The Ashanti Regional Chairman for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako affectionately called Chairman ‘Wontumi’
has ordered members of the New Patriotic Party in the region to attack the residence of members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) if any market burns in the region.
According to him, the NDC is behind the various markets that have been razed down by fire in some parts of the country and it’s imperative that they attack them anytime they burn any market in the Ashanti Region.
When reminded that two wrongs do not make a right, the Chairman indicated that when there is no peace, Justice cannot be achieved and therefore, it’s imperative that the NPP attacks them as a payback for their recklessness.
“Mahama says he’s giving you money to burn down places? Look if they burn a market, wherever members of the NDC are you should attack them. If they cause mayhem, wherever NDC supporters are we should attack them.”
He continued:” when there is no peace, there’s no justice. So, if they won’t give us peace how can justice prevail? How can you tell me that two wrongs don’t make a right”?
Citing a reference from the bible with when Jacob stole the birthright of his eldest brother, Chairman Wontumi said if the markets are burnt there is no way it can be replaced and therefore there is the need to retaliate.
“All I’m saying is that the people in the Ashanti Kingdom should identify wherever NDC members reside and if anything, bad happens we should go after them.”
