I have become aware of a statement issued by the National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as ‘Nana B’, on an incident that took place during the party’s vetting of Parliamentary Aspirants in the Ashanti Region, held at the Dr. Bawumia campaign office at Asokwa, Kumasi, on January 3rd, 2024.
In his statement, Nana B described as false, media reports which suggest that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as ‘Chairman Wontumi,’ acted in a manner that shows disrespect to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, during the vetting.
Nana B went ahead to state: “As the Chairman of the Vetting Committee, I can recall a little misunderstanding that ensued between the Regional Chairman and the Manhyia South Constituency Organizer in which I was committed in resolving. However, in my capacity as the Chairman for the committee, I did not witness any such conduct by the Regional Chairman that sought to disparage or lower the authority of our revered and highly respected King during the conduct of our work as a Committee.”
Having carefully read Nana B’s statement, which is full of blatant lies, I am calling on him to retract and apologize by close of today, Thursday, January 18, 2024, else I will come out with the full facts tomorrow, Friday, January 19, 2024.
I must add that we were about 40 people in the vetting room and the facts can not be hidden.
