The Ashanti Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who has been re-elected in the Sunday May 29 internal election, Bernard Antwi Boasiako (Chairman Wontumi) has been told to change his attitude in order to ensure that the NPP breaks the 8-year cycle in the 2024 general elections.
This call was made by some disgruntled NPP serial callers in the Ashanti region. The serial callers campaigned against Chairman Wontumi.
Theor spokesperson, Abilele told journalists after the elections in Kumasi on Monday May 30 that “Now the election is over, I think we are all here as a family, we thank those who supported us and those who didn't support us. What we are saying if the Chairman who has been re-elected is hearing me, what we need from him is a change.
“He should change his attitude because if he doesn't change his attitude then I don't believe the breaking the 8, we are going to break that 8.”
Chairman Wontumi indicated his his victory speech that the governing party will definitely break the 8-year cycle in the 2024 general elections.
He said the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot stop the NPP's plan of winning the 2024 polls.
In his victory speech on Saturday May 28 after the NPP's Ashanti region election at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi he said “our campaign of breaking the 8 has stared from Baba Yara Stadium, NDC cannot stop us.
“[NDC] can lie, [NDC] can spread fake news but winning the 2024 elections is a movement.”
He polled 464 votes against his closest contender's 306.
