He was not charging me any legal fee until the constitution came to being in 1992. At the time, I was following him wherever he went. I was not a King then, but now I have been installed a King and barred from taking stands in politics. So all I can say is that I want development for my people. If you win let us see the schools, industries, roads, hospitals and the many others, that’s all I want to see for my people as a king,” he said.Otumfuo also told the gathering that the NPP was birthed in the Ashanti region.
