The chief priest of Antoa Nyamaa shrine has set the records straight on the saga between the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Wontumi, and the Kokosohene, Nana Kwaku Duah.
Reports emerged last week that the shrine said it could not reverse a curse invoked by Chairman Wontumi against the Kokosohene due to conflicting narratives.
But speaking exclusively to Nhyira FM, the chief priest, Nana Asiamah explained it was not the decision of the shrine.
The Asantehene’s linguist, Baffour Kantankrakye, he said requested for the meeting to be rescheduled due to the lack of consensus between the parties on what exactly transpired.
“We at Antoa did not say the curse should not be reversed; neither is it Wontumi or Kokosohene; but it was the request of Kantankrakye because there was no compromise from both parties,” he explained.
According to Nana Asiamah, Chairman Wontumi admitted to making certain comments but never denigrated Manhyia Palace or the chiefs.
However, he Kokosohene insisted on his narrative that Wontumi had disrespected the Asantehene per the words used during their exchange of words which the shrine is not privy to.
Meanwhile, Nana Asiamah has cautioned the two parties to tread cautiously in their stance on the matter.
“We are very ready to overturn the curse but can’t tell what will happen in the future. If they fail to come back. What I know is that you can’t invoke the Antoa deity in a curse and go scot free. Our task is to direct you on what customs demand,” he noted.
