Asantehene Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II has sent a strong warning to communities and chiefs who sell lands in the region. Encroachers have been advised to stay off or face his wrath.
According to him, there are no family lands in Ashanti Region. No family head can claim that the land belongs to them and therefore has the right to alienate a portion of the university land at all.
Anyone who wants to challenge him can go to court.
He believes that the judges know that the constitution of Ashanti says that there is no family land in Ashanti.
If not for nothing at all, the people must appreciate the foresight of their forefathers in seeing a vision through the lens of science and technology.
“When our fathers gave these vast lands, the university had only 200 students. 70 years on, the university boasts of over 80,000 students”, he added.
