Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi is expected to appear before members of the Kumasi Traditional Council today, Monday, 29 January 2024.
Chairman Wontumi has been wanted by the second-highest decision-making body of the Asante Kingdom following alleged derogatory remarks against the Asantehene, resulting from an altercation with the Kokosohene, Nana Kwaku Dua, during the vetting of parliamentary aspirants in the Ashanti region.
Despite denying the accusations, Chairman Wontumi failed to appear before the traditional council for a hearing due to health reasons.
The NPP’s national leadership, pleading for more time on his behalf, was directed to ensure his appearance within a week.
An invitation letter from the Council has called for the meeting today at 11:00 a.m.
Despite his previous absence on health grounds, Chairman Wontumi was seen in the Bantama Constituency during the NPP’s Parliamentary Primaries, stating his well-being to journalists.
It remains uncertain if he will attend today’s meeting.
