Lying and Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako alias Chairman Wontumi are like sesame twins, Former Ashanti Regional Vice Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alhaji Mohammed Sani said.
He is certain that the day Chairman Wontumi will speak the truth will be his last day on earth because he has gained notoriety in peddling falsehood which is also in his DNA.
According to him, Chairman Wontumi is a serial liar and should not be taken serious on matters of national interest since trusting such a person amounts to hopelessness.
Reacting to claims on Accra-based Asempa Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com that only 700 persons showed up for the ‘Yenpini’ demonstration in Kumasi last Tuesday, he said “Wontumi is a liar and the day he will speak the truth, he will die that day. I am challenging you to put him on line and I will tell him in the face that he is a liar. A young man like his caliber should not be lying around”
Alhaji Sani admits he lies sometimes but not like Wontumi who without any compulsion lies through his teeth just because of politics in order to please his pay pastors.
In his view, the demonstration was targeted at 20,000 persons but over 30,000 showed up commending organizers for a good job done and showing the NPP in Ashanti Region that the NDC is gradually gaining roots there.
Chairman Wontumi had called Tuesday’s march by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Kumasi as a total failure that eventually went to his benefit.
He says per his estimates, only 700 people showed up for the demonstration against the Electoral Commission’s (EC) decision to compile new voters register for the 2020 elections, because he “as a governor”, I followed the march closely and can confidently say that the numbers were disappointing.
Wontumi says he employed people to do a headcount of the demonstrators and he was briefed of the numbers at every step of the walk; “I won’t even call it a demonstration, it was a keep fit exercise; now I have benefitted because I have been able to mafia them to put a stop to all future demonstrations”.
