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”
