The people of Ghana

shall soon be participating in another important election exercise to select

members for the Council of State. Each region shall be voting to choose its

representative on this august and important constitutional body.

The Asante

Professionals Club (APC) wishes to throw its weight behind the candidature of Dr.

Anthony Ossei who doubles as the Manwerehene of Asantehene, Otumfuo Nana Osei

Tutu II. Dr. Ossei's stool name is Baffour Ossei Hyeaman Brantuo VI.

We have taken this

decision because in our candid opinion, Nana Manwerehene is the best candidate to

represent the Ashanti Region on the Council of State. We arrived at this after

a careful analysis and scrutiny of the life and person of Nana Manwerehene.

Besides his duties as

a traditional ruler, Nana Manwerehene also serves as the Special Aide to Asantehene.

As Special Aide, he represents Otumfuo at many important events and is part of

essential delegations to places, home and abroad, to conduct developmental

business on behalf of Asanteman.

In his private life,

Nana Manwerehene is a Medical Practitioner. He also serves as the Managing

Editor and Publisher of the New Nation Times Newspaper. He wields a lot of

business acumen serving as the Executive Chairman of the Candela Group of Companies.

Nana Manwerehene is a

staunch Catholic, knighted to the rank of Past Grand Knight (PGK) of the Noble

Order of the 'Knights and Ladies of Marshall, Council 3, in Kumasi.

The Asante

Professionals Club, being a development oriented club with focus on Asanteman,

is proud to have Nana Manwerehene as Otumfuo's chosen representative to serve

as patron and liaison between the Club and Manhyia. Over the past few years, we

at Asante Professionals Club have come to know Nana Manwerehene as someone who


the development and welfare of Asanteman. Otumfuo could not have chosen a

better person to work with us in the attainment of the Club's objectives.

We therefore wish to

encourage the electorates to vote overwhelmingly for Nana Manwerehene as

Asanteman's representative on the Council of State. We have no iota of doubt

that Nana Manwerehene shall continue to prioritize and push the development

agenda of Asanteman when given the opportunity to serve on the Council of
