KGL Group has lauded Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for his dedication to the peace and and prosperity in Asanteman and Ghana as a whole.
“As the sixteenth Asantehene, Otumfuo has chalked so many accomplishments and good deeds for Asanteman and the country as a whole,” the Group said in a statement, noting that “his exploits have made his reign truly transformational.”
“Otumfuo started his magnificent reign by tackling and resolving the many chieftaincy and stool disputes that had bedeviled Asanteman prior to his ascension onto the Golden
Stool. Today, chieftaincy and stool disputes have been reduced to the barest minimum in Asanteman,” it added.
The Group referred to the constant rapprochement and advocacy for peaceful elections organised by the Asantehene among all political parties prior to elections every four years.
It added that his engagement with the leaders of the two major political parties before, during and after elections had always been critical in facilitating difficult political transitions.
“Such a transition and the required mastery of wise leadership to ensure the peaceful acceptance of election results were especially pronounced in the aftermath of the vote in the presidential elections of 2016,” it said.
“Also featuring highly in Otumfuo’s exploits towards ensuring peaceful coexistence in our country is his masterful leadership of the Eminent Chiefs’ Committee that achieved ultimate peace for the Dagbon people of Northern Ghana after decades of an otherwise intractable chieftaincy dispute,” it added.
KGL Group further referred to the Otumfuo’s efforts in resolving the crisis that occurred in October 2018 between students and authorities at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, which had led to the destruction of both public and private property worth millions of Ghana cedis.
“It is very much in order to let the living witness society’s acknowledgement of their good deeds so as to spur them on to more and greater accomplishments,” the Group said in the statement.
