NPP Regional elections: Party big guns blocking Wontumi’s contender
There is growing concerns within the ranks and file of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the Ashanti Region following the machinations to block Mr Robert Asare-Bediako from contesting the incumbent Regional Chairman, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako, aka Chairman Wontumi in the regional chairmanship race.
“He was called on Thursday on his way to the vetting to abort his move but he went through the vetting successfully. But the pressure became intense during the Easter festivities, he was called to meet some big men so that he will not contest,” a source told Graphic Online.
But sources say Antwi Boasiako withdrawing his candidature will be a great disappointment to his massive followers including Members of Parliament, Regional and constituency executive and ordinary party members within the region.
