In his address, the Asantehene expressed gratitude to the Ga State for the warm reception and called for unity among the peoples of the two kingdoms and all chiefs in the country.

"The people of Ga and Asante must unite to develop our peoples. All Ga chiefs must unite behind Nii Teiko Tsuru II. Unity and development must be our focus in the interest of our children," he emphasised.

The Asantehene stressed that the focus of modern chieftaincy should be on development rather than conquering new territories.

"The fight now should be for development in the interest of the future generation," he stated.

Expressing his appreciation for the support he received during his 25th anniversary celebrations, the Asantehene said:

"I appreciate your presence during my 25th anniversary celebration. You showed love. This is a reciprocal gesture."
