"We Will Pay Our Taxes To You" - Read How Kumericans Reacted To Otumfour's Visit To Kumasi Airport

The Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II yesterday decided to pay a visit to the ongoing refurbishment of the Kumasi Airport. Works are currently ongoing at the airport to make it a full international airport.

As part of the King's routine, he decided to pass by the airport from his Manhyia Palace to assess how the work is progressing.

One thing that many Ghanaians and Ashantis complain about is the sorry state of infrastructure in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi as compared to that of Accra. According to them, although Accra is the capital city of Ghana and should be well maintained, Kumasi as the second largest and industrial city in Ghana should not be left behind at all.

Therefore the renovation works on the airport is a step in the right direction. After the visit by the Ashanti King to the airport under construction, Ashantis decided to shower praises and goodwill messages to their revered monarch. Some people even suggested that Otumfour should collect taxes from Ashantis to be used to develop their region.

The following are some of the images from the King's visit to the site.

Now read some of the comments from Kumericans on social media.
