ABANSI

Gbi-Abansi is one of the nine divisions of Gbi Traditional Area. The people of Abansi were part of Gbi-Kpeme, another Gbi divisional town, from which they separated to form a new, independent division. The Abansi division consists of four subdivisions: Tsevi, Daklovi, Asedukluvi and Kitivi. The vast majority of the town's members come from the Tsevi division - the division that produces the head chief and head queen of Abansi. The town is led by Togbe Adzima. Unlike his female counterpart, the head chief's name does not change in succession. Abansi's incumbent chief is Adzima IV.  Mama Adzima Akorlikpo I complements Togbe Adzima IV at the divisional level as queen of Abansi. She succeeded Mama Honu II.  Togbe Dzidoa and Mama Dzidoasi - chief and queen - represent the Asedukluvi subdivisions of Abansi. At the moment, the traditional seats for Daklovi and Kitivi subdivisions of Abansi are vacant.
