Statement: Attacks on Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei II, must cease immediately

The New Patriotic Party is disgusted by attempts being made by some persons and media outlets to drag the name of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, into disrepute.

The NPP associates itself with the statement issued by the Manhyia Palace in describing as ‘reprehensible and insulting’ a publication by the New Free Press that made wild claims to the effect that the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II bribed some Supreme Court Justices to influence the outcome of the election petition in favour of President Mahama.

The NPP, as a party, has always respected the Chieftaincy institution and notes with pride the role of Chiefs in upholding and preserving our cultural and traditional values.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu has played a significant role in all spheres of nation building, and his Education Endowment Fund, which awards scholarships and bursaries to needy but brilliant students, is a shining example for all to see.

In addition to this, his role as a mediator in resolving the Dagbon crisis cannot be overlooked.

The NPP is urging all persons who are bent on denigrating the reputation and image of Otumfuo Osei Tutu to desist from these shameful and disgraceful acts.

The NPP further cautions its members not to get involved in such acts. The party is of the firm belief and conviction that Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has never been involved in any of these matters being alleged.
