According to the Kingmakers, his name was entered into the National Register of Chiefs on 26/09/2019 and was inducted into office as Member of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs on May 21, 2020.
On August 1, 2019 4 persons namely Nii Ashitei Amarh, Nii Okai Duamro, Daniel Ashitei Amarh and Asafoatse Yenko Yenda in their alleged capacities as Head of Family of Ashitey We, Mankralo of Teshie, Principal Member and Lenshie Dzasetse respectively, filed a Chieftaincy Petition in Suit No. GARHC/P.5/2019 against Gbetsoolo and Nii Ashikwei Kwaobotswe II at the Greater Regional House of Chiefs.

Key Reliefs sought by Respondents:
A declaration that the purported installation of the 1″ Defendant/Respondent was invalid, void and of no effect.
An order enabling the kingmakers of Teshe Stool to complete the installation of Mr. Samuel Ashitey Ahulu.
Application to Strike out Petition
Per Teshie Customary Law affirmed by Judgments of the GARHCS, The Mankralo, Shikitele, Osabu/Ayiku Wulomo and the Teshie Dzasetse are Teshie Kingmakers. Petitioners are not Teshie Kingmakers and therefore not clothed with any capacity to file any petition over matters affecting the Teshie paramount chief.
The instituting an action in the name of the 2nd Petitioner without his knowledge amounts to contempt as an action cannot be founded on an illegality.
Ruling on Application to Strike out by the GARHC
Declaration that the election, nomination and election of is not valid is not tantamount to destoolment.
The addition of 2nd Petitioner as a party to the suit without his consent, who in any case has withdrawn from the matter, could not be proper ground for the petition to be struck out. For the foregoing reasons we dismiss application as having no merit. Matter to take its normal course.
Grounds of Appeal
That the Committee erred in law and the facts by unduly restricting the meaning and scope of “proceedings for the deposition of a Chief” within the meaning of section 40 of the Chieftaincy Act, 2008 (Act 759)
The Committee erred in Law when it held that the fact the present action brought in the name of the 2nd Petitioner/Respondent without his knowledge, consent and/or approval is not fatal to the matter.
Relief sought from the National House of Chiefs
That the Ruling of the Judicial Committee, of Greater Accra Regional house of Chiefs dated 28th October, 2021 be set aside and consequently, the action be dismissed.
Judgment of the National House of Chiefs
