Chairman Wontumi Trading off Running Mate Position for Personal Gains, Manhyia South NPP Chairman Alleges

"He [Wontumi] is trading the running mate slot. First he did it with Education Minister, Dr Adutwum and when it failed, he shifted to Dr John Kumah until his untimely death."

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Manhyia South Constituency Chairman, Richard Adjei Mensah (Tom Tom) has leveled accusations against the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi for allegedly trading off the presidential running mate slot of the party for his personal gains.

According to Tom Tom, his actions are politically destructive and must be checked before they break the party’s front in their stronghold of Ashanti Region.

Speaking to Kumasi-based Sompa FM and Accra-based Okay FM on Monday, March 11, 2024, the Manhyia South constituency chairman appealed to the national executives of the party to call Chairman Wontumi to order.

Providing details, Tom Tom said since it became open that the running mate will be chosen from the Ashanti Region, Wontumi has allegedly devised a strategy to benefit from the process.

“ He [Wontumi] is trading the running mate slot. First, he did it with Education Minister, Dr Adutwum and when it failed, he shifted to Dr John Kumah until his untimely death, “ Tom Tom stated.

He further indicated that following the unfortunate death of Dr Kumah, Chairman Wontumi has upped his game to destroy any other person he opposes as a possible running mate. “He is doing this using his aides led by a presenter of Wontumi media, Oheneba Nana Asiedu.”

Tom Tom further averred that developments on Wontumi fm/radio in the last few days attest to the machinations of Chairman Wontumi.

“Already, divisions are being created in the region and this must be arrested as early as possible because we cannot toy with our stronghold, “ he said.
