The Overlord of Asanteman, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has asked government to consciously work at ceding some percentages of state and government works to the Ghana Publishing Company Limited (GPCL).

This, the King believes will make the state outfit function more efficiently,  effectively and also churn out better dividends to the state and government. 

Currently, Otumfuo said the GPCL out of its limited resources was doing very well, adding that when given quotas or contracts from state and government agencies it could do well and churn out better profits.

The Asantehene made these comments at the Manhyia Palace on Wednesday when Management and Board Members of the Ghana Publishing Company Ltd visited to inform him about the inauguration of their first office in the Ashanti regional capital of Kumasi.


Explaining the rationale for the courtesy call earlier, David Asante Boateng, Managing Director of GPCL said the entire team at the outfit decided to pay homage to the Asantehene and seek for advice as they plot their vision for the rest of the year.

He also Indictated that as the company grows it was important that it spreads its tentacles so that they could have regional offices at the other 15 regions.

Currently, he noted that the Kumasi office for the Ashanti region was ready and therefore they needed to inform the Asantehene. 

“We’ve been working hard to ensure that our presence is felt across the country and we are officially commissioning our office in Kumasi first week of July and set up later in Western and Oti regions subsequently.  We are also pleased to inform Otumfuo that we are going fully digital where gazette items and other operations could be done by persons who need our services seamlessly on their mobile phones after paying the processing fees”, the MD disclosed.


Mr Sammy Binfoh, Financial Director at the GPCL said the outfit was committed to using modern ways to conduct business.

He said GPCL has invested in technology and was ready to roll out services on its application software platform so that everyone in the country could access same and conduct business on same after paying the required fees to GPCL.


Led by Managing Director David Asante Boateng and Board Chairman Dr. Daniel Owusu Ansah, the GPCL also presented GHC100,000 in support of the Heal Komfo Anokye Project.

They commended Otumfuo for leading the project and asked other state abd government agencies to show their support for same.
