Minister to House of Chiefs: Help resolve Asantehene-Dormaahene fracas

Chieftaincy Minister, Stephen Asamoah Boateng,  has urgently called upon the National House of Chiefs to intervene in the escalating tensions between Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and Dormaahene Oseadeyo Agyemang Badu II.

The duo have been engaged in a back-and-forth lately with the Dormaahene who chairs the Bono Regional House of Chiefs recently announcing the suspension of the Berekum Traditional Council from its activities.

He cites the injunction that restrained him from attending the final funeral rites of the late chief of Berekum, Daasebre Dr Amankona Diawuo II, paving the way for the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to make a trip to the town to mourn the late chief.

Reacting to the development, Asamoah Boateng appealed to the House to urgently resolve the current impasse, revealing that it adds to the numerous chieftaincy cases currently pending before his outfit.

He expressed concerns that the current impasse between the two revered traditional rulers may affect the peace in the country.

The minister stated, “There are serious issues that if we don’t tackle head-on, could lead to serious troubles… We have managed to resolve 38 chieftaincy cases; however, I must be quick to admit that the pending number of cases numbering about 477, leaves much to be desired.”

He openly admitted that the public impasse between Nananom, especially the Dormaahene and the Asantehene, “is not helping collective efforts and appealed to intensify ongoing dialogue to bring calmness and resolve issues behind closed doors.”
