands were unprecedented.
According to the youths, they believed that Nii Doodo was good to be installed their next new chief to bring sustainable development to the area.
They stressed that they have endorsed Nii Doodo, a citizen of Ayikai Doblo, to be installed the new Chief because he has done a lot in bringing social and economic initiatives to improve to the lives of the people, particularly the youths in the area.
They mentioned that Nii Doodo has been using his personal monies to pay the school fees of some needy pupils and students, medical bills of some of the youth, orderlies and lactating mothers.
He also bought motor bikes and taxi cabs for the youths to be used for commercial driving business.
They mentioned that the great success of Ayikai-Doblo was accomplished with the able leadership of Nii Doodo.
They stressed that Nii Dodoo has “proven beyond all reasonable doubts” that the Paramount Chief of Akumajen Stool, Nii Ayikai III, together with his elders who have granted a Power of Attorney (PA) to him to represent the Akumajen Stool in all matters relating to land transactions in Ayikai Doblo community under Ga Mashie made the right choice.
However, the youth warned that they will soon stage a massive demonstration if their appeal was not considered to have Nii Doodo installed their new Chief.
“We are aware that our kingmakers and elders had shortlisted three persons including Nii Doodo to be installed as the Chief in the area. So we are using this medium to appeal to the kingmakers and elders, particularly the Principal Kingmaker of Ayikai-Doblo Stool, Nii Kweifio, that if someone else is selected to be installed as their new chief of the area aside from our man, Nii Amu Doodo, we will surely not accept that new person,” they averred.
The youths also noted that Ayikai-Doblo community has benefitted from several developmental projects including schools, hospitals, sporting facilities, water and sanitation, law and security, economic development and roads all through the instrumentality of Nii Dodoo.
According to them, Nii Doodo has demonstrated a very good working relationship with the heads of the seven families, assembly member, market folk(s), persons living with disabilities (PWDs), students, traditional office holders and religious leaders, and that they believed that his installation as the new Chief would bridge the poverty gap in the area.
“Nii Doodo is someone who believes in development, as such, if he is given another chance to continue with his vision, Ayikai-Doblo community would become one of the best in the Greater Accra Region,” they said.
“We are again calling on the kingmakers and elders of the town to ensure that Nii Doodo is installed as the Chief because since he has been granted a power of attorney to take care of the lands in the area. Nii Doodo has distinguished himself as a development-oriented, human-centered individual as well as a great asset to the Ayikai-Doblo community.
