Ashantis Are Not Part; It Is Your Subjects Who Are Witches And V– Opambour Blasts Okyenhene [Video]



The founder and leader of Ebenezer Miracle Worship Centre, Prophet Ebenezer Adarkwah Yiadom alias Opambour, has reacted to the labelling of critics of President Akufo-Addo as being witches and uncouth by the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II.


According to Opambour, it cannot be said that the chief was addressing the entire nation, especially the people of Ashanti Region, but rather the people of Akyem area which his authority covers.

He therefore called on people who are livid about the Okyenhene’s comments to ignore the statement by the chief.

“Is that the words of comfort we are supposed to give the people expressing their grievances about the president? He has labelled those hooting at the president as witches and senseless people. Does it include his elders and entire subjects?

“Well, those of us in the Ashanti Region are not part. He was referring to the people in his town. He has just realised that they are witches and don’t have sense even though he is their ruler. But for us, we can’t be bothered. So I don’t have anything else to say. We would be bothered if he had said it in the Ashanti Region but since he said it in the Eastern Region [Kyebi] nobody should force it to be about them.”

Amidst rising economic hardship, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his government seem to have fallen out of favour with some Ghanaians.

This was evident during the president’s recent tour of some regions where videos emerged showing residents booing at the president and his convoy as they went by.

The first of such videos emerged from the Ashanti Region with a later one coming from the Eastern Region.

But addressing the president and his delegation when they visited Kyebi, the Okyenhene did not mince words when he described critics of the president as witches and villagers who are uncouth.
