The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has urged its members to immediately cease any comment that will affect the relationship between Manhyia –the seat of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II —and the political party.

Addressing the media Monday, January 22, 2024, Justin Kodua Frimpong stressed the long standing relationship between the NPP and Manhyia Palace, emphasising the need not to get the the affinity broken.

“NPP holds undiluted absolute respect for Otumfuo and Nananom,” Mr Kodua told the press.

He also urged party supporters to refrain from sensitive comments which will affect the party in the long run.

“…New Patriotic Party, our history has been shaped, our history has been formed, our history has been supported by Asanteman and the good people of , and as a party we hold extreme undiluted, absolute respect for Asanteman, particularly, his majesty our king and Nananon. So please, I will use this platform to caution the rank and file of our party to desist from making any commentary, whether through media or  and whatever means of communication, to desist from making any sensitive comments regarding Nananom, particularly his majesty and the party,”  he said.

Misunderstanding between the Ashanti regional Chairman of the ruling party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako and the Manhyia South constituency Organiser, Abouba, escalated on January 3, 2024, after the vetting of the Energy Minister who doubles as the lawmaker for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh.

Wontumi is alleged to have made some comments which did not go well with Manhyia.

A high powered delegation from government and leadership of the party are expected to meet the Asantehene today and plead on Wontumi’s behalf.
