Chairman Wontumi has been a complete disaster – Kofi Jumah

Maxwell Kofi Jumah, a leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ashanti Region and the Managing Director of GIHOC Distilleries, has condemned the party’s eight-year rule in the region as a total failure.

Former Asokwa Member of Parliament (MP) Benard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, was singled out by the former MP as an utter failure during his period in government.

Mr. Kofi Jumah lashed out at the current Ashanti Region NPP leadership, calling them as failures and urging delegates to vote against them all but two, on Akoma FM’s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma on Friday, May 27.

“I can tell you that all those seeking reelection, with the exception of the regional Organiser, Francis Adomako, and the Women’s Organizer, must be voted out.” Apart from these two, all of the regional executives, including Wontumi, have failed the party.”

He then graded the five candidates for chairperson, ranking Wontumi as the worst of the five.

He told the show’s host, Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin, that “among all the five aspirants for the apex position, that is the chairman race, Wontumi has the least political experience, so I will rate him one, and I will rate his close rival Chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, popularly known as COKA, with three over three because he has the academic qualifications to critically analyze data and make informed decisions and projections.”

Mr Kofi also slammed the current chairman for “unnecessarily leading a showy lifestyle,” which he described as “giving a poor perception about the administration and so making the party unpopular.” If Chairman Wontumi is re-elected, it will be extremely difficult for the NPP to breach the eight-vote barrier.”
