The defunct pro ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) vigilante group, Delta Force has accused Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong and Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako also known as Chairman Wontumi of using them to win power and dumping them afterward.
According to the Chairman of the group in the Ashanti Region, Frank Asante, the two bigwigs together with the Kumasi Mayor Hon. Osei Assibey during the 2016 general elections campaign assured them several times that once they worked hard to bring the party to power, whatever request they make will be granted.
He said sadly after they provided security for the party before and after the elections sometimes at the peril of their lives, the big promises made them is yet to be fulfilled.
Frank Asante told Kasapa FM News, Obaasima Serwaa Akoto that three years after the party came to power, they are yet to hear a word from Chairman Wontumi, Ken Agyapong, and the KMA boss.
While campaigning in opposition Hon. Ken Agyapong, Chairman Wontumi, and the KMA Boss, Osei Assibey made big promises to us and urged us to work hard for the party with our strength and that once we come to power our efforts will be rewarded by giving us anything we request for. But after we toiled for this party to come to power these big men have failed us, not even a single word has been told to us members of the defunct Delta Force group. We remain at home jobless. Our overall leader hasn’t been given a job, me as the Chairman has no job since the party came to power. Our boys know that once we the leaders have jobs to do, they’ll also be employed. But we have been used and dumped by our leaders and it’s so painful.”
Delta Force group was disbanded as a sign of respect to the call by President Akufo Addo for the two leading political parties the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) and the National Democratic Congress(NDC) to disband all vigilante groups affiliated to them.
