In this vein, Otumfuo remarked that his fervent prayer to God is that he does not forget his humble beginnings and acts with humility and respect in his capacity as king.

"I am in this position because God has willed it; it is not my doing, strength, appearance, or wisdom, but it is because God has willed it.
"The sweeper, the car washer, and others- I treat them as humans just like myself. The only difference is that per arrangement, I have been put in this position, and that is why I am here. That does not mean that I should disrespect others.
'"So I ask the Lord daily that he should not let me forget myself so I would be respectful and humble in my dealing with everyone"

Otumfuo ankasa ong. You can't hate him oo. He is very down to earth but exercises great power when the need be. He respects everyone but when it's time to discipline you, he will. Such a humble man.

@RICHIENIIADDY1 commented:

Amen , I’m a big fan of Nana

@Seaman__10 commented:

Exactly what he's saying is what a Pastor said once and I've loved him since... People don't even respect their workers simply because they get paid, meanwhile you can't do it yourself that's why you hired them. People don't even see their workers as humans. May God forgive us.
