    Mahama asked me to support him in 2013 with my money, intelligence; I declined” – Wontumi

    The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Bernard Anwti Boasiako (Chairman Wontumi), has said President John Mahama, in 2013, invited him over for a meeting in Tamale at which the then-President asked that he support him and the National Democratic Congress with his money and smartness.

    Wontumi, however, said he rejected Mr Mahama’s proposal because being a member of the NPP, to him, was like being an adherent of a religious sect.

    Chairman Wontumi told Paul Adom-Otchere on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana programme on Thursday, 6 February 2020 that during his meeting with Mr Mahama, “President Mahama said to me that: ‘Young man, you are too intelligent and, so, come to the NDC to support me’”.

    According to Mr Wontumi, it was “normal for a politician to tell a businessman to say: ‘Come and support me’ but I said to him that: ‘I see politics as a religion and given the place I come from, even if you have money and power and you don’t belong to NPP, it is very dangerous, so, I told him, ‘Mr President, I don’t want to’”.

    “I will never lie and Mahama knows this”, he told Paul Adom-Otchere, adding: “I went there with the now-Bosomtwi NPP Chairman at the Regional Minister’s residence.
