Fight For Asanteman Not Through War But Developmental Prowess-Asantehene To APC

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has charged members of the Ashanti Professionals Club (APC) to be innovative as they fight for Asanteman’s betterment.

According to Otumfuo, through the member’s expertise various opportunities will be identified which will bring development and render Asanteman skilled, resourced, and powerful to the world.

“Come together with your knowledge and skills to bring up a job plan that can be sold to the government for employment, this will fetch you income.

“Create something on your own which will be beneficial to the masses, make use of your experience in your various fields, be it accounting, engineering, and public relations, and create something unique so that the rest of the world will see how beneficial you are.

“This is not about war, it’s about expertise”

He said he looks up to the authority in fighting the war because off late such tasks has been left for the King which shouldn’t be so he, therefore, looks up to them in the fight which doesn’t call for war rather skills, knowledge, and action.

“Now even in situations where action is needed we wait and ask Otumfuo before but you can do it, everything has been left for the King.”
“And know that the history of the land matters, it ought not to disappear, history must be studied and Asanteman does not coerce anyone to serve but that does not mean allowing its history to be distorted, I won’t let Asanteman’s history be distorted.”

The charge from Asantehene to the Professionals came in when they visited Otumfuo to present their new members and also to give a briefing on their activities so far.

The new president of APC, Ama Serwah Nerquaye-Tetteh pledged to support the King with their knowledge and wisdom as said.
