The Overlord of Asante, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II has made a passionate appeal to Chiefs in the country to desist from running to politicians for favors at the least opportunity.
The revered monarch who was addressing Chiefs at the commissioning of the National House of Chiefs admonished the Chiefs to be mindful of the fact that Politics came to meet Chieftaincy.
“We troop to politicians begging them for certain things so we’re divided in the front. You have to be united; you should know the essence of chieftaincy.
“Let them come to you for advice, let them come to you for direction… if we don’t do that and we go for our petty whatever benefits that we want, you’ll sell your heritage to the politician.
Built in 1949 by Otumfuo Sir Osei Agyemang II, the National House of Chief’s edifice was rendered dysfunctional for some time now due to lack of maintenance.
The building was renovated at the cost of GHS3.5 million, which has been reimbursed by the government.
President of the House, Togbe Afede XIV, expressed optimism that the office will help digitise all documents to guide their work.
