No Critical Decision Has Been Taken By Gov’ts in the Past 25 years Without Otumfuo- Ursula

The Minister for Communication and Digitalisation, Hon Ursula Owusu has publicly acknowledged the indispensable role Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has played in the economic and social affairs of the country in subsequent governments since his ascension of the Golden Stool.

Having ascended the Stool in 1999, his reign has witnessed different heads of state with different political backgrounds steering the helm of affairs.

These governments started with the Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings and now Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Acknowledging Otumfuo’s impact during the unveiling of Commemorative Stamps in his honour, the Minister stated that the King has had his indelible mark on the fabric of the country.

According to her, all major decisions affecting the country get his input.

“This philatelic masterpiece we are launching here today is more than just a postage instrument. It is a tangible representation of the indelible mark Otumfuo, His Majesty has left on the fabric of our country. His 25-year reign has been a testament to unwaivering commitment to preserving our cultural heritage, promoting education, uplifting the socio-economic wellbeing of our people and I dare say no pivotal decisions has been taken by any of our leaders within this 25 years without his input, given graciously and wisely behind the scenes.”

She was indicative of the fact that the stamps are a humble appreciation for his gracious contribution.

“We are here to celebrate the legacy of an enduring leader whose impact on our nation has been nothing short of remarkable. Today, we pay tribute to your enduring legacy.”

“As we launch this stamp today, we pay tribute to a traditional ruler who has distinguished himself and contributed immensely to the development and progress of his people and country as a whole in several spheres of our lives. I applaud Ghana Post for their vision and dedication in bringing this project into fruition. Through their efforts, we can celebrate the legacy of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II through philately, making history and launching the first ever crypto stamp in Africa as well.”

The Executive Launch and unveiling of the stamps was held at the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Jubilee Hall on May 4, 2024, as part of the 25th Anniversary of His Majesty.

Present at the event on Saturday were the King, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, his wife, Lady Julia Osei Tutu, traditional authorities in the Asante Kingdom, the Ga Mantse, Nii Tackue Teiko Tsuru II, the Minister for Communication and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, Former Chief Justice, Justice Anin Yeboah, the Managing Director of the Ghana Post, Bice Osei Kufour, Representatives of Universal Postal Union and many others.
