The Ashanti Region Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Andrew Nana Akwasi, has thrown support for Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, to be retained as the regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He described his opposite number as a firebrand who can best lead the ruling party in the Region.
In a shock revelation to Northern Sector Bureau Chief of Media General, William Evans-Nkum, Nana Akwasi said: “I am currently talking to some of the delegates in the NPP to vote for Wontumi.
“I even sponsored the campaign of some of the current constituency executives,” he added although he would not disclose the names of the said executives or which constituencies he had infiltrated.
Political Scientist Dr Amoako Baah, who is also a staunch member of the ruling party, had hinted at political infiltration involving the two major political parties in Ghana.
He had told William Evans-Nkum: “I have an evidence where in 2016 some NPP members took money from NDC to do their bidding.”
Dr Baah stated that the allegation by the NDC chairman can only be confirmed after the regional elections.
“If Wontumi wins, he stands to gain,” he retorted.
