The verbal war on the National Democratic Congress and its 2020 flagbearer by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) may end in no time soon.
Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi has launched a fresh attack on the former President, John Dramani Mahama referring to him as a son of corrupt politician.
According to a peacefmonline.com publication, Chairman alleged that John Mahama’s late father, Emmanuel Adama Mahama took advantage of his status as a politician and a Member of Parliament to enrich himself by looting the state.
He said, from a research he personally conducted, people of the West Gonja Constituency were unhappy with Mahama’s father and wished he was jailed for his involvement in corrupt deals which contributed to the under-development of the area.
“Your late father was a Member of Parliament for West Gonja constituency but did nothing to improve their lives. History has it that John Mahama fathers’ was full of himself and diverted monies meant for development of his area into personal use. Few years down the line, his son became President of Ghana and exceeds the corrupt ways of his father by 1000%,” Chairman Wontumi is quoted to have said in an interview.
“I have conducted my own research from the community and spoken to people who knew the late Emmanuel Adama Mahama very well. They all told me that he was worse and did little to help the area as MP. It is their wish that John Mahama’s father should have been jailed for taking advantage of the system during Nkrumah’s time,” he added.
Chairman Wontumi further stressed that the NDC Presidential candidate for the 2020 elections is as corrupt as his father just like his father which explains the Akan proverb which states that “the crab can never give birth to a bird”.
Apart from the Ashanti Regional NPP Chairman, there have also been several attacks on John Mahama’s personality by Bono East Regional Chairman Kwame Baffoe known as Abronye DC.
Abronye DC has on many occasions abused Mahama verbally and recently accused him of aiding former HIV/AIDS Ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah to escape arrest in Ghana by renting an apartment for her and sponsoring her to flee to Germany.
