The Okyenhene is considered the head of the Asona clan, the largest among the eight clans of the Akans.

The Okyehene Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin has rallied Ghanaians to support President Akufo-Addo’s ‘good’ vision for the country, the Daily Guide has reported.

Speaking to chiefs and the people of Akyem-Kwabeng in the Atiwa West District of the Eastern region, he said Ghanaians need to exercise patience with the three-year old government.

“Since Rome was not built in a day, then you should know Akufo-Addo government cannot fix all protracted problems of Ghana within two years in power,” he said.

The Okyehene who is the President of the Eastern regional House of Chiefs said it will take time for the policies of the Akufo-Addo government to have its full impact on Ghanaians.

Okyehene Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin reign enters its 20th year next month. He was enstooled on October 4, 1999 after the death of his predecessor Osagyefuo Kuntunkununku II. He is the 35th king to ascend the throne.

While he prepares to mark the milestone, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo has an election to win come in 15 months when Ghanaians go to the polls November 2020.

The President’s main rival remains John Mahama who leads the opposition National Democratic Congress.
