In his book "Akan Priests in America", Nana Yao Opare Dinizulu I, made this salient observation:
"For thousands of years our Gods and Ancestors have spurred the growth of great cultural metropolises. They have revealed many wonderful medicines and established various sciences which are practiced by many people all over the world. In spite of this many of our leaders and many of our people turn to other religions and to religious science to quench their religious thirst. We should instead, pay direct homage to and become astute in our own religious traditions. It is from religious traditions that man is inspired to develop the various political, architectural, and social sciences of his own society."
