The Ashanti Youth Groups in the Ashanti Region have warned the Founder and Leader of Light House Chapel International, Bishop Dag Heward Mills to retract his comment of defamation against the Asantehene within 48hours.
According to the Groups, failure for the ‘man of God’ to do so will lead to the closure of his churches in the Asanteman enclave afterward.
The caution is a direct response to the Founder and Leader of Light House Chapel International, Bishop Dag Heward Mills, in recent audio played by Kwaku Annan on the Seat show on Net 2 TV where he was allegedly scolding Asantehene, Nana Otumfour Osei Tutu II describing him as failing to help his subject.
The Ashanti Youth Groups in a press statement revealed that “with all honesty, if there is any institution that owns accountability then it is Ghana to Asanteman because our cocoa, gold, bauxite, and many more natural resources have been used to develop other areas and Asante has not seen development.”
They cited various initiatives of the Asantehene which is transforming lives in Ghana like facilitating with present and previous government in the building of infrastructures, Education funds, and many others.
“We wish to remind all non-entities, religious leaders, politicians and everyone that His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s contribution towards the development of Asanteman and Ghana is unmatched,” the statement disclosed.
The Youth groups including Asante Youth Association (AYA), Kumasi Youth Association (KuYA), Asante Zongo Youth Union (AZOYU), Asante Students Union (ASU) and Mponponsuo in the USA at a press conference held Monday at the National House of Chief, brought to the attention to what they say, “an attempt by some non-entities, faceless characters, coward politicians, religious leaders to undermine, malign and cause hatred, etc towards the embodiment and soul of Asanteman, His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for reasons known to them
