Otumfuo Charges Ghanaians to Be Law-Abiding
THE ASANTEHENE, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has tasked the citizenry to always respect and abide by the laws of the country.
This, he strongly argued, would enable the country to develop at a faster rate so that poverty and hardship would be eliminated.
According to the Asante monarch, there is not a single country in the world which had developed with an indiscipline population.
Otumfuo’s statement was delivered on his behalf by the Nsumankwahene, Baffuor Asabre Kogyawoasu, at a public function over the weekend.
He noted that the peace in the country would be protected if the people obey the laws, stressing that obey the law would automatically lead to transformation.
“The country can also be developed when there is total peace in the country, and there can be peace when we respect and obey the laws”.
The Asantehene also entreated Ghanaians, irrespective of their political, religious or ethnic backgrounds, to contribute towards the country’s economic growth since the government of the day cannot singlehandedly develop the country.
Otumfuo further admonished local contractors engaged by the state to always deliver with perfection and stressed that shoddy work has the tendency of drying up the coffers of the state.
The occasion was this year’s Eid-Ul-Fitr prayers held at the Central Mosque in Kumasi.
