The former Fomena Constituency Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Akwasi Nti has threatened he will never be involved in active politics if NPP delegates retain Bernard Antwi Boasiako known popularly as Chairman Wontumi as Ashanti Regional Chairman.
Mr Akwasi Nti who was a PRO for Chairman Wontumi prior to his election has waged a relentless war against the ‘Ashanti Governor’ criticizing him for making the party unpopular in the Region.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Angel Drive Time Show hosted by Ike De Unpredictable and monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr Akwasi Nti stated categorically that, “I will resign from NPP and active politics if delegates vote for Chairman Wontumi to lead the party as Ashanti Regional Chairman”.
According to Mr Akwasi Nti, people in Ashanti Region are gradually losing interest in NPP especially party members because of Chairman Wontumi’s attitude.
“I’m not campaigning for anyone to lead the party as Regional Chairman but Chairman Wontumi doesn’t deserve to lead the party and that’s a fact”
He explained “Ashanti Region NPP needs Chairman who is not selfish and greedy like Wontumi but we need someone who can bring unity, who is not selfish and unity”
“Because of Chairman Wontumi greedy attitude, party supporters are unwilling to sacrifice for the party like how it used to be. They have lost interest” he stressed calling on the rank and file of the party to be vigilant and rise against any self-seeking executive like Wontumi and poodles.
