Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Samuel Kwame Offei has indicated that the late LA Mantse of the LA Traditional Area was a peace-loving man and whose gentleness was greatly admired by the University.
Professor Kwame Offei made these comments when he led a high ranking delegation to the LA Traditional Council to commiserate with the people of LA on the passing of the paramount Chief of LA, Nii Kpobi Tettey Tsuru III.
“He was a very good friend of ours (University of Ghana). He was one person that you can count on to be present at most of our functions. Besides that, we admired his gentleness and also he was very peace loving.”
According to him, Nii Kpobi Tsuru III was a man who had a lot of interest in the development of the youth in the community.
“He had interest to support youth in the community. We realized that anytime that there was the time for admission; Nii will ensure that there was some portion of the admissions for the people of LA and he ensured that those who qualified were admitted and he will call and ensure that, that is done. We admired that very much.”
“We have come to commiserate with you and we hope that on the day that the funeral will be set, we will come and then have that function with you. We hope that he will be resting in the bosom of our Father. May he rest in peace.”
The La Traditional Council announced in February this year that the La Mantse, Nii Kpobi Tettey Tsuru III, had passed on. He was said to have died in January 2019.
Nii Kpobi Tettey Tsuru III celebrated 30 years as the paramount chief of the La Traditional Area somewhere in November 2018 where he called on the government to facilitate the establishment of a factory in the La Dadekotopon Municipality as promised under the 0ne-District-One-Factory project.
He further commended the government for introducing the Free SHS Policy which had enabled children from underprivileged homes access to secondary education and urged all La citizens to take advantage of the policy to help educate their wards to become competent in the country.
