The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, said that the throne he occupies put him far beyond guerrilla politics. He said he will continue to pay his quota to peace, unity, and growth of Ghana.

Speaking on Wednesday at a durbar during an Akwasidae festival in the United States of America (US), he said he had no special desire for political parties in the country, adding that his only interest was seeing Ghana develop.

He also promised to continue to play the role of a fatherly state figure, as he has done and continue to do on the Golden Stool rule. He promised to resolve political disputes and protect peace in Ghana at all cost.

“The New Patriotic Party (NPP), the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and all the other political parties in Ghana belong to me and that is an irrefutable fact that you are all aware of,” he said.

“I have my grandchildren virtually in all the political parties in the country, including the NPP and the NDC and so they are all my people,” Otumfuo added.

According to him, it is the responsibility of traditional spearheads to use wisdom and negotiation to resolve misunderstandings and tensions between political parties to secure peace. The Asantehene said no one can force him to give up his special role as a peacemaker for Ghana.
