New Patriotic Party(NPP) Ashanti Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi Bosiako popular known as Chairman Wontumi has stated categorically that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s biggest achievement as a politician is discovering Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
He stated that not even Free Senior High School and other flagship project by NPP can be compared to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Controversial Chairman Wontumi made this statement on his own Kumasi-based Wontumi Radio, he said, “I met the President and I asked him, do you know your biggest achievement? The President then put a question to me that what do I think. I told him, your biggest achievement is not one district, one factory and the other projects, it is your discovery of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia. You gave the people of Ghana an intelligent man and a man who is not corrupt.”
Already most people have interpreted Chairman Wontumi’s statement to be an endorsement of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as a potential presidential candidate for NPP in 2024. There is a controversy between who should lead NPP in 2024 after Akufo-Addo, Bawumia and Alan Kyerematen have all been tipped for the position.
Wontumi also added additional praises to the Vice President, “Bawumia who is the digital man is credited with a number of great initiatives including mobile money interoperability and other great initiatives. He is also the economics messiah so no one can beat him..”
