Celebrating A Pillar Of Peace: Otumfuo Is A Voice Of Reason – Chief of Staff

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is “a voice of reason” for Ghana, the Chief of Staff at the Presidency, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, has stated.

“As a politician, I am very much aware of the sensitive role that he has played to bring peace in our political transitions. When thing got really tough, he brought factions together, brought a voice of reason into matters that could have troubled the country,” she said.

Mrs Osei-Opare said this when a delegation from the E ON 3 Group and its key partners presented the Otumfuo Commemorative Coin to her at the Jubilee House on April 12, 2022.

The delegation was led by the Executive Chairman of E ON 3 Group, Richard Adjei Mensah Ofori-Atta.

Ghana grateful
The Chief of Staff emphasised that Ghana would always be grateful to the Asantehene for the way he led the Committee of Eminent Chiefs to bring peace to Dagbon after many years of a devastating chieftaincy dispute.

According to Mrs Osei-Opare, having previously worked in northern Ghana as the Country Director of Action Aid, she knew how important the Dagbon Kingdom is. That is why it is important to recognise how Otumfuo employed tact and diplomacy, to lead the Committee of Eminent Chiefs in the peace journey. “So we are grateful for the life of Otumfuo and all that he continues to do,” the Chief of Staff stated.

National development
Mrs Osei-Opare noted that Otumfuo Osei Tutu II transcended Ashanti in the sense that he has used his position to support national development and peace building.
