We’ll always Make Asanteman Home to You- Otumfuo to Domiciled Ethnic Groups

The Monarch of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has pledged to keep domiciled groups a part of Asanteman and create the needed environment for their habitation among Asantes.

He observes that these groups offer him the requisite recognition as their leader and grandfather and thereby his assurance that his Kingdom would forever be home to them.

“For the past 25 years, whenever my car gets to Zongo, they stand and pay homage to me. They have never failed at that because they regard me as their grandfather.

“We love them. We are well aware that they ply their trade here and we will do everything to make this place a home to them,” he said while addressing audience at the “Ahoho Da”

He, however, counselled them to be law-abiding.

As part of his Silver Jubilee Celebrations, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II hosted 43 ethnic groups domiciled on his land at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on Wednesday, April 24, 2024.

It was an opportunity for the various groups to exhibit their tradition and culture before the King as well as pay homage to him on the “Ahoho Da”.

It was also an affirmation of the bond and friendship between Asanteman and these groups.

Present at the event were dignitaries including Ogyeahohoo Yaw Gyebi, the President of the National House of Chiefs and Paramount Chief of Sefwi Anhwiaso Traditional Area; Naa Puowele Karbo III, the Vice President of the National House of Chiefs and the Paramount Chief of the Lawra Traditional Area in the Upper West Region; and the Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Stephen Asamoah Boateng.
