Wontumi is the most selfless politician I have ever seen - F. F. Antoh

The First Vice National Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Frederick Fredua Antoh, has described the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako a.k.a Chairman Wontumi, as one of the most selfless and dedicated politician he has seen in modern times.

“I must confess that in my entire political career, I have never seen someone who is as selfless and dedicated to the cause of this party like Chairman Wontumi” the former Regional Chairman of the party noted.

The testimony by the First National Vice Chairman of the ruling party follows latest show of magnanimity to the party with the donation of GHC250,000.00 towards the ongoing polling station elections in six regions.

Chairman Wontumi’s remarkable achievements since elected into office as the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP include the payment of ten years fully rented office accommodation for the party, sponsoring the nomination fees for all constituency executives in the region, donation of posters to Parliamentary candidates in the ten regions, footing the bills of polling agents during the 2016 elections.

The latest which appears to have mesmerized Mr. F. F Antoh, the man who was the Ashanti Regional Chairman during the crucial 2000 elections, is the doling out of the GHC 250,000.00 for six regions including the three northern regions.

According to Mr. Antoh, “Chairman Wontumi has done something that some of us could never imagine. Since the time of Dr. Donkor Fordjour, I have never witnessed who is so committed and love this party and is ready to spend his resources for the NPP like Wontumi, I think the truth must be told” Mr. Antoh opined during meetings at various constituencies in the Ashanti Region where he is currently supervising that though as human, Chairman Wontumi may have his excesses, showing his love towards the party is not one of them’.
