The Stool Father of the Beniana Clan has officially installed Moses Beniana Mensah, a businessman, as the head of the Tei Appiakia Beniana Family.
The Tei Appiakia Beninana Family has roots at Osabunya, Old Ningo Blebo Royal Wem and Dodowa Amanfro Fiakonya.
At a brief ceremony at the Blebo Royal Palace in Old Ningo to officially install Moses Beniana Mensah, Numo John Tetteh Kojo Lakpleku, Stool Father of the Clan, expressed his immense gratitude to the entire family members for unanimously settling on the new family head who, he said, had the wherewithal to steer the affairs and protect the family’s heritage.
Several acres of the Tei Appiakia Beniana Family lands have illegally been sold to individuals and institutions like the Ghana Police Service by faceless persons, “but with you (Moses Beniana Mensah) as the family head, you have our fullest support to go all the length to reclaim what rightfully belongs to the family. You are fearless, and we have confidence in your abilities and resilience,” Numo Lakplaku said.
In his brief remarks, Moses Beniana Mensah said: “I cannot fail you and your confidence in me, and I promise you that I will deliver. At this juncture, I am calling on all the members of the Tei Appiakia Beniana Family to join hands with me to rebuild our family.
“I would want to use this opportunity to inform the family that the court has restrained all the parties in the case of our family land on which the Ghana Police Service has encroached.”
Oko Beniana, an elder of the Tei Appiakia Beniana Family, led Moses Beniana Mensah to the Blebo Royal Wem for the installation.
