All seems set, pointing to the end of the “One Man showmanship’ administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ashanti, the stronghold of the governing Party.
The second term (8 years) Regional Chairmanship of Bernard Antwi Boasiako,a.k.a Wontumi,is gradually coming to an end with the name of Odeneho Kwaku Appiah a.k.a COKA,record Chairman of the Afigya Kwabre south constituency of the NPP out and gaining grounds to take over affairs of the party in few months ahead of the party’s regional delegates congress.
Deep and strong sources from investigations conducted by The Pioneer, just after the recent Ashanti Regional Conference of the party held at Akyawkrom near Ejisu,has revealed the popularity and choice of majority of the party foot soldiers falling in favour of Odeneho Kwaku Appiah. COKA was described by many members and supporters interviewed as the right, strong, vibrant and dynamic unifier to take over Ashanti leadership mantle of NPP to help bring on board all disillusioned and aggrieved members who have lost touch with the party, especially after the 2020 elections.
”Wontumi has adopted a greedy, divide and rule tactics, sidelining people on the ground who have over the years toiled and worked hard for the advancement of the party in ASHANTI.I can even say that some media houses, including your own can newspaper, The Pioneer has been cut off totally from NPP events in Ashanti.
He even doesn’t know the significant role The Pioneer played since UP days to the formation of the Danquah-Busia club in Ashanti.”Party Executive told this reporter.”Was The Pioneer in those dark days not following the bold activities, including demonstrations spearheading by Odeneho Kwaku Appiah and the like of Victor Owusu, then secretary in Ashanti? Such bold, matured and respectable personalities who have worked on the ground with other patriotic groups must chair NPP in Ashanti.You can delve into your archives and I will be proved right that Odeneho Kwaku Appiah has best served and sacrificed a lot to lead NPP in Ashanti.”
Odeneho Kwaku Appiah has all the sterling qualities that the NPP needs in Ashanti to go through 2024 elections successfully. “Some of us haven’t lost sight of the magic role Odeheno Appiah played with the formation of dynamic youth groups, which toured the nook and crannies of Ashanti and beyond with bold and strong messages that galvanized youth support for the NPP that we are seeing today. We can’t sacrifice COKA for any other person to lead NPP in Ashanti”, a female executive stated.
“The wind of change in Ashanti is blowing in all directions in favour of Odeneho Kwaku Appiah. ’Brave, courageous and results-oriented Odeneho Appiah at 50 years plus is more matured and a relentless fighter who fought the ‘untouchables’ who were not doing the right thing for the NPP.”Both the oldies and the teeming youth of Ashanti NPP know Odeneho Kwaku Appiah for his courage and bravery in politics, especially on issues about NPP, no wonder he is still a constituency Chairman. “a media guy added.(Credit:The Pioneer)
