The New Patriotic Party (NPP) chairman for the Ashanti Region, Bernard Antwi Boasiako has revealed that he started building his wealth at a young age, insisting he owns “about 100” houses in Kumasi.

The man who is popularly referred as ‘Chairman Wontumi’ in Ghana’s political certain says his assets would even have been more, but for the evil intents of some National Democratic Congress (NDC) persons who “took everything away” from him.

Wontumi adds that he has always been critical of the decisions he takes while revealing that he built his 25-bedroom house while he was just 22 years.

“Life is very easy but the way you want it to be will make it difficult for you so when I was a child my dad taught me how to live my life, so I started life well, at 22 years I knew what I needed to do,” Wontumi is quoted as saying by Ultimatefmonline.com

“In Economics we have something called scale of preference, so I choose what is best for me. I am not young, I am a businessman. My thoughts are all business oriented. At 22-years, I had built my first 25-bedroom house, [and] I have about hundred houses or more in Kumasi alone. I know what is called money, go to PPMC and check I used to get about one million dollars a day."

“When you go to Japan and Nagasaki you [will] see Toyota cars, I assembled cars called Wontumi. I am the only person who assembled cars in Africa named Wontumi and my trade mark was on it until NDC people took everything."

“I have some of the cars in Kuntenase, and NDC people took it away from me. You know the incident that happened to me, the mining site [and] everything. You see once the evil one comes, he comes to destroy. But God didn’t permit them; he just hid my soul from the enemies. David said when I was in the dark the Lord set a table before me in the presence of my enemies and stuff.”

Chairman Wontumi was very influential during NPP’s campaign in the run-up to the 2016 elections, gracing several radio stations to drum home the party’s messages and policies. The NPP’s flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo subsequently defeated incumbent John Mahama of the NDC to emerge president of Ghana.
