Press Release

Flagstaff House

April 01, 2017



The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has assured the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, of his commitment to ensuring that the rule of law works without fear or favour, and without regard to any partisan, ethnic or religious considerations.

According to President Akufo-Addo, “it will not be under my watch that people will take the law into their own hands, neither will it be under my watch that the laws of our land will not be enforced. That will never happen. The law will work without fear or favour.”

The President made this known on Saturday, April 1, 2017, when he paid a courtesy call on Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, at the Manhyia Palace, at the commencement of his 3-day tour of the Ashanti Region.

President Akufo-Addo’s remarks come in the wake of the “attack” on the Ashanti Regional Security Co-ordinator, George Agyei, by members of the “Delta Force”.

“I know this matter is a source of great worry for you, Otumfuo. Let not your heart be troubled. The incident has occurred, and I assure you that measures have been put in place to forestall the reoccurrence of this issue in Asanteman, and, for that matter, in any part of the country,” he added.

President Akufo-Addo told the gathering his visit to the Ashanti Region was to thank the Asantehene and Asanteman for the massive show of confidence reposed in him and the New Patriotic Party in the 2016 elections.

“The vote I got in Ashanti was unprecedented. I, therefore, came to show appreciation, and to tell Asanteman of the policy initiatives we are putting in place to ensure that we bring relief to the people of this country, and, thereby, return the country onto the path of progress and prosperity,” he added.

He continued, “Amongst others, I told the people that when we win, we would bring Free SHS. The Free SHS policy is on its way coming.”

The President, on Saturday, April 1, 2017, is expected to hold meetings with the leadership of transport unions in the region; visit the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital; visit the Kumasi Central Market; and hold an encounter with the media.
