The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, known as Chairman Wontumi has dared the former President, John Dramani Mahama to step foot in the Regional Capital, Kumasi.
According to him, the 2020 flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot do so after labeling the overlord of Ashanti a ‘liar’.
The former president has come under heavy criticisms from the people of the Ashanti region and especially from the ruling NPP after a former Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah published a statement to debunk a comment at the UN by the Asantehene that, he had to persuade Mr John Mahama to concede defeat after the 2016 elections.
Mr Mahama’s critics say the use of his official letterhead to carry Mr Debrah’s response was his cunning way to call the revered monarch a “liar’.
In an interview on Angel FM on Tuesday, ‘Wontumi’ challenged the former president to step foot in the Ashanti region if he is man enough.
He claimed “the wife of Mr Mahama, Lordina was pushing his husband to defy the warnings and embark on a trip to the Ashanti region”.
