E ON 3 Group, key partners celebrate silver jubilee of Asantehene on the Golden Stool

The E ON 3 Group said that critical retrospection on Asantehene Osei Tutu II’s 25-year reign will show that the king has attained remarkable success

The E ON 3 Group and its key partners have congratulated the Asantehene, His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, on the occasion of his silver jubilee on the Golden Stool.

In a celebratory message, the E ON 3 Group observed that a critical retrospection on Otumfuo’s 25-year reign will show that the Asante king has attained remarkable success throughout his reign.

“Some of the king’s significant achievements that have shaped his illustrious reign are in the area of peacemaking and peace-building, which cuts across chieftaincy, education and politics,” a statement from the company said. “His Majesty has been an outstanding African mediator and peacemaker who has breathed fresh air into the chieftaincy institution.

“Otumfuo has a strong determination to achieve the goal of a peaceful, conflict-free Asanteman and Ghana, something he has done with his acclaimed Solomonic wisdom.

“We especially recognise his mediation and intervention efforts to resolve crises both within and outside his kingdom, which won him the enviable award of ‘Pillar of Peace’,” the E ON 3 Group statement said.


“Significantly, Otumfuo ably steered the committee of eminent chiefs to restore peace to Dagbon after decades of a chieftaincy conflict that became difficult to resolve. The settlement of the conflict led to the enskinment of the current Ya Naa, Abukari II.

“It was a fitting recognition of the Asantehene that the Bank of Ghana gave authorisation to the E ON 3 Group to issue the 24-carat (99.9%) ‘Otumfuo Commemorative Gold Coin’ to celebrate His Majesty for the significant role he played in restoring peace to the Dagbon,” the statement further said.

The E ON 3 Group further said it proudly recalls what the executive chairman of the KGL Group, Alex Apau Dadey, said at the launch of the Otumfuo Commemorative Gold Coin: “ ‘It is entirely befitting, given the history and the context of Ghana, that today, on 12 December 2021, the 16th Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, here in the grounds of the Palace of Manhyia, in the heart of Asanteman, presents a value-added Commemorative Gold Coin to the world.

“ ‘Hundred of years from today into the future, let these coins being launched today become a collector’s item and an everlasting touchstone marking the remarkable achievement of peacemaking that the onetime 16th Asantehene of the Great Asante Kingdom of Ghana provided his people and, indeed, his country.’

“As E ON 3 Group and key partners celebrate a great king of our time, we are very confident that the peace initiatives that have underpinned his reign in the last 25 years will be pursued with even much more energy for the benefit of the nation.

“We wish Otumfuo good health and long life. Congratulations, His Majesty,” the E On 3 Group statement concluded.
