Okyehene, Asantehene union: 'I'm proud' - Gabby


I'M AN AKYEM FROM AKYEM-ODA,THE AKYEM PEOPLE FROM KOTOKU AND BOSOME TRADITIONAL AREAS HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE AKYEM ABUAKWA MANHENE BEIING REFERED TO AS OKYEHENE! THE HISTORY STARTED FROM ADANSE BEFORE THE GREAT ASANTE KINGDOM WAS GIVEN BIRTH .THE AKYEMS ARE 3 SIBLINGS FROM THE SAME SOURCE LIKE TRIPLETS.WHEN WE BROKE AWAY FROM ADANSE THE ABUAKWAHS WERE THE FIRST TO SETTLE AT THE PRESENT DAY
EASTERN REGION.THE KOTOKUS FIRST SETTLED AT THE PRESENT DAY ASANTE AKYEM.SOME OF THE KOTOKUS SENSING KING OSEI TUTU'S EXPANSIONISM LEFT TO JOIN THE ABUAKWAHS WHO HAD TAKEN THE OWNERSHIP OF ALMOST 60& OF THE PRESENT DAY EASTERN REGION.THE ABUAKWAHS GAVE LANDS TO THE KOTOKUS AND THE BOSOMES TO SETTLE.THE ASANTE KINGDOM CAME ABOUT THROUGH CONQUEST AND THE AKYEMS ARE SIBLINGS AND WE NEVER FIGHT TO DOMINATE ONE ANOTHER.THE ABUAKWAHS GAVE LANDS TO THE RUN AWAY ASANTE JUABENS THUS KOFORIDUA.SOME LANDS WERE ALSO GIVEN TO THE KROBOS BY ABUAKWAH.SO IT IS WORTHY IF THE ABUAKWAH MANHENE IS REFERED TO AS OKYEHENE BECAUSE HE OWNS THE LAND HIS SIBLINGS THUS THE KOTOKUS AND THE BOSOME ARE DWELLING ON.IT WOULD INTEREST NON AKYEMS TO KNOW THAT THE AKYEMS ARE BIND BY THE GREAT ABENA BIRIM RIVER BECAUSE THE RIVER RUNS THROUGH ALL THE THREE AKYEM STATES
THE OKYEHENE AND ASANTEHENE POST WARTIME RELATIONSHIP IS SUPERB.(THEY FOUGHT 99 TIMES MOST OF THEM UNDER THE GREAT QUEENMOTHER NANA DOKUA WHO ALSO DUUBLED AS OKYEHENE).

WHEN NANA PREMPEH WAS EXILED TO THE SEYCHELLES ISLAND THE OKYEHENE AT THAT TIME WAS VERY INSTRUMENTAL FOR HIS RETURN TO THE THEN GOLD COAST. NANA SIR OFORI-ATTA VISITED HIS FRIEND NANA SIR OSEI AGYEMAN PREMPEH AT THE MANHYIA PALACE.
,AND WHEN HE DIED,ASANTEHENE SENT 500 SUBJECTS TO THE OFORI PANIN FIE AT KYEBI TO MOURN WITH THE AKYEM ABUAKWAHS. IT IS ALSO ON RECORD THE LATE OKYEHENE OSAGEFO DR.KUNTUNKUNUKU VISITED OTUMFOUR NANA OPOKU WARE. AT MANHYIA.OTUMFOUR ALSO RETURNED THE VISIT TO KYEBI.
OKYEHENE NANA OWUSU AKYEM TINTIN AT THE REQUEST OF THE AKUAPIMS SENT SOLDIERS FROM AKYEM AKROPONG TO HELP THEM FIGHT THE AKWAMUS.AFTER THIS WAR THE OKYEHENE'S NEPHEW SAFORI WHO LED THE WAR ESTABLISHED AKUAPIM AKROPONG AND BECAME THE OMANHENE OF THE AKUAPIMS.THE GA PEOPLE ALSO SOUGHT THE HELP OF THE AKYEM ABUAKWAH SOLDIERS TO HELP THEM FIGHT THEIR ENEMIES WHO WERE TRYING TO DRIVE THEM FROM THE PRESENT
DAY ACCRA.AFTER THE WAR THE GA PEOPLE REWARDED THE OKYEHENE WITH A PALACE AT ADABRAKA.WHENEVER A GA MANTSE DIES IT'S THE CUSTOMARY OF THE GA PEOPLE TO DESPATCH EMISSARY TO OFORI PANIN FIE AT KYEBI TO INFORM THE OKYEHENE.DR.NKRUMAH EXILED OKYEHENE TO THE ADABRAKA PALACE AND TOOK THE TITLE OSAGYEFO FROM OKYEHENE TO HIMSELF,HENCE OSAGYEFO DR.KWAME NKRUMAH..ONCE AGAIN THE OTHER AKYEM TRIBES DONT HAVE PROBLEM FOR ABUAKWAH MANHENE BEING REFERED TO AS OKYEHENE.
