The Ashanti Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Chairman Wontumi has refuted claims that he is in bed with the opposition party and that some staunch members on that side are vouching for his re-election.
This comes after a founding member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Alhaji Sani Mohammed called on members of the NPP in the Ashanti Region to maintain Chairman Wontumi, as he is popularly known.
Speaking on Akoma FM in reaction Chairman Wontumi explained that “I am the biggest threat to NDC so they feel that attacking my integrity will make me unpopular so that I lose the election for them to sideline me and have their way in 2024 but it won’t wash”.
He further told host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that, “I am the only regional chairman who has brought the party from opposition and have maintained power, so you can tell that I have experience and good track record. That’s why the NDC is seemingly aligning themselves with me so that my party people will believe I am in bed with the opposition so that I lose the election but some of us we have been in politics for a while and these antics are not new to us”.
