Otumfuo Did Not Invoke Deity
THE CHIEF Priest of the Asantehene, known in traditional parlance as Nsumankwaahene , Baffuor Asabre Kogyawuasu Ababio, has deflated suggestions that the Asante King, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II invoked the highest curse of the land when he broke his silence on the wild
allegations of his involvement in the bribery of some Supreme Court judges in the just ended Presidential election Petition hearing.
The Chief Priest, who is the custodian of all deities under the Asante Stool, explained that the Asante King did not invoke any deity on his accusers, when he reportedly summoned architects of the allegation before God and the Golden Stool.
The Nsumankwahene, however, stopped short of explaining the negative implications of such action, if indeed it happened that the powerful Asante King did invoke the curse, explaining that he is not in the position to give any further details on the matter.
According to history, it will be the first time an Asante King may have invoked such curses and the repercussions, according to spiritual experts, would be damning to those who invented such wicked lies against the Asante King.
The powerful King is reported by yesterday’s edition of THE DAILY GRAPHIC to have taken strong exception to the allegations that he was involved in the bribery of some Supreme Court Judges to rule in favour of the first respondent, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama.
The King, according to the national daily, was filled with emotion whilst addressing the matter during an Asanteman Council meeting and summoned his accusers before God Almighty and the Golden Stool, the powerful emblem of the Asante Kingdom.
The emotionally-filled King, who was making his first official statement on the matter, after it surfaced in public media platforms at the beginning of last month, called on God and the Golden stool to judge between him and his accusers.
However, Nana Nsumankwaahene told a local radio station, Fox FM on Monday that the King’s statement did not amount to a curse but only a call for justice from God and the Golden Stool.
Baffuor Asabre Kogyawuasu Ababio likened the statement to a situation whereby someone who feels offended or who is falsely being accused decides to call upon God to visit justice on his accusers.
The Chief Priest would, however, not discuss the implications of curses on people who may be behind such wicked plot, explaining that once the Asantehene had spoken, there was no need for him to do any further interpretation.
The Asantehene has meanwhile banned any of his subjects or any resident under his jurisprudence from invoking curses as a means of settling discourse.
