Acclaimed man of God and head shepherd of the lighthouse Chapel International, Dag Heward-Mills, has rendered an official apology to the Asantehene, Nana Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
This comes after the man of God was seen in a viral tape attacking and slandering the good name of the monarch of the Asante kingdom. In the video, some of the accusations made by the lighthouse leader were that the Asantehene was spending lavishly on ceremonies and events that were not beneficial to his subjects. He also accused Otumfuo of not undertaking any meaningful developmental projects in his kingdom.
The man of God, Dag Heward-Mills, has called the tape that was played on Net 2 TV on Wednesday, June 16 malicious and out of context. In his defense, he said he preached the sermon in question about 20years ago and he was a little naive then. However, he did not mean to offend the Asantehene Otumfuo. Asantes on various social media are not convinced and are therefore not taking it lying down. They have called out the pastor and have rained a barrage of insults on him and his ministry. Also, some have called the apology ridiculous.
