The Manhyia Palace, seat of the Asantehene, Otumfou Osei Tutu II has reacted to comments by the head Pastor of the Glorious Wave Church, Prophet Emmanuel Badu-Kobi that women of Asante extraction are greedy.
According to the controversial pastor, women from the Ashanti Region, Central Region and Volta Region are disrespectful, problematic, foolish and doormats.
“If you marry Ashanti lady, you have imported problem to yourself forever. I have done research and it is so,” he claimed. “Ashanti ladies are ungrateful to their husband and I have to say it. They have a proverb translated as ‘Ashantis don’t remember’ and if you marry them and go broke, you will see how they will roast you.” Prophet Badu Kobi said during a recent sermon.
Prophet Badu Kobi after his assertion incurred the wrath of Ghanaians for making such an unfortunate statement.
However, the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi has asked Ghanaians to eschew tribalism from their day-to-day activities.
In a Facebook post on 29t July 2019, he Asantehene’s Palace posted:
Meanwhile, some market women at Kumasi have threatened to drag Prophet Badu-Kobi before the Manhyia Palace for insulting them.
