“Asantehene’s engagement in the Memphis in May International Festival is due to his immense contribution in education, employment, and peace attainment”, says Mr Richard Ofori Atta, a facilitator for Otumfuo’s visit to Memphis.
According to him, Asantehene is worthy of his inclusion and beyond as he is capable of finding several other opportunities for Asanteman and Ghana as a whole.
He said “ Memphis in May is saluting Ghana this time around and His Royal Majesty’s intervention in the settlement of the Dagbon dispute which led to his commemorative gold coin initiative together with other contributions proved to the people of Memphis that indeed there could be no better choice of a valued and honored personality other than Otumfuo to represent Ghana.
He added that, his visit will not only highlight the different traditions and cultures of Ghana and Memphis rather it will also attract further developmental opportunities for the country.
