In the Ashanti Region’s New Patriotic Party (NPP), tensions are escalating amidst accusations of unilateral decision-making and a lack of transparency within the party’s leadership, are leveled against Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as Wontumi.

Tensions are mounting within the Ashanti Region’s New Patriotic Party (NPP) as accusations of unilateral decision-making and lack of transparency
The dispute stems from the alleged formation of committees to oversee regional affairs, sparking dissent among party members, particularly Regional Organizer Dr. Francis Adomako. Adomako expressed disappointment over the absence of established committees two years post-election, asserting that neither he nor his colleagues were consulted on this matter.

In an interview with Kofi Asante Ennin on Akoma FM, Adomako vehemently denied the existence of a Disciplinary Committee, dismissing such claims as deceitful. He voiced frustration over being sidelined in the selection of his deputy and criticized the imposition of individuals without consultation.

Additionally, concerns were raised regarding the region’s representation at the National Council, with allegations of key stakeholders being excluded from the decision-making process. Adomako disavowed any involvement in addressing a petition against the Manhyia South Constituency Chairman, stating his unawareness of any disciplinary committee tasked with such matters.

Meanwhile, six members of the Regional Executives Committee of the Ashanti Region have filed a formal complaint against Chairman Wontumi, accusing him of neglecting his responsibilities, which they believe is impeding the party’s progress in the region.

In a petition dated Friday, March 22, 2024, addressed to the party’s General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, the executives highlighted Chairman Wontumi’s failure to convene a Regional Executive Committee meeting for over four months. They emphasized that this absence of regular meetings hampers their ability to address critical matters and undermines democratic processes within the regional party.

The executives urge the party’s leadership to swiftly address their grievances to ensure the NPP’s effective operation in the region and maintain its commitment to transparency, inclusivity, and strong leadership.

They stress the urgency of resolving these matters to guarantee the success of the party’s upcoming campaign activities, which depend on united and proactive leadership at all levels.
