The leadership of N.O.D Foundation has followed with keen interest the role Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has played towards the growth of culture and traditions in Ghana.The Asantehene has indeed served as one of the greatest beacons of customary advancement in Africa and even in Global circles.
It is in recognition of the above, that the Chief Executive Officer, Nana Otu Darko and the entire Executive Committee of N.O.D Foundation, Organizers of Ghana Chieftaincy Excellence Awards formally use this medium to congratulate his Royal Majesty on his 20th Anniversary celebrations.
The achievements by Otumfuo-led administration are never in doubt especially with regard to the establishment of the Asanteman education fund.The education fund since its inception has churned out several academics who in diverse ways have contributed their respective quota towards societal growth.
Nana, has also been very pivotal in the projection and preservation of Ghanaian culture.Critical instances include but not limited to the magnitude of cultural display exhibited at the burial of Queen mother Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II, Otumfuo’s mother and former Queen mother of Asante,Otumfuo’s recent historic visit to Okyehene, his Royal Majesty Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, the diplomatic mediation role he played together with his Committee of Eminence in bringing lasting peace to the good people of Dagbon.
