According to him, this is new title by which he should called, after an honorary doctorate degree was awarded to him recently.

He was awarded at the African Gold Awards in Kumasi, for his immense contribution to society.

He was hailed as an inspirational fellow, whose humanitarian efforts have seen positive development in his community, as well as his apparent penchant for entrepreneurship.

Henceforth everyone must address me as Doctor Governor Chairman Wontumi because these names are my titles,” he said in an interview on Okay FM.

Chairman Wontumi said he saw himself as the governor of the Ashanti Region, as is proved time and time again with his victory in various contests.

He therefore advised persons who would want to run against him in the next NPP election for the chairman position, to sit back as he will surely win.

Meanwhile, the National Accreditation Board has warned persons awarded Honorary Doctorates to cease the use of the title in their official business.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the Executive Secretary of the NAB, Mr. Kwame Dattey stated: “You don’t have to address yourself as a doctor. If you are given an honorary degree, it is an honorary degree. Honorary is honorary — you don’t even have to put it on your curriculum vitae.

The board further warned that they were putting in place measures to legally penalize institutions without the proper accreditation who are conferring these illegal honorary doctorates.
