His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the overlord of the Asante Kingdom, delivered a keynote address on the topic ‘Traditional Leadership in a Modern Society’ at the St Andrews Africa Summit (SAASUM).
St. Andrew’s University in Scotland hosted the summit, which took place in the United Kingdom.
The event took place on Saturday, September 16, 2023, at the Upper College Hall of the university.
According to the organisers, His Royal Majesty provided insight into the Kingdom of Asante and how the diverse people of Ghana fit into local and national government.
The occupant of the Golden Stool will also be held to a reception after his address.
“This reception is in collaboration with the University, where students and community members will be able to witness a live press conference and obtain the rare opportunity to network and meet with an array of professionals— from the King himself to other varying politicians, University administrators, journalists, business owners, and more,” the organizers of SAASUM noted.
St Andrews Africa Summit (SAASUM) is a student-led initiative that promotes a versatile discussion about Africa, Africans, and African Affairs.
