Should Asantehene Abdicate ....

Rockson's apparently sound article leads to a logically sound proposition. Either go to court or abdicate.
Otumfuo these days combines contradictory qualities. He is KING of the Ashantis, yet his alleged political bias undermines the wishes of many of his subjects. His meddling in politics , opens the gateway to a more powerful criticism and scrutiny with accompanying unwelcome attacks.
He should have known better. Ashantis have a clear concept of reverence. Their lives, that of their KING and their overall welfare are cosmo-biologically linked with that of the universe; check the origins of the GOLDEN STOOL. Any interference with central government politics is at variance with their customs and traditional values and strictly discouraged, as its pursuance could lead to a diminution of the reverence.
President George Bush Senior once said to Presidential aspirant Dukakis " if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen". Otumfuo should not go to the kitchen. There are top cooks to take care of his meals. If he decides to go to the kitchen, then he must be prepared to absorb the fluctuating kitchen temperatures. His advisers should also take note.
Adofo like many concerned Ghanaians want the rumour mill to grind to a halt. Otumfuo and the Asanteman Council must advisably do the RIGHT thing and take the FREE PRESS to court to clear the slate clean. Bully boy tactics against radio station/s is unacceptable and unhelpful. We cherish the GREAT ASHANTI STOOL.

LONG LIVE OKYEMAN NE ASANTEMAN.
GOD BLESS OUR HOMELAND GHANA.
