The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has called on politicians to stop meddling in the affairs of traditional rulers and introducing politics into the system with the attendant polarization.
According to him, politicians must draw the line and stay in their business and allow peace loving Ghanaians to enjoy their peace, no matter their tribe, religion or background.
“We have united as one people over the years. In Asanteman you have people of all tribes here and we are all co-existing peacefully. You will find Fantes, Ewes and Dagombas among others here and we all bond as one people in one Ghana. So please take you politics away and let us have our peace” he said during the recently held Akwasedae during which the Awomefia of the Anlo State, Togbi Sri IV was the special guest of honor.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II continued ‘’the chieftaincy institution had long been inexistence before politics came into being with the concomitant lies, fabrications and propaganda seeking to destroy the hitherto health relations between Asantes and Ewes as well as other tribes and I don’t know where all this is coming from’’ Otumfuo opined.
He described as lies and fabrications, assertions that he invited Togbe Sri to join in the Akwasedae celebration because President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has told him to do so, to enable them resolve matters between the Asantes and Ewes, noting that it is not true.
He urged them to work at uniting the country, burying their differences and ensuring a prosperous Ghana.
