Wontumi fires NPP: My benevolence doesn't make me a fool

Some have labeled him an illiterate and stated that without the support of his wealth, the aspiring Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) can never lead the Party.

But this labeling seems to have damaged the persona of Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako, who quickly took to the airwaves of Okay FM to debunk that notion.

Mr. Antwi Boasiako who is also known as "Chairman Wontumi", revealed that he completed Prempeh College in 1996 and made it to a Bible School in Illinois to learn about God afterwards. As part of his educational training, he added that he attended a school in the United Kingdom to learn about security.

This educational cycle makes "Chairman Wontumi" a complete student and he wonders why certain people within his party would label him an illiterate and claim he depends on his wealth for political survival.

He appealed to them not to mistaken his benevolence to the party to mean he is a fool who didn’t know what to do with his money.

He ended his submission by asking the unknown faces behind his downfall whether they have come across a foolish wealthy man before.
