'My Son Is Not Arrogant, But . . . . ." - Asantehene Defends NAPO’s Haughty Tag

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II says speculations that his son and the running mate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is arrogant will be hard to believe.

He narrated that Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh is well brought up and doubts claims of his sudden behaviour in the political circles.

However, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II advised that NAPO as affectionately called in political circles, should show humility as he joins the flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia ahead in the December 7, general election.

"I have already advised my son privately, but let me publicly say it here. Don't let Dr Bawumia regret choosing you. Be an obedient servant to him for me. Listen to what he will say and do what he asks you to do. People are saying you are disrespectful but that is not how I trained you. I will defend you because that is not how trained you. I know by God's grace you will do what is expected of me. 

“If he [NAPO] misbehaves, report him to him and I will deal with him." The King said during his brief speech at Manhyia to unveil NAPO as Bawumia's running mate.
