The Ashanti Regional Chairman of New Patriotic Party (NPP)Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako has taken the Former President John Mahama to the cleaners after a social media report that Hon Eric Opoku ,the Asunarfo South Member of Parliament has been tipped for the running mate for 2020elections.
GhanaNewsPage.Com is reporting that, the Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has settled on Asunafo South Member of Parliament (MP) as his running mate for the 2020 elections.
John Mahama who has been reelected to lead the NDC has been criticised by Ghanaians, largely NPP members for failing to select a candidate.
Ghananewspage information from Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen indicates that President Mahama, barring any last minute hitches will settle on Hon Eric Opoku.
He, Kwabena Dufour, Alex Mould, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang and Prof Kwesi Botchway are said to be the people who were gunning of the post.
Speaking on this development on Ashh FM’s Boiling Point last Friday, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling party, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako commonly known as Wontumi says that Eric Opoku as a running mate for John Mahama has confirmed that NDC is interested in causing mayhem in the country .
‘ I want to tell Mahama that the appointment of Eric Opoku as running mate shows clearly that NDC doesn’t have any intelligent and competent elements to match Dr. Mahmoud Bawumia , Eric Opoku is like a ‘coronavirus’ he added
“This man Eric Opoku is being haunted by the atrocities and brutalities he meted out to the people of Ahafo when he was the Deputy Brong Ahafo Regional Minister and subsequently substantive Brong Ahafo Regional Minister cum MP.
‘I recalled that one Kwame Nyame, a farmer and an evangelist of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry, who was shot by Kwasi Adu on the 19th of July 2009 during a rampage at Sankore,
The suspect was arrested under the bed of Eric Opoku who was then the Deputy Minister of Brong Ahafo Region. These are the kind of atrocities Hon. Eric Opoku subjected the good people of Ahafo and its environs to during the NDC administration. ‘Wontumi alleged
Chairman Wontumi told sit-in host Oderfour Qwasi Kay that, Eric Opoku and Dr Bawumia is a mismatched, Eric Opoku is a ‘ coast player ‘ when it comes to running mate position.
