Venue For The Climax Of Asantehene’s 25th Anniversary Has Now Been Changed

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II

The venue for the climax of the Silver Jubilee of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has been changed from the Baba Yara Sports Stadium to the Manhyia Palace.

The decision to change the venue was announced during the second sitting of the Asanteman Council on March 11, 2024.

The decision was taken after Asantehene had requested the views from Asanteman on the Board of trustees’ views to hold the great durbar at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on May 12, 2024, while reviewing challenges that defied them during the celebration of his 20th Anniversary at similar scene exactly five years ago.

At the time, a few celebrants who filled a section of the stadium had their views blocked, compelling them to flow onto the pitch to catch a glimpse of traditional authorities and events that took place. Meanwhile, the Sagrenti War durbar was successfully held here at the Palace.

The views on all divisions of the council were therefore collected with almost all the divisions suggesting that it be held at the Dwabrem Grounds of the Manhyia Palace where all other events by the Palace have been held in the recent past.

Some divisions were of the view that the Palace was the seat of the Asantehene and therefore visitors would want to familiarize themselves with the Office of the King. Others reviewed the challenges that erupted during the event at the stadium five years ago, and underscored the significance of holding the event at home.

Otumfuo, because of these, asked the Planning Committee to think about the ideas. However, the decision to change it was in a flash taken and announced by Daasebre Otuo Serebuo.

“The voice of the people is the call of God. The event will be held here just as Nananom have recommended”, Daasebre Serebuo said.

Otumfou Osei Tutu II will this year be 25 years on the Golden Stool with an exceptional and distinguished leadership.

A lot of events have been booked to mark the Silver Jubilee including a Thanksgiving service, a series of durbars, firework activities and dinners.
