Otumfuo Has Dignified Chieftaincy Institution- Methodist Presiding Bishop

The Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana, Most Rev Dr Paul Kwabena Boafo, has acknowledged the respect and prestige that now comes with occupying a traditional and chieftaincy role in the country due to the “sterling” reign of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

According to him, His Majesty has dignified the chieftaincy institution by redefining the term in his reign as the 16th Occupant of the Golden Stool.

He stated that the leadership of Otumfuo has bestowed to kingship an aura of attraction from all sectors of the country and the world.

Speaking at the Thanksgiving Service of the King on Friday, April 26, 2024, he stated, “You have dignified the chieftaincy institution and restored respect to it. Now we are changing our narrative around it. Through you we know it revolves around the pursuit for development. Many can testify to this…”

“Through your leadership, we know chieftaincy is not about selling and squandering proceeds from sale of lands and it’s not about intimidating others,” he added as he outlined some achievements of His Majesty.

As part of his 25th enstoolment anniversary, Otumfuo held a non-denominational thanksgiving service at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on Friday.
