I will support Ken Agyapong contest in Ashanti Region - Wontumi

The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi, says he is ready to support the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, should he come to the Ashanti region to contest for a parliamentary seat.

He is of the belief that despite flaws associated with Mr Agyapong, he believes he is very generous and has contributed immensely to his constituency and Ghanaians as a whole.

"I don't care if Mr Agyapong has flaws, but one thing I love about him is that he is very generous and has his people at heart.

“After finishing his MP job in the Central region, I will make sure he comes to the Ashanti region and contest as a parliamentary candidate, and I will make sure he goes unopposed in any constituency he desires to lead because his works are just enormous” he stated.

Listen to Chairman Wontumi

Mr. Agyapong has come under some public attack following remarks he made about the circumstances that led to the appointment of Mrs Charlotte Osei as Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

Meanwhile, discussions are ongoing among some Majority Members of Parliament (MPs) to summon the Assin Central MP before Parliament's Privileges Committee over his comments about the Electoral Commission (EC) Chair.
