He also assured him of his support, saying as a traditional leader, he would offer his assistance to President to succeed since the benefit would accrue to all Ghanaians.
The Asantehene said this when President Mahama, who is in the Ashanti Region for the Accounting to the People Tour, called at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi to pay homage and to seek overlord’s blessings.
He reminded the President of the need to continue fulfilling his promise since the people who benefit from the development projects and interventions were the ones to bear testimony of the performance of his administration.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu also lauded the objective of the Accounting to the People Tour which he believes provides the platform for him to explain issues to the citizenry.
