Wontumi has done the unthinkable again as he publicly declares support for Bawumia

The Ashanti regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi has publicly declared his support for the Vice President of the Republic Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as flagbearer.

It would be recalled that Chairman Wontumi was lambasted heavily for publicly declaring support for the passed General Secretary, John Boadu who eventually lost the elections.

Many have called on the party executives to remain neutral despite having their favourite candidates. Nonetheless, Chairman Wontumi could not hold his silence again when he met his candidates in Kumasi.

Mr Bernard Antei Boasiako publicly declared that the delegates gave him the chance to continue his work as the regional Chairman to endorse Dr Bawumia. He added that the party belongs to the delegates and therefore he has no option than to agree with them on their choice who is Dr Bawumia.

He stressed that the delegates want Dr Bawumia to be the leader of the party going into the 2024 general elections.

Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako said "the NPP belongs to polling station agents, coordinators and constituency executives; if all these people are saying they want Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to be the 2024 flagbearer of the NPP, then whom am I to say no?”

“The delegates gave me the regional chairmanship position to support Dr Mahamudu Bawumia," he boldly stated.
