Attempts by elements within the opposition National Democratic Congress to smear the hardworking Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi, has been exposed.
The opposition, obviously reeling under the intensed pressure being mounted on its Presidential Candidate, Mr. John Dramani Mahama by the tough-talking NPP regional chairman, had schemed to incite Chairman Wontumi against some members of his own party.
Reliable source indicates that the opposition party, in its desperate efforts, was planning to plant a story that suggested that Chairman Wontumi had refused to share monies earmarked for all constituency executives in the region.
This wicked plot, the opposition party intended to execute by forming a non-existing concerned association who would issue a statement alleging financial misappropriation on the part of the Ashanti Regional Chairman.
Information indicates that the opposition party, after forming the association, will then christen it as a group within the NPP, though such people never existed.
They would then pursue an aggressive media strategy by pushing the story through various news portals just to court disaffection against Chairman Wontumi.
