NPP flagbearer aspirant and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has heavily descended on the Ashanti Regional chairman of the party, Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, Chairman Wontumi has taken the party ransom by deploying rogue tactics to do the bidding of some elements in the NPP.
Speaking at a political walk in Kumasi dubbed “Showdown”, the flagbearer aspirant lamented the many instances Chairman Wontumi used his media outlets to attack other bigwigs in the NPP.
Citing a case to buttress his claim, Kennedy Agyapong did not take kindly the utterances of Chairman Wontumi against the person of the former Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen, who has resigned from the party.
He therefore warned the chairman that going forward, he is going to meet his tactics in equal measure.
Speaking at the rally, the firebrand politician indicated “I dare Wontumi to make a mistake and he will see men in this country, he will see men in Ghana. You operate a radio and TV station to insult elderly people.
“I dare Wontumi to come here and deny, he was a full-blooded Alan supporter and I convinced him to switch to the side of President Akufo-Addo. You can support Akufo-Addo or Vice President Bawumia but don’t insult,” Agyapong told the mammoth crowd.
On attacks on the person of Alan, Agyapong stated: “Alan is being insulted on Wontumi’s station. Wontumi is just a small boy, he is a small boy. It is sad that Wontumi and five chairmen – from four northern regions and the Volta Region – have turned the National Council into a hooliganism group.”
Agyapong will contest for the flagbearership slot of the NPP along with three other contenders including Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Francis-Addai-Nimoh.
