Your post makes my point. We must not allow ourselves the luxury of limiting the value of Okomfo Anokye's dealings with the creator to one post. In so doing we run the risk of becoming unwitting participants in the colonisation of our religions. We have to learn to stop selling ourselves short and begin to beat the drum of self-worth
The presence of Sikadwa Kofi at Manhyia is too much evidence to resign this giant of an African Godman to one post. The evidence that lives in Awukugua must not be allowed to collect historical dust. In fact, our schools and universities MUST study Okomfo Anokye. We MUST build a religion around this Godman whose unique deeds are there for all to see. We cannot assign him just one post on Ghanaweb.
It is ironic that a religion and tourist industry have been built around the Jewish Godman called Jesus while we are only too happy to remove Okomfo Anokye from school curriculum. A close look will reveal that most of the achievements of Jesus had been performed by other Godmen before he was born. Okomfo Anokye's achievements are unique to him and him only.
The Ashanti nation must take the lead in transforming this unique historical figure before the misguided christians who rule Ghana consign Okomfo Anokye to historical wilderness and academic exile.
Long Live Okomfo Anokye and Asanteman!! Long Live Ghana!!!
Agreed, Okomfo Anokye was a fascinating man and he must be studied.
For those who are interested Dr. A.A Antwi wrote a great book on the lives of Okomfo Anokye and Osei Tutu.
The most fascinating thing I learned from Dr. Antwi's book was that Okomfo Anokye worshipped the Creator directly and not through the gods. Although he did create gods, he never served them matter of fact he put other priests in charge of them. I wonder why? Did he do that to fulfill the selfish desires of man?
All in all Okomfo Anokye was a revolutionary, he attempted to turn right side up the environment he was living. Life from the Akan perspective is to fulfill our destiny, Okomfo Anokye created a foundation that would allow us to do so.
