The visit saw the National Chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin joining Mahama to welcome the Asantehene.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu was in Accra to deliver a lecture at the University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA) on Friday, November 2, 2019.

According to Mahama, he and Otumfuo discussed national issues and he used the opportunity to tap into the Asnahene's counsel.

"It was an opportunity to once again discuss with the Asantehene a number of critical national development issues, and also tap into his wise counsel. Otumfuo Asantehene and I have always had a relationship underlined by mutual respect and brotherliness, and it was indeed a great honour to welcome him and his delegation," Mahama captioned photos of the visit he shared on social media.
