Kojo Bonsu apologises to Asantehene

The Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive, Kojo Bonsu has rendered an apology to the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II and Nananom of the Kumasi Traditional Council over recent developments in the metropolis.

A statement issued by the CEO of KMA, Kojo Bonsu says “I have taken notice of concerns raised by Nananom, and wish to render an unqualified apology to Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II and Nananom for any actions and inactions on my part, which may have incurred their displeasure.”

The Statement which was copied to the Ghanapoliticsonline.com said “since assuming office as the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Kumasi, I have enjoyed tremendous support and cooperation from Nananom.”

Adding that “Together, we have developed a healthy working relationship as stakeholders in the collective pursuit of the development, peace and progress of the Kumasi Metropolis.

“I shall therefore, continue to cherish my relationship with Nananom and take all the necessary traditional steps to repair and protect same.” The statement concluded.

It may be recalled that, the Asanteman Council demanded the immediate removal of the KMA, Boss, Kojo Bonsu.

Mr. Bonsu was reported to have taken a unilateral decision to remove Amoamanhene, Nana Agyenim Boateng from the Kejetia Market project board without informing the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

That action of the KMA Boss did not go down well with Nana Agyenim. He subsequently petitioned the Asanteman Council over the matter.

The Council then summoned Kojo Bonsu over the matter but he failed to appear before the Council.

Below is the full statement
