1-11The Okyenhene, His Royal Majesty, Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin, says under no circumstances will he ever fall prey to attempts by his detractors to sow seeds of discord between the Ofori Panin Palace headed by himself and Manhyia Palace headed by the King of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. His relationship with the Otumfuo he noted can never be severed owing to the strong ties between the two chieftaincy institutions.

Reports are rife in the media that Ofori Panin Palace is undergoing massive expansion works with such project aimed at rivaling the status of the Asantehene by building a palace twice the size of Manhyia Palace. The situation, kasapafmonline.com understands, has brought uneasy calm among residents in Kibi living around the Ofori Panin Fie as about 500 houses are said to be demolished to pave way for the expansion project.
But a statement signed by the Secretary to the Office of the Okyenhene, D. M. Ofori-Atta, dated August 8, 2018 and released in Accra said such claims which is allegedly being spearheaded by one Daniel Aboagye of a group called Concerned Citizens of Okyeman, are false.

According to the statement, the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council has no such intentions to expand the Ofori Panin Palace just to rival Manhyia palace, and also denied serving notice of eviction to 500 residents of Kyebi.
