Some four members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are alleged to be on the payroll of the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi.

The four are reportedly working to sabotage the chances of former President John Mahama in the Region for the 2020 Presidential Election.

Mr. Mahama is leading the NDC into the 2020 election as its flagbearer.

But according to the Women’s Wing of the Party, the four individuals are sabotaging his chances.

The Women’s Wing named the four persons in a statement as former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Joseph Yammin, former Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ejisu-Juaben, Afrifa Yamoah Ponkoh and an avowed member of the NDC, Appiah.

“The current Ashanti Regional NDC Executives lead by our able Chairman Mr Augustus Andrews affectionately called Nana Akwasi are a very big threat to NPP and their illiterate and incapable Regional Chairman Mr Antwi Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi,” according to the statement signed by Gloria Huze, NDC Ashanti Regional Women’s Organizer.

It said, “Mr Wontumi is using his childish and immature tactics in a way of influencing and financing some of our key members who have become a mole in the Ashanti Regional NDC to embarrass the Regional Chairman of NDC.”

The statement added that “I want to say it emphatically without no fear or doubt that Mr Joseph Yamin, Hon Afrifa Yamoah Ponkoh and Appiah Stadium are the said key members of NDC in Ashanti Region who have been meeting Chairman Wontumi underground to collect money for their personal gain and to create impression that Our Chairman Nana Akwasi is incapable, by way of praising Chairman Wontumi on media for people to think Wontumi is so powerful, simply because Yamoah Ponkoh and Appiah Stadium are loyalists of Mr Yamin and their boss Joseph Yamin lost his contest against Chairman Nana Akwasi during the party’s Regional Elections but Mr Yamin and his stomach greedy bastards the so-called Team Yamin don’t know their actions and comments is preventing the second coming of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, so we want Hon Joseph Yamin specifically and his team Yamin members Yamoah Ponkoh and Appiah Stadium to come out boldly and curse themselves if they have never collected money from Chairman Wontumi”.
