The Chairman of the Ashanti Regional New Patriotic Party wing, Chairman Wontumi has debunked reports that he is forming an alliance with the opposition party, National Democratic Congress, NDC
In an interview on Akoma FM, Chairman Wontumi said that claims some top members of NDC are pushing for him to be re-elected.
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.
He 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 the host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that, “I am the only regional chairman who has brought the party from the opposition and have maintained power, so you can tell that I have experience and a 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”
Madam Jane Opoku Agyemang, the running mate of former president, John Dramani Mahama led a four-member delegation of top members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), to represent him at the funeral service and burial of fallen clergyman, Prophet TB Joshua.
Tears flow at funeral of Prophet TB Joshua at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Ikotun area of Lagos and the ceremony was attended by his church members, some friends in the ministry and the family.
You would recall that John Mahama has paid a touching tribute to the renowned televangelist where he described him as an extraordinary servant of God who was humble and dwelled in the presence of God.
“The late Prophet TB Joshua was an extraordinary servant of God. It is still quite shocking to be referring to him in the past tense. It is difficult to come to terms with the fact that the prophet has well and truly gone to be with his Maker. The prophet was a dedicated servant who dwelled in the presence of God; a man of such humility, and knowledge, a man so infinitely impactful, personable with a reassuring presence,” he said
The delegation includes Professor Joshua Alabi, Madam Sherry Ayitey, and Elvis Afriyie Ankrah.
Temitope Balogun Joshua (TB Joshua) died on Saturday evening at age 57, a week to his 58th birthday on June 12.

‘You are disappointed in Npp cos you voted for NPP, you will never Vote NDC. But please, you have no right to also tell someone else how to feel about NDC. T 4 thanks’.
Controversial Ghanaian comedian and event host, Derick Kobina Boney has reacted to the ‘March For Justice demonstration members and supporters of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC) held today on the streets of Accra.
There have been growing concerns about the use of the military for civil events that ordinarily should be handled by the police and on Tuesday, July 6, 2021, to demand justice for all persons killed or brutalized by various security agencies in the country.
The incidents that have angered many include the killing of some Ghanaians during the 2020 election, the invasion of Parliament by soldiers, the latest killing of two persons, and the injuring of four others who were protesting at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
The NDC’s National Youth Organiser, George Opare Addo, stated that the march is also to call on the government to fix several issues arising in the country.
“We intend to demonstrate and tell this government about our misgivings about happenings in this country. It is going to be a very peaceful march. We are marching for justice for our fallen brothers and sisters, to tell this government to fix the country, and create enough jobs for young people. We want the culture of silence to be broken and insecurity within the country tackled.”
Sharing his thoughts on the demonstration, DKB said the police and the Akufo Addo led government should have allowed the demonstration to have happened long time ago when some citizens including the NDC youth wing wanted to embark on the demonstration because the demonstration had no impact on the country.
According to him, as far as the attitude of people and the state of governance and economy is concerned, nothing has changed even after the demonstration and it will remain like this.

Details emerging from the scandalous GH¢3.6 million branding contract for 116 Metro Mass Transit (MMT) buses indicate that it (contract) was awarded to Selassie Ibrahim, an activist of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The detailed Pro-forma invoice of the controversial GH¢3.6 million branding contract is believed to have been submitted to Minister of Transport Dzifa Attivor by Smarttys Management and Productions, a company reportedly owned by the renowned actress, Selassie Ibrahim, wife of Ibrahim Adams.
The figure on the Pro-forma Invoice submitted by Smarttys Management and Productions represents the cost of the 116 branded MMT buses, which was presented to Members of Parliament (MPs) on the floor of Parliament recently.
Dated July 17, 2015, the invoice, believed to have been signed by the accounts officer of the company, according to media reports making the rounds yesterday, details how the grand total of the controversial amount was arrived at.
On the invoice sighted by Daily Guide, the material cost for spraying each of the buses in red, yellow and green colours was pegged at GH¢14,210.00.
Labour cost for spraying each of the buses was fixed at GH¢3000, cost of save coating at GH¢1,210.00, with labour cost for putting stickers on each of the 116 buses being GH¢2,000.00, among others. The total cost incurred on each of the buses was GH¢30,420.00.
Until the media intercepted the invoice, the government did not make public the document for some unknown reasons.
Meanwhile, pressure is beginning to mount on the NDC government for an urgent audit to be conducted into what led to the use of poor taxpayers’ money to brand the buses at such an exorbitant cost.
A group championing the cause of accountable governance in Ghana and internationally, Critical Thinkers International, is leading the crusade for an audit into the actual cost of branding the buses as the Minority New Patriotic Party (NPP) strongly believes that the GH¢3.6 million quoted by government as being the cost of branding the buses was ‘bloated’ and unacceptable.
Critical Thinkers, in a statement released and jointly signed by its spokespersons, Kwadwo Akowuah Acheampong, Nana Kwadwo Akwaa, Kwabena Asemani Afari and Nana Kyei Baffour, called on the Auditor-General and the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament to institute an investigation into what made the country incur such a colossal cost on just the branding of the vehicles at a time the national economy is struggling to survive as a result of mismanagement and wanton corruption within public circles.
The branding of the new Chinese Huanghai buses for the MMT with portraits of John Mahama and past presidents of Ghana is one of many questionable projects of the NDC administration.
The Minority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, raised the issue on the floor of Parliament on Tuesday apparently accusing President Mahama of presiding over a corrupt regime.
Critical Thinkers International in its statement pointed out that it was unfortunate that such an amount could be expended on just the re-branding of 116 buses of MMT at a unit cost of GH¢31,457.28.
The group bemoaned, “It baffles our minds for any well-meaning Ghanaian of sound mind to make sense out of this. How can just re-branding of a bus cost us over GH¢31,000?
“We live in a lower middle income country which has been plunged into a neck-wrecking debt which is sinking our economy and our leaders find it sensible to re-brand buses at such nonsensical and astronomically quoted prices.”
But the Minister of Transport, Dzifa Attivor, is reported to have stated that “branding 116 buses cost GH¢3.6m because artistic work is generally expensive,” subtly insulting the intelligence of Ghanaians.
Radio and TV Presenter Valentina Nana Afia Adjeiwaa popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger, is rooting for daughter former President Rawlings Dr Zanetor Rawlings to win the ongoing NDC primaries.
The “Kokooko”hostess took to Instagram this morning to show her support for the promising politician. She posted Zanetor’s photo with this caption.
“Klottey korle is my constituency and that’s where I cast my vote…I don’t believe in any political party…I believe in individuals I believe in Dr Zanetor Rawlings and I will vote for her to be in parliament if given the mandate She is beauty with brains!!!!#Ashantigirlsrock”.
Meanwhile, news coming in about the ongoing National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries indicates that, Dr. Zanetor Rawlings’ name is missing in the voters’ register in the Korle Klottey constituency.
All attempts to trace her name to vote in the ongoing presidential and parliamentary primaries have proved futile.
Zenator has reportedly been to three different polling stations but is yet to find her name on any of the voters’ register. She is contesting incumbent Nii Armah Ashitey and grandson of national hero Tetteh Quarshie, Leeford Kpakpo Quarshie.
