The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, has promised to win all the parliamentary seats in the region for his party in the 2020 election.
Speaking at the New Patriotic Party’s extraordinary conference on Sunday at the Heroes Park in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, Wontumi vowed that by the end of his tenure as the regional chairman, the main opposition National Democratic Congress would have no parliamentary seat in the region.
“Before I end my tenure as a regional chairman of this party, every single parliamentary seat in the Ashanti region will be in the hands of the great NPP party in Ashanti…" he said.
His comments also suggest that he will run for re-election as the regional chairman.
It had been reported that he was considering running for the National Chairmanship position of the party.
He led the NPP in the region to win 44 parliamentary seats out of 47 seats.
