Traditional Administration

Traditionally, the main rulers of the entire land mass of the Adentan Municipality are the families of La and Teshie. These are two main paramountcies but they do not own the land. Rather the various families within the paramount areas own the lands. The families are also divided into various clans which collectively own certain portions of the land. The paramount chiefs only preside over the various family lands.


Homowo, which means hooting at hunger, is the main festival in the Municipality as prevails in the entire Ga land. The celebration of this festival in the Municipality is not as grand as in main Ga traditional areas due to its ethnic diversity. Besides this, the various ethnic groups celebrate replicas of their home festivals that are subtle and almost imperceptible.
