Wontumi must stop ‘attacking’ Prez Mahama, or… – Group

Young Cadres Association (YCA) Young Cadres Association (YCA)

A group calling itself the Young Cadres Association (YCA) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has cautioned the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Bernard Antwi Bosiako to restrain from attacking the Mahama-led administration or face their wrath.

The group raised issues that the NPP chairman has been found of directing ‘insults’ at President Mahama – and accusing the party falsely.

“We have vowed to match people like Wontumi boot-for-boot whenever they spew their rubbish into the public domain,” the group maintained.

According to the General Secretary of the group, Bright Botchway – “Anytime Chairman Wontumi and his opposition political party decide to contribute to the national discourse, nothing but utter gibberish comes out.”

The group’s warning comes after Chairman Wontumi as affectionately called in politics said that – President John Dramani Mahama is a “curse” to the nation.

Wontumi explained that the hardship Ghanaians are facing now is due to the President’s incompetency – after calling on Ghanaians to vote against him in the upcoming elections.

But Bright Botchway has questioned why the NPP man always ‘attack’ the president in his utterances – “This desperate man from a desperate party has no campaign message, except to insult and throw dust into the eyes of the good people of Ghana. How ridiculous for such an apology of a leader to say such things about the President?”

He further noted that – “For the chiefs and people across the length and breadth of this country praising the President and endorsing him for a second term, President Mahama's rule has not been a curse; for the countless school-going kids who would have hitherto spent their times sweating their lives on the streets, the President's interventions in the education sector can only be a blessing."

"...Kejetia market woman who will be trading in ultra-modern stores and sheds in the next couple of months, the President's term in office cannot be seen to be a curse; and for the millions of Ghanaians who will benefit from improved health due to the unprecedented investments in the health sector, President Mahama's reign can only be equated to a period of prosperity.”

Leadership of the YCA also maintained in a statement that copied to that – “Our nation is fast regaining its tag as the beacon of hope in Africa under President Mahama. We are regaining what we lost.”

“If there has been any time in our political lives in which our land had been cursed, it surely was the time when the national disgrace barometer climbed to its highest point because our country had been reduced into a cocaine trafficking hub. That time, is certainly not the time of President John Mahama!

“Wontumi's penchant for preposterous claims has made him a laughing stock even in his own party and the earlier he desists from such claims about the first gentleman of the land, the better it will be for him. He must stop attacking the President,” the group said.
