When did Asante customary law on enstoolment of chiefs change?
By Asante customary law and usage, the Asantehene does not play any role in the nomination, election and installation of a paramount chief. A newly-installed paramount chief is introduced to the Asantehene only as a formality. It is for this reason that one finds it utterly perplexing that His Majesty, the Asantehene, could make such a profound statement - that he is the kingmaker of every stool in Asanteman. The statement has no basis in both statutory and customary law.
