The king of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has demonstrated his commitment to education by donating GH₵500,000 to the Ga Education Fund
This announcement came during a grand durbar held in his honour by the Ga State, led by the Ga Mantse, Nii Teiko Tsuru II.
The Asantehene expressed his gratitude for the Ga State’s warm hospitality and emphasised the importance of unity among Ghanaians. He called for a united front between the Ga and Ashanti people, as well as cooperation among all chiefs.
Speaking at the durbar through the Asantehene’s interpreter, he stated that he wants to donate an amount of GH₵500,000 to the Ga Education Fund to help in the education of less-privileged Ga children.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Daniel Titus Glover, who was at the durbar, described the historic visit of Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, to the Ga state as a testament to unity and conflict resolution.
Mr. Glover highlighted the importance of friendship in chieftaincy and explained that Otumfuo’s vast experience on the throne and his ability to organise and resolve conflicts make him a valuable mentor for the Ga Mantse, who is relatively new to the throne.
Mr. Glover expressed his admiration for the Asantehene’s gesture, stating that it is a significant honour for the Ga state to receive such a prominent visitor.
He believes that this visit will foster the relationship between the two kingdoms and lead to mutual benefits for both parties.

The visit, which was marked with a special durbar by the Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, aims to strengthen friendship, collaboration, and community development between the two traditional kingdoms.
The visit also follows Ga Mantse’s recent participation in the 25th-anniversary celebration of Otumfuo’s ascension to the throne and his 74th birthday celebration.
