NPP executives in all the six constituencies in the Adansi enclave of the Ashanti region have declared their support for the second term bid of Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the incumbent chairman of the party in the region.
At a well attended gathering at Adansi Asokwa , chairmen for the six constituencies namely; Fomena, Adansi Akrofrom, Adansi Asokwa, New Edubiase, Obuasi East and Obuasi West led their subordinates to unanimously vouch their allegiance to Wontumi in a chorus.
Chairman of the Adansi Akrofrom Constituency, Maxwell Abu who spoke on behalf of his colleagues said their action was motivated by the leadership skills, sacrifices and commitment of Wontumi to the fortunes of the party at a time it seemed impossible for the NPP to wrestle power from the NDC in the lead up to the general elections in 2016.
