Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has made history repeat itself in grand style as he rode to Prempeh College in the same vehicle as one of his predecessors did some 70 years ago.
In 1949, Otumfuo Osei Agyemang Prempeh II went to Sofoline in a Rolls Royce when he went to Prempeh College
Back then, Prempeh College was known as Kwadaso Secondary School. He had gone to inaugurate the school which was fresh at that time.
A popular activist on Facebook named Kofi Owusu Brobbey shared the remarkable story on his Facebook handle.
At the 70th anniversary of the school, Otumfou Osei Tutu II graced the occasion and surprised everyone as he used 'the same' car the previous Asantehene used.
Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu Agyeman Prempeh II was the one who rode the Rolls Royce 70 years ago.
After him came Otumfuo Nana Opoku Ware II before the current Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II took over in 1999; the latest to ride in the luxurious car.
The singular act of Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II shows the rich culture of the Asante's and how seriously they regard their history.

Recent news reports have shown that history has had some representations in our present day.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that as Christmas approaches, Christians are celebrating the return of a little wooden relic that was believed to be part of Jesus' manger, 1400 years after it was gifted to the pope in Rome.
Fox News reports that the small-sized cradle was shown to worshipers on Friday, November 29, at the Notre Dame church in Jerusalem during a one-day celebration and prayer.
By Saturday, November 30, the media said it would be sent to its permanent place at the Franciscan Church of St Catherine, very close to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.
Hurray! YEN.com.gh has won the ‘Online News Portal of the Year” award at NCA awards 2019. Click here to view the beautiful photos.
