The Founder and leader of the Lighthouse Chapel International, Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, has apologised to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, after a sermon he preached in which he criticised the Asantehene and his legacy leaked to the public.
In the controversial audio, which has irked many Ashanti nationals, Bishop Dag was heard saying the Asantehene was “useless” and all he does is sleeping with women.
But in a statement signed by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills on Saturday, June 19, 2021, Bishop Dag Heward-Mills apologised to the Asantehene, explaining that the sermon which was preached almost 20 years ago but had been taken out of context by people who has vowed to bring down his church.
“I am deeply saddened that a message I shared at a conference, nearly 20 years ago, has been taken out of its context and circulated by persons who have previously declared that they will maliciously cause our churches in Kumasi to be closed down.
“I wish to apologize to His Majesty Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II for any disrespect, insult or harm caused him or his royal court. Please accept my profound apologies for the statements I made,” the statement read.
