Akufo-Addo does not support Dormaahene’s ‘attacks’ on Asantehene – Presidency rejects claims

The presidency has urged Ghanaians to dismiss as frivolous and dismiss claims on social media that President Akufo-Addo secretly supports the Dormaahene, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo, Agyeman Badu II, in what many describe as his constant ‘attack’ on the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

“Kindly disregard commentary being made on social media to the effect that the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is “supporting the Dormaahene” to, as it were, “attack the Asantehene”. These are warped figments of some people’s imaginations, and the general public is implored to treat them with the contempt that they deserve” a Friday January 5 post on Arhin’s Facebook wall read.

Eugene Arhin, the Director of Communications at the Presidency, responded to the charges by calling them frivolous, unfounded, and unproven, and urging Ghanaians to reject them.

He insisted that the president had never met with the Dormaahene to teach him how to insult the Asantehene.

It has never occurred before, and it will never happen again, according to him.

“Indeed, on no occasion has President Akufo-Addo held a secret meeting with the Dormaahene to, as it were, prop him up to disrespect the Asantehene. No such thing has happened, and no such thing will ever happen. President Akufo-Addo, as he has done since his assumption of office on 7th January 2020, enjoys fruitful working relations with all Chiefs, and will continue to do so until the end of his mandate in January 2025” the Facebook post further read.

For some time, the Dormaahene has been outspoken about the need to modify key aspects of Ghana’s Chieftaincy Act, notably the use of Asantehene and Paramount Chiefs in the constitution.
