National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Henry Nana Boakye has been given a 24-hour ultimatum to come out with the truth about the disregard and disparaging comments said by the Ashanti Regional chairman on the NPP Bernard Antwi Boasiako against the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Failure to do so or apologise to Asanteman by the close of Thursday, January 18, 2024, the Manhyia South constituency chairman for the NPP, Richard Mensah Agyei Ofori Atta, threatened that he will expose the hidden agenda of Henry Nana Boakye.
In a press release dated Thursday, January 18, 2024, issued, signed by Richard Mensah Agyei Ofori Atta, also known as Tom Tom and copied to otecfmghana.com, Nana B lied to the public that Chairman Wontumi did not acted in a manner that shows disrespect to the Asantehene during the vetting of Parliamentary Aspirants in the Ashanti Region.
Tom Tom, according to the release said he was part of the vetting committee at Dr. Bawumia campaign office at Asokwa when the unfortunate incident happened on January 3, 2024, and as such described Nana b statements as “blatant liar.”
I have become aware of a statement issued by the National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as ‘Nana B’, on an incident that took place during the party’s vetting of Parliamentary Aspirants in the Ashanti Region, held at the Dr. Bawumia campaign office at Asokwa, Kumasi, on January 3rd, 2024.
In his statement, Nana B described as false, media reports which suggest that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as ‘Chairman Wontumi,’ acted in a manner that shows disrespect to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, during the vetting.
Nana B went ahead to state: “As the Chairman of the Vetting Committee, I can recall a little misunderstanding that ensued between the Regional Chairman and the Manhyia South Constituency Organizer in which I was committed in resolving. However, in my capacity as the Chairman for the committee, I did not witness any such conduct by the Regional Chairman that sought to disparage or lower the authority of our revered and highly respected King during the conduct of our work as a Committee.”
Having carefully read Nana B’s statement, which is full of blatant lies, I am calling on him to retract and apologize by close of today, Thursday, January 18, 2024, else I will come out with the full facts tomorrow, Friday, January 19, 2024.
I must add that we were about 40 people in the vetting room and the facts cannot be hidden.
