The Chief of Agric Nzemaa in Kumasi, Nana Nkansah Boadu Ayeboafo has expressed shock at the kind of international recognition and reverence The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has been accorded by foreign dignitaries since his arrival at the Buckingham Palace.
According to him, he was utterly dumbstruck at the kind of international recognition and reverence foreign dignitaries who took part in the coronation of King Charles III have towards the Asantehene and the people of Ghana as a result of the rich culture and tradition.
Nana Nkansah Boadu, who was part of the Asantehene’s entourage, says Ghana has gained positive international recognition as a result of the presence of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
According to him, foreign dignitaries are inspired with awe by the beauty and value of Ghanaian culture and tradition.
“They are even surprised that as a country we have such rich culture and tradition but we do not celebrate it enough” He noted, stressing that the time has come for Ghanaians to eschew bitterness and rally behind things that bring progress and development.
He further noted “Anyone who does not cherish such beauty and recognition is only exhibited an attitude of a person who is possessed by witchcraft”
Priding himself as a true and happy servant of His Royal Majesty, Nana Nkansah Boadu urged Ghanaians to rather focus on more things that unite us and bring development to the country.
“The Asantehene is always thinking about the interest of the development of the country; he has always used opportunities accorded him not only for his subjects but also for the entire country, why should such a person be hated instead of being celebrated ” He questioned.
