His Royal Majesty is also celebrated for calming tension in the build-up to the 2012 General Elections, when he got the presidential candidates for the contesting political parties to meet in Kumasi to commit to peace by signing on to the famous Kumasi Declaration.

Otumfuo is also credited for stepping in to amicably resolve the conflict between Techiman and four towns that owe allegiance to the Golden Stool.

When the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was plunged into crisis in October 2018, Otumfuo was at hand to douse the flames and restore normalcy to the institution.

Within Asanteman, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has ensured that all chieftaincy disputes which disturbed the progress of Asanteman were settled peacefully.

In recognition of his immense accomplishments in peace-building, the President of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly invited him to address the UN General Assembly High Level Forum on Culture of Peace, during the 25th anniversary of the Adoption of the Declaration and Programme of Action on Culture of Peace on September 12, 2019.
