A staff at the office of the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Krobea Kwabena Asante has schooled the founder and leader of the Lighthouse Chapel International, Bishop Dag Heward Mills on the achievements of the Asantehene, Otumfou Osei Tutu II.
The man of God is trending for uttering comments many have deamed insulting to the reverred King of the Asantes for doing little for his subjects.
“If the Otumfuo or whoever is there is the real king of the people, when he goes we say this is what he did for the Asante people…not that he ate more food, travelled to Europe or had more wives and children.
“That is not the art of being a king…even two-year-olds have birthday parties and every day there is a celebration…one year, 40 days…that is all.”
He also blasted those who often liken the Asantehene to the biblical King Solomon to be very careful because the wealth King Solomon created for his family cannot be compared to that of the Asantehene.
“Do you know what King Solomon built?…Be very careful when your giving such a nickname ot somebody…we are often the most useless types of kings that ever existed,” he said.
Krobea Asante who is least enthused about the comments of Bishop Dag has replied by listing some of the achievements of the Asantehene in a Facebook post sighted by GhanaNewsPage.Com.
Below is his full post:
“Otumfuo is not a ceremonial traditional leader. He is a development-oriented leader. Again, he is not self-centred, he thinks about Ghana and not only Asanteman. He helps other regions when he needs to.
