His Royal Majesty is also celebrated for easing tensions in the run-up to the 2012 general election, when he brought presidential candidates from contending political parties together in Kumasi to pledge peace by signing the famous Kumasi Declaration.
Otumfuo is also credited with intervening to amicably resolve the dispute between Techiman and four cities that owe allegiance to the Golden Stool.
When the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was plunged into crisis in October 2018, Otumfuo was on hand to extinguish the flames and restore normalcy to the institution.
Within Asanteman, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II ensured that all chieftaincy disputes that disrupted Asanteman’s progress were settled peacefully.
In recognition of his immense achievements in peacebuilding, the President of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly invited him to address the United Nations General Assembly High Level Forum on Culture of Peace, during the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration and Program of Action on the Culture of Peace on September 12, 2019.
