The overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom, Nana Osei Tutu II has felt disrespected by a comment made by Omane Boamah and Julius Deborah of the NDC. The comment was made with regards to the fact that the overlord has “lied”.
This is as a result of these NDC stalwarts belittling the comment of the King concerning the issue that the King persuaded Ex – President John Dramani Mahama to accept defeat after he lost the 2016 general elections before he did. The Ashanti Youth Association (AYA) has organized a press conference this afternoon to give J. D. Mahama 48 hours to come clear as to whether he sent these NDC bigwigs to make the revelation that the King never intervened before J. D. Mahama accepted defeat or otherwise. On Peace FM’s news broadcast today, the AYA further threatened that they would make the Ashanti Region unfriendly to the NDC party if the flag bearer of the NDC does not respond timely.
It could be recalled that a similar incident happened between former Atebubu-Amantin NDC MP, Sanja Nanja and the Atebubu Traditional Council when the MP reportedly insulted the queen mother of the town before the 2016 general elections.
