Ashanti Region Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Augustus Nana Akwasi has said Bernard Antwi Boasiako’s retention as New Patriotic Party’s regional chairman is a good omen for his party.
He stated that Chairman Wontumi’s win is good for the NDC in the Ashanti Region because the opposition party will increase its vote in 2024.
“In the 2020 election, the NDC secured over 26 percent, better than 2016 when the party had 23 percent.
“Wontumi bragged that he would conquer all 47 seats in the [Ashanti] Region but what happened at the end of the day, the NDC took four and also ensured that the NPP dropped from 76 to 71 percent.”
He said Wontumi’s re-election is a welcoming news.
“We congratulate him for winning; now everything shows that NDC under John Dramani Mahama is coming back to save Ghanaians from severe hardship,” he said.
