Chairman Wontumi In Hot Water Over Unsavoury Comments About Mahama’s Daughter

Bernard Antwi Bosiako, alias Chairman Wontumi, has found himself in a dilemma as the Concerned Women Ghana (CWG), has condemned what they call an “unsavoury and despicable comment” he made concerning former president John Mahama’s daughter and has urged authorities to take action.

A few days ago the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Chairman Wontumi, called out John Mahama for using his young daughter Farida to solicit public sympathy in a bid to secure more votes in the forthcoming 2020 election.

In usual Chairman Wontumi fashion, he made a few wild statements while speaking on his Wontumi TV, including that if Mahama didn’t stop flaunting his daughter, “somebody would catch her and do something to her”, a statement the CWG has called for an investigation into.

“This unfortunate comment should not be passed off as a mere political talk. The impact of Wontumi’s language is just as harmful as committing the act,” the CWG said in a statement.

The Ashanti Regional branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has lodged a complaint with the police, but the CWG thinks more could be done.

“We, by this statement, wish to bring to the attention of the President of the Republic of Ghana; H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Gender Minister; Honorable Cynthia Morrison, Social services, the National Peace Council and Church leaders, an unfortunate comment made by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi,” it said.

CHAIRMAN WONTUMI’S UNHEALTHY COMMENTS MUST BE SANCTIONED _____________________________________

We, by this statement, wish to bring to the attention of the President of the Republic of Ghana; H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Gender Minister; Honorable Cynthia Morrison, Social services, the National Peace Council and Church leaders, an unfortunate comment made by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi.

Chairman Wontumi’s anger gun is cocked once again and this time, the target is a mere child.

Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako who was speaking on Kumasi-based radio station Wontumi Radio made a very unsavoury and despicable comment about a child who could be considered a minor. His comments are so shameful we do not wish to repeat it. This unfortunate comment should not be passed off as a mere political talk. The impact of Wontumi’s language is just as harmful as committing the act.

As concerned women and citizens, we have a legal obligation to notify authorities of actions that could cause serious damage to the cognitive, social and emotional development of a child. It doesn’t have to take us a long time to find the courage to alert authorities of the unhealthy behaviours of ‘powerful’ politicians.

We are hoping that the aforementioned parties will understand how important their intervention will be.

Meanwhile, anything and everything the authorities can do to bring Wontumi to his knees could make a difference.

Child Protection is everyone’s business!!!!!!

Stay safe, Covid is not gone!
