I’m Above Politics – Asantehene

THE ASANTEHENE, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has said the throne he occupies puts him miles above partisan politics. He said he would continue to contribute his quota to the peace, unity, and growth of the country.

Addressing a durbar during an Akwasidae festival in the United States of America (US) on Wednesday, he said he doesn’t have special preference for any political party in the country, adding that his only interest is to see Ghana become prosperous.

He also promised to continue to act as a father figure for the state as he had done during his two-decade reign on the Golden Stool. He pledged to continue to settle political disputes and protect Ghana’s peace.

“The New Patriotic Party (NPP), the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and all the other political parties in Ghana belong to me and that is an undeniable fact that you are all aware of,” he said.

“I have my grandchildren virtually in all the political parties in the country, including the NPP and the NDC and so they are all my people,” Otumfuo added.

According to him, it is the duty of traditional leaders to use wisdom and dialogue to resolve any misunderstanding and tension between political parties to ensure peace. The Asantehene stated that nothing would compel him to relinquish his special role as a peacemaker for Ghana.
