By Yaw Tutugyagu.
The politcal stupidity of the New Patriotic Party’s Ashanti Regional Chairman has reached its crescendo.
Ashanti region the political hub of the NPP has in the few years lacked quality leadership skills simply because of the abuse of office by Wontumi and the sycophancy and lalasulala of Sam Pyne, the political butcher who is only building his stomach infrastructure.
Trip down memory lane, the NPP in 2008 elections due to internal wranglings led to the party losing two key strong seats in the region (Besome Freho and Bekwai).
The Vultures of 2008 are being brought back by Wontumi.
The guy who has been corrupted by power and so thinks he is on top of all in Ashanti region and thinks the Owner of Asante (Otumfuor Osei Tutu II) is even a subject to him.
They will soon send messages out that Ibrahim Manaf was called by the Disciplinary Committee but he didn’t avail himself, ignore that lie. Remember the Ekow Ewusi episode in Central region.
Ask them what was the Crime of Ibrahim Manaf?
THE ANTI IBRAHIM MANAF AGENDA
The underlying factors surrounding Asawase NPP internal wranglings.
Bernard Antwi Bosiako (Wuntomi) has not been in good terms with Manaf Ibrahim since January, 2014 when both were part of NPP Ashanti Regional Executive Committee. Wontumi as chairman and Ibrahim Manaf as Deputy Secretary.
Ibrahim Manaf did not allow Wontumi to supress the dictates of the NPP Constitution when the region was to select/elect the regional council of elders. Manaf corrected the wrongs of Wontumi by writing to national which led to annulment of the self imposed elders and proper election was held to fill the vacancies.
Ibrahim Manaf left after Asawase Primaries and joined the running mate then Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to campaign for power.
During the 2018 regional chaimanship race, Manaf supported Robert Asare-Bediako which was his democratic right to do. Wontumi was not happy about that and that deepened the hate for Ibrahim Manaf.
In other not to be seen as fighting only manaf, Wontumi intentionally brought an idea of Operation WIN ALL 47 Seats and said he has the magic wand to winning all 47 seats for NPP this time and some big wigs have bought into it and so not able to tame him.
When asked how he will win the 3 orphan seats, his answer is the MCEs in the region must be allowed to stand as the candidates of NPP there.
My worry is if these MCEs were strong to win the NPP these 3 seats, why prevent as well as suspend other equally qualified aspirants to contest them?
If the so called MCEs to unseat the NDC candidates are potent, why the fear?
Why must the Ejura Sekyeredumase constituency secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP ), Ms. Gifty Ndoma be suspended because of A certain MCE.
Ask yourself why Wuntomi pushed for the 2018 Ashanti regional conference to be held in Ejura when Asare-Bediako was in the race ? Is it a thank you to M. S. Bamba the flip flopper?
Is he thanking Alidu with Asawase because he gets his % in contracts there?.
