Significance of 1886 in Peki History

The British took over Danish assets and Krepi became part of the British protectorate (Yayo 2002). After careful study of the dynamics of the entire Krepi, the British recognized Pekis influence in the area and decided to make Kwadzo Dei. Paramount Chief of Peki , King of Krepi. In the bid to have Peki to consolidate its stature as an influencial entity and have absolute control over the area , Krepi communities were made to sign an agreement recognizing Kwadzo Dei as the King of Krepi in 1886.
