You were not my choice but let’s work together – Wontumi tells JFK

The Ashanti Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako (Chairman Wontumi) has promised to work hard with the newly elected national executives to end the party’s 8-year electoral cycle.

In a letter to the newly elected General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, he stated that while he supported John Boadu against him, God knows best, and thus he accepts the outcome.

“God knows what is good for our dear party, I supported JB but the delegates in their own wisdom chose you. We look forward to working hard so that together we can ‘Break The 8’ may God bless you and once again congratulations to you and the NPP for successful elections ” Chairman Wontumi said.

John Boadu lost his seat in the National Annual Delegates’ Conference of his party on Saturday, July 16.

He was defeated by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), Justin Kodua Frimpong.

JFK as he is affectionately known, polled 2,837 of the total valid votes cast to beat the incumbent John Boadu, who polled 2,524 votes.

Following the outcome of the elections, New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart Kennedy Ohene Agyapong issued a salvo to Chairman Wontumi to stay calm in the face of internal elections.

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency said it was wrong for him, and 15 other regional chairmen to openly declare support for a candidate.

“The signal is clear to every senior member of the party not to come openly and raise hands,” he said.

“The 15 chairmen and the Central Regional Chairman, where are the 16 chairmen? They should be ashamed of themselves because they couldn’t decide for the party.

“My brother Wontumi should cool down. He should cool down [because] he doesn’t own this party. He doesn’t at all. He has to cool down.”

He explained that Chairman Wontumi cajoled the other chairmen to raise hands openly to support some candidates.

“All of them have been embarrassed. If it had been anywhere, all the chairmen would resign.”
