Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II in a prayer said “My prayers are with you as the tour the region in the next few days. I pray that everything ends well for you. I thank you for coming. I pray everything goes well. Ghanaians voted twice for you so I hope you finish what you started and end your term on a good note”.
