Can Asantehene be smarter than God?

Why at all are you asking this question, many a curious Ghanaian will say. It is just that I want to know if indeed Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the “Overlord” of Asanteman, is smarter than God, the Creator of all things seen and unseen.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II may try, and has tried, to be smarter than God but he is not. No creation of God can be smarter than Him. The most beautiful angel, Satan, tried to be smarter but God showed him where he belongs. He cast him out of Heaven and down onto the earth. Satan, consequently, lost all his God-bestowed glory.

If Satan, call him the Devil or the Evil One if you want, who was the most handsome of all the angels and had the sweetest voice, and was powerful, could not be smart enough to take God on in a contest, how can Asantehene, someone with comparatively lesser power be smarter?

Anyway, the public is already aware how the Asante Overlord has been engaging in nefarious ploys contrary to the wishes of God.

God in his own wisdom has anointed specific persons to play specific roles in the life of Ghana to help bring about socio-politico-economic redemption and stability to the suffering Ghanaian masses. However, the Asante Overlord, as smart as he had always been dating from his stay in both Canada and the United Kingdom, prior to becoming the Overlord, has tried to resist God’s plans from coming into fruition.

Did he not allegedly scupper the chances of the intended Chosen One of God from becoming the President of Ghana, to rather usher in his like-minded corrupt, callous and selfish friend as the President of Ghana? Has he by his despicable underhand dealings not brought economic calamity, insecurity and uncertainties upon majority of Ghanaians? Yes he has!

Again, has he not wantonly stuck his yeti foot in the Kumawu chieftaincy affairs, as though he was conventionally authorised to exercise unbridled power over the people, the lands and the resources of Kumawuman? Has he not colluded with Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah, Asanteman Council and some shamefully unethical, corrupt, and scandalously unprofessional judges to impose one Dr Yaw Sarfo, a complete puppet, on Kumawuman as their paramount chief?

As no-one has ever gone to contest with God and prevailed over Him, so shall Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II never be able to defeat God to make Him a liar. What God has purposed for Kumawuman through His anointed servant Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V from the Ananangya royal family shall come to pass despite the audaciously stubborn resistance mounted by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Conniving and condoning with Regional and National House of Chiefs’ registrars to pervert justice by withholding from the public the application forms filled out by Dr Yaw Sarfo subsequent upon which he was accepted and dubiously gazetted as Kumawu paramount chief, will not last. There is an end to everything on earth.

Let me today serve notice on one Alexander Opoku Acheampong from Kumawu but working in Accra at the judicial service that I am aware of his ongoing activities, whether they are legal or otherwise, and will soon be publishing my views about him.

I have the obligation to fight official corruption in Ghana to make the place a bit better, if not much better, for the currently suffering Ghanaian masses. With this as my primary objective, I shall not hesitate a minute to take on any rogue established to be working against the collective interests and aspirations of the Ghanaian masses.

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II can go to any length; he can never be smarter than God. He can arrange with judges to lie on his behalf, he can kneel down before judges and plead with them to bend justice in his favour, he can frequently solicit the assistance of his “yen ntie obiaa” buddy, President John Mahama, and he can still not be smarter than God.

God will in the end defeat him. He will drench him in shame if the constant public castigations and humiliation he has been subjected to are not enough to hurtfully pierce through the tough hippo skin he claims to have developed in his public life hence becoming an “I don’t fear huuuuu - Osuo abrobo3, me tim nie me tim”

I wonder how one can be that insanely corrupt to seek to arrogate to themselves authority that does not belong to them; reaping from where they have not sown, colluding with others to bend justice in their favour knowing very well that such actions of theirs are not only repugnant, but totally illegal and, or criminal.

You can’t be smarter than God so please stop being delusional, oh “Asante Nana”

In my vocabularies, I have not the words or phrases or statements like, “The whirlwind will settle in the end”. Therefore, I shall continue to hammer the evils in perpetration by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and his cohorts until God’s plans for Ghanaians and Kumawuman especially, have come to pass. Therefore, he is admonished to gird up his loins for the looming God’s onslaught on him.
