The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has categorically stated that he does not belong to any political party and has dared his critics who often link him to one political party or the other to provide proof.
According to the Asantehene, he has no interest in any political party but has a mission to bring development and stability to Asanteman and Ghana.
The Asante King made the comments when he addressed some Ghanaian diplomats at the premiering of a 40-minute video documentary titled ‘the return of Asantehene from Seychelles’ at the Manhyia palace.
“There are times people connote whatever we do with politics but I want to assure you that as Asantehene I don’t care about your politics, I stand in the middle, I don’t care about your politics, I stand for Ghana and Asanteman.
“Whatever it is that I can do that would bring stability, that is what I care about it is…my duty is to make sure that my people have work and development, health delivery, it is the responsibility of government but I will also serve as a catalyst to ensure that we do the best that we can to make Asanteman develop,” the Asantehene said.
Meanwhile, the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, after watching the video apologized to the Asantehene for the pain Asanteman suffered under the British Empire.
