    Yagbonwura disobeys Akufo-Addo’s orders to stand up and greet him – Report

    President Akufo-Addo has once again found himself in a controversy involving the traditional authorities of the country.

    Less than a week ago, President Akufo-Addo received harsh criticism after a video showed the president ordering traditional authorities present at the funeral ceremony of the late Alhaji Rashid Bawa on Saturday, April 20, at Kadjebi in the Oti Region, to rise from their seats and greet him.

    Now, the President, in a video circulating on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, has been found allegedly demanding the same from the Yagbonwura Bi-kunuto Jewu Soale, the Overlord of the Gonja Traditional Area, during a courtesy visit.

    Per the video, President Akufo-Addo gave the order and stool still waiting for the Yagbonwura to get up from his throne to greet him. However, the Yagbonwura did no such thing in the presence of his subjects.

    The issue has not been taken lightly by netizens on social media who believe the president’s posture exudes arrogance.

    “It is high time the arrogance stop,” a user wrote.
