Odike Is Not Serious To Be On My Radar – Chairman Wontumi
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako has vehemently denied allegations that he masterminded the disqualification of Akwasi Addai Odike of RPP. According to him Odike is not a serious politician to be captured on his radar of contestants.
But Odike is heard on numerous radio stations attributing his disqualification to Chairman Wontumi.
Speaking on the Wontumi Morning Show on Wontumi TV/Radio, Chairman Wontumi said Odike is not a serious contender for him to concentrate on.
‘Odike is not serious in life.I don’t have tine for him. Why should I waste my time for such a person,’ he quizzed.
Chairman Wontumi jabbed Odike that he has failed woefully in every enterprise he ventures. ‘This alone tells you that he will fail in everything he does. His own Gyataba took his party from him because he was not serious.’ He stressed.
The Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) has disqualified five flagbearers from contesting this year’s presidential elections.
The five are Kwesi Addai Odike, Kofi Koranteng, Kofi Game, Kwesi Busumbru and Nana Agyenim Boateng.
The Chair of the EC, Jean Mensa said in a media briefing on Monday October 19 that there were issues with the forms of the disqualified persons.
She further noted that the Commission will report those that centre on criminality to the Ghana Police Service for further investigations.
