Otumfuo Preaches Unity In London
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has admonished Ghanaians living in the diaspora to always unite and co-exist peacefully to support one another, their families and their country.
He was of the view that Ghanaians, irrespective of their tribal lineage, are one people, and for that reason, need to see themselves as people with a common destiny.
According to him, since in unity lies strength, it behooved on Ghanaians to eschew all forms of backbiting and antagonism, and rather stay united.
The Asantehene recounted the huge roles that Ghanaians in the Diaspora usually play towards the transformation of the economy and the development of the state.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II made the call when he addressed participants of a mammoth Akwasidae festival in London in the United Kingdom (UK) on Sunday.
The 16th occupant of the revered Golden Stool was on a short visit to the UK and celebrated the traditional Akwasidae festival there when it was due.
As usual, the Asantehene was splendidly dressed in rich Kente cloth, with gold ornaments to match, while many of his subjects paid homage to him as he sat in state.
Among the people present were the Ghana High Commissioner to the UK, Papa Owusu Ankomah and Ing. Nana Poku Agyeman, a grand nephew of Otumfuo.
Papa Owusu Ankomah, on his part, highlighted some of the NPP government’s positive policies that have helped to better the lives of the citizenry.
