I only work with govts in power – Otumfuo

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has reiterated that he does not meddle in politics but only interested in helping the government in office develop the country.

According to the Asante King, he is neither a member nor an appendage of a particular group of people but interested in the well-being of every Ghanaian and the advancement of the country.

The Asantehene made this known when he addressed a delegation from the Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB) Network who paid a courtesy call on him at his Manhyia Palace on Wednesday.

The visit was to solicit the blessing of the Asante King ahead of the launch of the EIB Elections Hub which will be launched in Kumasi next Friday.

The Asantehene stated that he had served under four different Presidents – Rawlings, Kufuor, Mills, Mahama – and had helped all of them to contribute their quota to the development and stability of the country.

“I work only with the government in power, what I know is that if Ghanaians vote and elect a new leader, he is the one I have to help make Ghana progress. I would privately give him advice on what is good and bad, if he takes it or rejects the advice that is up to him.

“I have seen four different presidents during my reign and I have advised and worked with all of them in the interest of Ghana. Even opposition members come to seek my counsel but we must all know that Ghana is bigger than everybody.

“What we all need is employment, agriculture, health, water, electricity, education and things that will improve our livelihood, that is my priority,” the Asantehene said.
