A staunch member of the New Patriotic Party in the United States of America, Danny Opoku Antwi yesterday in an interview on Fox FM hosted by Oheneba Nana Asiedu, has stated the NPP in Ashanti Region has been taken by ransom by some section of greedy and selfish Regional Executives.
According to him, the Regional Chairman, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako who is popularly known as Chairman Wontumi has been compromised by some aspiring candidates in the orphan constituencies and is doing everything within his means to make such candidates go unopposed in the upcoming primaries for the orphan constituencies.
This according to Danny is a recipe for apathy for the party if allowed to stand and a smack in the face of the party’s touted democratic credentials.
“My party is in tatters in Ashanti Region. The national leadership should conduct an independent research to find out if what I’m saying is true or false. Don’t wait till last minute, because it will be too late if you look on now. ALL IS NOT WELL IN THE REGION. Some Regional Executives are there to settle personal scores not the interest of the party. Selfish and greedy people are in control. You will thank me later if you act now to save the party from falling into the doldrums. It’s time to show leadership and stop the rhetorics” – Danny Opoku Antwi stated.
Danny also pointed out that, there is a grand scheme to imposed most of the sitting MPs in Ashanti Region who are not performing on their constituencies and what Chairman Wontumi has started in the orphan constituencies if allowed to hold will be a catalyst for the primaries of the sitting MPs.
“With the unoppose, unoppose agenda being spearheaded in the orphan constituencies within the region by Bernard Antwi Boasiako (Chairman Wontumi) if allowed to hold would be precedence for Wontumi to impose Sitting Members of Parliament on their constituents even if they are not performing. This is an intelligence I picked from Wontumi’s closet, the orphan constituencies are just dress reheasal” he added
In conclusion he said that “The constitutional mandate of the polling station executives to elect their choice of Member of Parliament are been taken from through mafia and crooked means by Wontumi because of his selfish interest”
