Chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, NPP Constituency Chairman for Afigya Kwabre South in the Ashanti Region has been tipped to replace Chairman Antwi Boasiako ( Wontumi) as the Ashanti Regional NPP Chairman for election 2024.
The call comes upon the hard work, dedication and Respect the constituency chairman has shown over the years at the constituency level.
Delegates across the region are yearning for the constituency chairman to lead the party at the regional level.
According to them ,if NPP wants to break the 8 then is only chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah who can lead them in breaking that record.
“We can only break the eight with Chairman Kwaku Appiah because he is United, dedicated and very selfless”.This was stated in a statement copied to the Punch Newspaper last Tuesday.
According to the statement, chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah has done it in the constituency level and is ready to serve at the Regional level.
“Chairman Kwaku Appiah is a visionary leader, very innovative and knows the grassroot.
We want grassroot person to lead NPP in the region.”It further indicated .
“Most of our leaders in the region are power drunk and they have no respect for us any longer since they think they have enjoyed to the fullest since we won power in 2016 so is about time we need to change them for a better future because we are determined to maintain power in 2024.”It was again stated in the release.
About five names have popped up for the Ashanti Regional chairmanship.
The ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) will this year go to polls to elect new National and Regional Executives.
The five are the incumbent Chairman; Bernard Antwi-Boasiako who is known popularly as Chairman Wontumi, Chairman for Afigya Kwabre South constituency; Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, Mr. Borris Baidoo; an entrepreneur, Kwabena Owusu Aduomi; Former MP for Ejisu and a former MP for Nhyiaeso.
The Punch’s investigation reveals that things are not looking good for the incumbent; Bernard Antwi-Boasiako as the party hierarchy is displeased with his performance so far.
One of the five; Odeneho Kwaku Appiah seem to be enjoying favourable feedback from the rank and file of the party and is (all things being equal) tipped to topple the incumbent.
Our polls suggest he might garner over 60 percent of the total valid votes.
The disturbing issue is that most of the people we spoke to are constituency executives, they had serious issues with the current leadership.
Already, Mr Kwaku Appiah has received several endorsements from key grassroots members, party executives and Members of Parliament in the region.
Several delegates have reportedly suggested that he deserves to lead the party in the region, taking into account his major contributions to the NPP’s electoral fortunes in his constituency and region under his leadership as chairman.
Odeneho Kwaku Appiah has served as a polling staion executive and government appointee at the Bekwai District Assembly (KMA). He also served as the regional financial secretary during F.F Anto’s chairmanship, and currently the constituency chairman in the Afigya Kwabre South constituency of the Ashanti Region. He was recently retained when members of the association of Chairmen met to elect new executives to steer the affairs of the association in February 2021.
He is said to have held other positions in the party.
