- Chairman Wontumi has slammed the NDC National Chairman for not being a strong and focused leader
- He asked him to learn some leadership traits from the NPP chairman, Freddie Blay
Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, has launched a verbal attack on the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Kofi Portuphy.
According to the NPP chairman, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, Mr. Portuphy has allowed himself to pushed around by the members of his party, to engage in mundane political arguments.
He said he was disappointed in the NDC chairman, and called on him to learn how to lead from the NPP National Chairman, Freddie Blay.
Reacting to the NDC’s press conference last Thursday, Chairman Wontumi spoke to the media, stating: “...well…they were busily stealing from Ghanaians so they did not see the kind of civilized and responsible opposition we gave them, especially, coming from Freddie Blay in the round up to the 2016 elections. If the NDC and Portuphy want to be taken seriously by the good people of Ghana, then they should start learning from our chairman Mr. Blay.”
In a report by Kasapa FM, the NPP chairman sadly noted that Mr. Portuphy has allowed himself to be the face of trivial political engagements, due to the pressure from his party members.
He added when the NPP was in opposition, their chairman Freddie Blay was not influenced to speak out on certain issues, that were not according to ‘his conviction’, which Wontumi says is a sign of a ‘focused, responsible and accountable’ leader.
Mr. Portuphy had claimed his party had information that suggests it was a group of ‘militant goons’ associated with the NPP who were involved in the incident which claimed a police officer's life.
However, the NPP has debunked these claims, demanding that if Portuphy has information regarding the incident, he should step forward with it to help the police in their investigations.
