Everyone and Their Worthy Calling

Be it known unto you from today forward, Oh fellow Ghanaians, and especially, my Kumawuman compatriots the world over, that it is appointed unto everyone by God, their worthy calling. Much as it is our individual obligatory responsibilities to exploit our God-endowed unlimited potentials to the best of our capabilities, bending fate to suit us, yet, everyone has a special calling in the greater perfect and harmonious design by God Almighty.

Some people are born with silver spoon in their mouth; others are born to toil to acquire their silver spoon. Some people are born intelligent, others are born to struggle to acquire intelligence, or they are simply born stupid. Some people are born honest; others are born astute manipulators of facts. However the case may be it is all good for the existence of humankind, for the preservation of life on earth and the portrayal of God's wisdom and purpose for man. God has given us our freewill but will hold us accountable for how we use our special or unique abilities to the benefit of humanity, thus, being one another's keeper in a just way.

Could it be that Rockson Adofo has a noble calling to defend the vulnerable, the poor and the destitute in society, especially, the harassed and the most intimidated or the cowed Kumawuman citizens? One wonders his interest and vehemence in resisting the false rewriting of Kumawu history by the current Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, who acting in consonance with some accomplices including Kumawuhemaa and some Asanteman chiefs, has resolutely decided to do the unthinkable with regard to Kumawu chieftaincy dispute and Kumawuman's lands and money.

Rockson even marvels at how he finds time to do that with vigour, unceasingly coming out with facts to support his convincing claims. He attributes all that to what he sees as a special calling upon him by God to redeem the suffering masses from the wicked exploits by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and the myopic, insatiably greedy, and selfish Kumawuhemaa and her equally birds of the same colours flocking together. Fulfilling a special task, a calling so to speak, can at times be onerous but very pleasing.

My fellow Kumawuman citizens the world over, permit me to ask without meaning to demean anyone, what are your individual calling on the broader issue of the ongoing Kumawu stool dispute? You surely all have your special roles to play in this world or in Ghana as may be appointed unto you by God, according as your potential permits. Nonetheless, what are your additional services that can be performed to make Kumawuman, your father or motherland, a place that you can be proud of and call your home?

What pride is it to you when you neglect to come to the aid of your place of birth, or to the assistance of the suffering people of your ancestral place of birth, when they are in dire need of you?

I take pride in helping the needy. I take pride in being one of the champions of truth when perpetration of lies by those in whom we have entrusted our lives and fate is ramifying to the detriment of the welfare of the suffering masses. I have been brought up to share the little that I have with others and to rally behind good courses. It has always been my philosophy to leave the world better than I came to find it hence all the truthful things people see me doing through my daily activities and my publications.

What are you doing, oh fellow Kumawuman citizen, to better not only the lives of other Kumawuman citizens, but also, to uplift the image of Kumawuman by fighting those with intent to spoil Kumawuman through exploitation, daylight robbery and purposeful intimidation as is the objective of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and his cronies or accomplices? Crimson and immense may be my sins before God but fewer are the persons that may have adverse report against me.

Yes, some people may say, I don't want to have anything doing with litigation, thus, what has become the litigious nature of the Kumawu Stool. Others may say the Kumawu Stool dispute is a family affair between the Ankaase and the Ananangya/Odumase royal families subsequently; it has no direct affect on them personally. Why should they get involved, they may say?

Whatever their individual decisions are, I respect them. Each one is entitled to their opinion. As it is said, "opinions are like noses, each person has one". Some noses are ugly while others are beautiful. However, a nose is a nose.

For the information of Kumawuman citizens, Kumawu, the seat of Kumawuman, is in such a deplorable state that we should be ashamed of ourselves, should we intentionally decide not to rescue our place of birth from the maliciously exploitative intentions by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II acting in collusion with Kumawuhemaa and Dr Yaw Sarfo.

Are you happy to be enjoying your oceans of wealth all alone or with only your limited family when a large majority of your Kumawuman compatriots are lingering in abject poverty brought about by the deliberate malice of a few selfish dictatorial traditional leaders or individuals?

Some people understandably by their Christian or other Faith beliefs think it is ungodly to involve themselves in the ongoing Kumawu chieftaincy dispute because of the litigious turn it has taken. To them, they are forbidden by their faith to involve themselves in litigations even if their timely intervention could help resolve the case. To those people, I should think they have erred, for the Bible says in James 4:17 "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin" Do these people not know that the Ananangyas/Odumases are the real royals? Do these people not know that Kumawuhemaa by her greed, selfishness and lack of farsightedness has caused, or has immensely contributed to the dilapidation of, and dearth of infrastructural development in, Kumawuman, especially Kumawu?

I shall recommend that people of such faith do read the Scriptures; James 2:20-22 "20But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? 21Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected;"

This publication is not to indict the wealthy, more knowledgeable and or well-placed Kumawuman citizens worldwide who are intentionally or otherwise watching while some crooks are toying with their ancestral place of birth, but a call to them to get involved in truth to ensure the prevalence of justice. They are duty-bound to rescue Kumawuman from the evil intentions of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Kumawuhemaa, Dr Yaw Sarfo and the colluding Asanteman Council.

I am back again on the Kumawuman chieftaincy dispute in full swing so keep connected. More revelations are on the way. Until success becomes ours as purposed by God, Rockson Adofo, one of the Lord's chosen vessels to inform the world of the true history of Kumawuman paramountcy in prelude to outdooring His chosen Kumawuhene, Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V, will never rest until his good becomes better, and his better best!

Success shall soon be ours. The shameful defeat of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Kumawuhemaa Abena Serwaah Amponsah, Dr Yaw Sarfo, the alleged Kumawuhene going by the stool name Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah and the colluding Asanteman Council is imminent. This is according to the revelation of God.
