Asantehene 25th Anniversary Countdown Begins!

The countdown to the 25th Anniversary celebration of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has begun with 15 days left to set the ball rolling following the successful commemoration of the 150th Sagrenti War anniversary.

The Silver Jubilee has a plethora of events slated to mark it, beginning in March and culminating in May 2024.

It will begin with the commissioning of a multi-purpose auditorium constructed by the King at the Manhyia Palace on March 26, 2024, and the conferment of an Honourary Doctorate Degrees by the University of Cape Coast (UCC) and the University of Ghana, Legon on a yet-to-be-decided date this month.

There will also be a clean-up exercise across Asanteman on March 30, 2024.

In April, Otumfuo will host two separate durbars, the first on April 21 with fetish priests and priestesses and the second on April 24 with ethnic groups domiciled in Asanteman.

Ahead of that, there will be a launching of a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) competition dubbed Otumfuo STEM Festival on April 15, 2024.

Next will be firework activities at seven designated venues including Cultural Centre, Heroes’ Park, Manhyia, Tafo, Jubilee Park, Aboabo Post Office, and Adum on the eve of April 26, which will mark exactly 25 years since Otumfuo ascended the Golden Stool.

On April 26, per schedules released by the Planning Committee of the anniversary, a non-denominational thanksgiving service will take place at the Dwabrem grounds at the Manhyia Palace and there will be an anniversary dinner at the residence of the King in the evening.

There will also be a storied photo and video exhibition showcasing the reign of the King at the yet-to-be-commissioned auditorium at the Manhyia Palace in April.

Another thanksgiving service, a dinner and a choral musical concert will be held on May 6 to mark the 74th birthday of the King.

The service will be held at the St. Cyprian’s Church while the rest of the events will take place at the Manhyia Palace.

From May 7 to May 10, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) will hold a four-day programme in honour of their Chancellor.

The 25th Anniversary will climax on May 12, 2024, with a durbar at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
