This shocking conversation has generated a heated debate on the bird social media platform as some Ghanaian Twitter users argue with each other over the power and influence of the Asantehene and the Ghanaian President.

The tweet who started the debate wrote that: “I don’t care who your president is but I respect and honor Otumfour Osei Tutu II the Asantehene my King more than anyone. I will fight n die for my king not de president Long live King Solomon“.

His tweet attracted opposing tweets from tweeps who argue that Asantehene’s power does not go beyond the Ashanti Region and the Asante Kingdom, therefore, the Ghanaian President wields more influence than the traditional ruler.

Asantehene is powerful but rules in his kingdom, thus, part of the country. Meanwhile, the President rules the whole country. The President set rules for the whole country to obey. Asantehene only set rules in his Kingdom. It can only affect an outsider when he/she sets foot there,” another Twitter with the user name @Efua_112 said.
