Some argue that it was a disrespectful and inappropriate action, as it went against established protocol and could be seen as a challenge to the authority of the regional minister. Others, however, see it as a bold move that demonstrated Asiedu Nkietia's commitment to the Ashanti people and their traditional values.
Regardless of one's perspective on the visit, it is clear that it has sparked a lively debate about the role of traditional rulers in modern Ghana. Some argue that traditional rulers should have more say in the political decisions of the country, while others believe that they should play a more ceremonial role.
In conclusion, Asiedu Nkietia's visit to the Manhyia Palace without the regional minister has generated a lot of discussion and controversy. While some see it as a breach of protocol, others view it as a sign of dedication to the Ashanti people and their traditions. Regardless of one's perspective, it is important to consider the complexities and tensions that exist between traditional and modern forms of governance in Ghana.
