Asanteman Council pleads with the people not to politicise the 25th anniversary of Asantehene.

Political people have been instructed not to use political clothes or symbols. Nana Otuo Siriboe, Chairman of the Planning Committee, said this during the start of Asantehene’s 25th anniversary on the Golden Stool.

We called on everyone to work together to make the anniversary a success.

He urged lawmakers to refrain from politicising the event.

“We know we are in an election year. In as much as we want everyone to join the anniversary celebration, we are cautioning people to desist from wearing political party paraphernalia during the event. We don’t want anyone to take undue advantage to create an unnecessary tension during the event”, he stated.

He also debunked media reports that the Palace will ban funeral activities.

“Funeral rites would not be banned throughout the event” he said.
