Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II and Dormaahene, Osaagyefo Oseadeeyo Badu II have clashed over what the latter described as distortion in history.
Osaagyefo Oseadeeyo Badu II is reported to have claimed that Otumfour behaves like God and lording it over the other kings, treating them as his servants.
In response Otumfour Osei Tutu has lashed out to Dormahene, noting that it’s rather a privilege to serve the golden stool.
According to Otumfour, he has not made anybody his subject but it’s an honour to serve golden stool.
He said during the first Council Meeting; “I don’t think you have any impact, those who want to be lifted to a dignified status would be accorded that and helped.
“If you cannot fight for Asanteman, please vacate the seat for those who can. If you cannot sacrifice like our forefathers, then you don’t deserve the seat.
“The reason why the government created the new regions especially, Ahafo and Bono East is to expand development, it doesn’t mean if you are under the Asante Kingdom you have become autonomous, you still serve the Golden Stool (Sikadwa),” Otumfour lashed out.
“Bono East too, anybody trying to raise his or her shoulders must be careful, not under my watch. If you claim you are a man, I am also a man, but I love peace. And with Drobohene my uncle lifted you up in 1948.
“If you say today, no one can make the other a subject, who is making the other a servant here. No one has made the neighbour a servant,” he emphasized.
“I want to remind those who have probably forgotten history and speaking out of ignorance, we haven’t forced anyone to serve us, it is even an honour to serve the Golden Stool. Agyeman Badu was a teacher, he swore before me before ascending the throne as the chief of Dormaa,” Otumfuo said, adding, “It was my orchestration when Dormaa Kusi was defeated.”
Reacting to this, Dormaahene has said that Otumfour has all the time been talking against him at the Manhyia Palace but he’s currently pained after responding to his shades and giving him a dose of his own medicine.
He further noted that he will never disrespect Otumfour but he equally won’t shy away from standing for the truth!
