“Wontumi beginning to make Nananom very angry!” – Chiefs upset

The chiefs and elders of the Kumasi Traditional Council communicated dismay and resentment regarding the disappointment of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, to appear before them on Monday.

Chairman Wontumi had been gathered by the Chamber for supposedly offering rude comments about the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, during the screening of parliamentary applicants in Manhyia South.

Nonetheless, he didn't go to the Chamber meeting, refering to wellbeing reasons, and sent a designation drove by the NPP General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, otherwise called JFK, to argue for his benefit.

JFK cleared up for the Gathering that Director Wontumi, who had gotten back from an excursion to China, was on confirmation at an emergency clinic. He mentioned a fourteen day expansion for Chairman Wontumi to respect the greeting.

"I got a notification a brief time prior that Baffour Kantankrankyi said I ought to call him. Honestly, I called him. At the point when I did, he advised me to introduce 'my kid', the territorial executive, before the heads of the Ashanti realm. I promptly called the director to hand-off the message, and he let me know he was en route to China and that when he returns he will appear. As a result, on Thursday of last week, I contacted Nana Samaahene and informed him that the chairman had returned. As previously stated, we would like to come on Monday to fulfill your request for his presence before you so that we could discuss the issues at hand. With all due respect, yesterday while I was driving here from Accra, Nananom, my chairman called me to inform me that he was admitted to the hospital and is ill. At the point when that's what he said, I said gracious, I'm now en route to Kumasi, in the event that that is the situation, he ought to allow me to have a specialist's report, so I can introduce it to the bosses when I come here today. However, I had not received the report as the time for my meeting with the chiefs approached. What's more, I additionally chose, I wouldn't sit tight for the report before I precede Nananom. So Nananom, this is the case now." JFK modestly said.

Nonetheless, the Committee was not persuaded by JFK's clarification and requested a specialist's report to demonstrate Director Wontumi's medical issue. The committee likewise denied the 2-week ask and on second thought allowed a 7-day final offer.

A senior of the Committee furiously answered after JFK had conveyed his message, saying:

"This infection director claims he has and accordingly is on affirmation, isn't justifiable. He is healthy. He is healthy. What amount of time does it require to go to China and back? He isn't wiped out. Also, the fourteen days you are requesting, what sort of ailment is it? Is it jungle fever? Typhoid? If we do not know what is wrong with him, how are we going to assign him excuse duty? So in the event that you request fourteen days, it doesn't work! We are not kidding around here. He is starting to drive Nananom mad! We need to tell him. He has chomped too much. What does it imply that you are ill? He needs to come here for the things he has said, so we talk about the matter, and afterward we let him know everything that we need to say to him. He isn't genuinely debilitated. It is phony! He ought to provide evidence that he is indeed ill. So to us, he isn't sick, and as such he ought to come here in the following seven days!"

The Gathering, drove by Bantamahene Baffour Owusu Amankwatia VI, demanded that Director Wontumi should show up before the Committee on Friday, January 29, regardless of whether he is biting the dust.

The Chamber likewise brought Legal counselor Maurice Ampaw and the administration of Wontumi Media to make sense of why they utilized their broadcast appointment to affront the bosses during a program on Wontumi Radio and television.

The NPP assignment present promptly removed the party from the remarks by Legal counselor Ampaw and guaranteed the Gathering that it would guarantee Director Wontumi regarded the greeting.

The lack of a doctor's report and Chairman Wontumi's health-related excuse cast doubt on his sincerity and willingness to apologize to the Council.
