The NDC Ashanti Regional Chairman hopeful and former Deputy Sports Minister, Joseph Yammin, wants a re-election for the NPP current Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as ‘Chairman Wontumi’.
The former deputy Ashanti regional minister under the erstwhile Mahama administration, speaking on Abusua Nkommo told host Austin Woode that though Wontumi is his opponent politically he wishes him well in his quest for re-election in his party’s Regional elections.
He mentioned that he has some good relationship with Chairman Wontumi, as he was his junior at Prempeh College and appreciates his positive traits.
“Chairman Wontumi though we represent different values politically, I admire his work during the time NPP was in opposition by leading the charge for the party to win the 2016 general elections,” Yamin stated.
“Chairman Wontumi deserves to be re-elected so he can send the party back to opposition in 2020. He really deserves to send the party back to power. I am surprised people are questioning his ability to speak English and other credentials. This is not fair. The man doesn’t want to be minister, he wants to be chairman again give him that opportunity to take the party back to opposition,” Mr Yammin said.
Joseph Yamin further noted that his interest in the NPP elections is to see Wontumi win the championship race, adding that Wontumi who is also known as the governor must win the elections so that the NDC can beat the NPP hands down in the 2020 elections.
“We in the NDC are not afraid of NPP, we want NPP to bring their strong men to the fore so that during 2020 elections, we will show them we are coming back to power, the NPP is indeed super incompetent,” Mr. Yammin said.
The regional executive elections of NPP is becoming keener by the day with much of the focus on the Chairmanship position, where chairman Wontumi’s re-elections is heavily been contested by the Asokwa Constituency chairman, Asare Bediako who on several times has been reported within the media of a withdrawal from the contest.
