The King's Statement:
I am Tufohene (Warlord).
We fought wars for territorial expansion to gain more land and resources for the use by the people. Sometimes we waged wars to control trade routes and gain access to important markets, while other wars were to secure the boundaries of the state. Today, there are no more wars.
I therefore declared war on illiteracy, poverty, disease and unemployment to promote development in my Kingdom and beyond, calling for the needed support in this regard. "I am committed to fighting a different type of war in the 21st century, a war in the form of development."
