The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Andrews Nana Akwasi has fired a shot at the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi on clams that embattled National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has bought a Range Rover car for Seidu Mba.
Mr. Seidu Yakubu Mba is one of the eight persons arrested in connection with the kidnapped Canadian women in Kumasi who have since been rescued and reunited with their families.
On Kumasi-based Nhyira Fm he said “Wontumi is a liar and let him stop quoting verses from the Bible anytime he speaks”
Moments after the news of the arrest of Seidu Yakubu Mba by security operatives in a rescue exercise of the Canadian nationals on Wednesday, social media was awash with claims that the suspect is a known NPP supporter and a member of the party’s militia group, Delta Force. But the group has since denied him in a statement released last Thursday.
The NPP has also made a series of claims alleging that the suspect is an NDC member and have cited instances where he’s reported to have engaged in incidents at the NDC regional office.
However, in separate interviews, Chairman Wontumi insisted that the suspect Seidu Mba is a well-known NDC supporter who always welcomes ex-President Mahama whenever the latter visits Kumasi.
But the leadership of the NDC both national and regional levels have described those allegations as lies and desperate attempt by the governing NPP to cover bad deeds of their party foot soldiers.
