The Deputy Ashanti Regional Secretary of NDC Mathew Kojo Njourkone has cautioned NPP’s Chairman Wontumi to stop spewing ignorance to the public since he can never ban Mr John Dramani Mahama from coming to Kumasi.
He noted that no body has appointed Wontumi “Manhyia PRO” and he must also know that he can’t decide for “our revered Manhyia.
The deputy Secretary was responding to the Ashanti Regional NPP chairman’s comments he made recently that he has banned Mr. John Mahama from entering Kumasi as base on the statement which came out from Mr. Mahama’s office against Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
The deputy Secretary said “Wontumi speaks as if he is protecting Manhyia but ends up denigrating our revered Royal Family”.
He emphasized that “If you say to the public what you should not say, it doesn’t mean you are courageous, perhaps you are ignorant.”
Constitutionally or traditionally, Wontumi does not have the locus to ban anyone from coming to Kumasi.
“The verbosity of Wontumi has exposed his ignorance and leaves people to wander whether he is semi literate.” The deputy secretary wailed.
He further stated that “Wontumi has always says he has banned Mr Mahama from entering Kumasi however, he comes in without hindrances.”
He maintained that Wontumi makes ridiculous mentions all the time to divert public attention from burning issues of corruption and other failures of the NPP.
As a result he (Wontumi) should stop the empty threats he is breeding otherwise he will meet him squarely.
