The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Manhyia South Constituency Chairman, Richard Adjei Mensah Ofori Atta has called on the National Organizer of his party, Mr Henry Nana Boakye, 'Nana B' to give a vivid account of an incident that took place during the party’s vetting of Parliamentary Aspirants in the Ashanti Region.

According to the report, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as 'Chairman Wontumi,' acted in a manner that showed some form of disrespect to His Royal Majesty Tumfuo Osei Tutu II, during the vetting

But a statement from Nana B suggests Wontumi never disrespected the Asantehene in any form as far as he is concerned.  

Read Nana B’s statement below  

My attention has been drawn to a media reportage suggesting that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, has acted in a manner that is disrespectful to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the party’s recently held Ashanti Regional Parliamentary Vetting.  

As the Chairman of the Vetting Committee, I can recall a little misunderstanding that ensued between the Regional Chairman and the Manhyia South Constituency Organizer which I was committed to resolving. However, I in my capacity as the Chairman of the committee did not witness any such conduct by the Regional Chairman that sought to disparage or lower the authority of our revered and highly respected King during the conduct of our work as a Committee.

Manhyia South Constituency’s rebuttal  

According to the chairman of the constituency, Nana B’s statement is a coverup to what really happened during the wetting.

Chairman ‘Tom Tom’ as affectionately called in politics in a statement called on Nana B to “retract and apologize” within 24 hours before he is exposed.

“Having carefully read Nana B’s statement, which is full of blatant lies, I am calling on him to retract and apologize by close of today, Thursday, January 18, 2024, else I will come out with the full facts tomorrow, Friday, January 19, 2024.” A portion of the statement said.

Read below the full statement

I have become aware of a statement issued by the National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as 'Nana B', on an incident that took place during the party’s vetting of Parliamentary Aspirants in the Ashanti Region, held at the Dr Bawumia campaign office at Asokwa, Kumasi, on January 3, 2024.

In his statement, Nana B described false, media reports which suggest that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as 'Chairman Wontumi,' acted in a manner that shows disrespect to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, during the vetting.

Nana B went ahead to state: “As the Chairman of the Vetting Committee, I can recall a little misunderstanding that ensued between the Regional Chairman and the Manhyia South Constituency Organizer which I was committed to resolving. However, in my capacity as the Chairman of the committee, I did not witness any such conduct by the Regional Chairman that sought to disparage or lower the authority of our revered and highly respected King during the conduct of our work as a Committee.”

Having carefully read Nana B’s statement, which is full of blatant lies, I am calling on him to retract and apologize by close of today, Thursday, January 18, 2024, else I will come out with the full facts tomorrow, Friday, January 19, 2024.

I must add that there were about 40 people in the vetting room and the facts can not be hidden.
