Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has encouraged the youth in his domain to harness their strength and redirect it towards endeavors that contribute to the advancement and progress of Asanteman by abstaining from drug abuse.
He emphasized the importance of following in the footsteps of Asantes’ ancestors, who courageously fought to ensure the continuity and prosperity of Asante.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II emphasized that by emulating the noble actions of their forebears, the current generation can uphold the rich legacy of Asanteman and secure a brighter future for themselves and future generations.
“Stop drugs and use your strength for a better course. That was not how Asanteman was built. Our predecessors did it and we can do it too. Strive to retain Asanteman just as Nananom did. Young men and women must emulate our predecessors,” he said.
Otumfuo made this clarion call during the Kuntunkuni Durbar held at the Manhyia Palace on February 8, 2024.
