The Communications Director of the governing New Patriotic Party [NPP], Yaw Buaben Asamoah says former President John Dramani Mahama ‘goofed big time’ for publicly responding to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s concession remark. 

"He should have known best how we treat Chiefs in this country with respect, and not exchange words with them in public," he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie'.

To the lawmaker, the overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom is a "Peace Maker" and should be treated as such.

Former President Mahama has come under heavy criticism for denying the Asantehene's involvement in his decision to concede defeat in the 2016 polls.

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II in a bombshell remark said it was through his effort that the former President who was unwilling to accept defeat, conceded.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, who was speaking at the United Nations General Assembly, said: "at the conclusion of the last presidential and parliamentary elections, the country stood on the edge of disaster. The United Nations representative and the diplomatic community were aghast and alarmed that Ghana was about to slip down the slope of the electoral violence. Fortunately, the moral authority of the palace was at hand. We were able to intervene to persuade the losing candidate to accept his fate and to fly both candidates for a quiet encounter to pave way for a smooth handover."
