Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), popularly known as Wontumi, has suggested that Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen should have considered Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s proposal for him to team up with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the NPP’s 2024 presidential race.
In Wontumi’s opinion, this alliance could have provided Alan Kyerematen with the opportunity to lead the NPP and realize his political aspirations.
Wontumi believes that Alan Kyerematen’s third-place finish in the Super Delegates Conference has diminished his chances, as the primary focus will now shift to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Kennedy Agyapong.
“Alan Kyerematen should have taken the offer presented by Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu,” he said.
To Chairman Wontumi, considering the numbers made by Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the other contestants will be better off out of the contest because if they should go ahead and contest in the November 4 election, they will be paying what he described as “Political School Fees”.
“Eight people ganged up against one person. But now, you see that Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is the most popular, and you cannot compare. Mahamudu Bawumia hasn’t contested any election before. This is the first time in his political history as compared to the contestants.
