Democratic Rule Best For Ghana - Asantehene


Democratic Rule Best For Ghana - Asantehene

THE ASANTEHENE, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has sanctioned democratic rule as the best system of  governance for Ghana. He has therefore called on the US to help the country further deepen  its infant democratic rule.

He added that if the US assists Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC) to come out with a  credible voters’ register, it would go a long way to make elections in the country more  trustworthy for all stakeholders.

This was contained a press release issued by the Media Relations Manager of Manhyia Palace, G.B. Osei Antwi.

The occasion was the Secretary of the US Navy, Ray Mabus’ visit to the Asantehene at the Manhyia Palace during a cultural visit to Kumasi.

“Ghanaians have accepted that it is good governance that can improve the welfare of the people,” he said, adding “we need the support of the US economically to enable Ghana conduct credible elections.”

He also implored Ghana and the US to deepen their friendship ties in the coming years to help both countries achieve their developmental goals.

The Asantehene enumerated the valuable assistance especially financial aid that the US had given to Ghana in the past, which had helped catapult the country to its current status.

He observed that the infant democratic system in Ghana has brought about numerous advantages for the country, notably in the areas of the economy and peaceful coexistence among the citizenry. Traditional rulers, Otumfuo observed “support the elected government of the day,” citing the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to settle land and chieftaincy disputes as some of the valuable help that chiefs offer to government.

The King emphasized that the key roles being played by traditional rulers have contributed to the peaceful atmosphere presently flourishing in the country which could lead to accelerated growth.

On his part, Mr. Mabus who had learnt about Ashanti history in his own country said he made the historic visit to have a feel of the rich Ashanti culture.

He said his tour at the Manhyia Palace Museum earlier had really confirmed what he had learnt in the past that the people of Ashanti are brave warriors who fought and won many wars.

The Asantehene presented a rich ‘Kente’ cloth which depicts the rich culture of the people of Asanteman to Mr. Mabus to climax the hearty interaction between the two dignitaries.
