The New Juaben Traditional Area in the Eastern Region is in a state of mourning after reports of the death of its paramount chief, Daasebre Professor Emeritus Oti Boateng, hit the township.

The 83-year-old revered traditional ruler, according to the Daily Graphic, died about two weeks ago after a short illness.

“A visit to the palace yesterday showed the place was very quiet, with no activity at all. Although some traditional leaders were sighted within the palace, visitors were, however, not allowed to enter,” the newspaper reported.

Daasebre Oti Boateng acceded the New Juaben Stool in 1992, succeeding his elder brother, the late Daasebre Nana Kwaku Boateng II.


There were plans to launch the celebration of his 30th anniversary on the stool next year.

He was a member of the Yiadom-Hwedie Royal Family of Juaben, Ashanti, and New Juaben. His mother was the queenmother of Juaben in Ashanti.

As a traditional ruler, Daasebre Oti Boateng strengthened the New Juaben Traditional Council as a local institution for the prosperity of the people.

He institutionalized the first traditional festival in post-independence Ghana – the Akwantukese or the Great Migration – which brings into contemporary prominence a missing but critical and major event of Asante history in Ghana.

He was also a former president of the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs.
