Chairman Wontumi has found himself in trouble over his attack on former president John Dramani Mahama’s daughter, Farida Mahama.
Wontumi had warned John Mahama to quit flaunting his daughter on social media else somebody will catch her and do something to her.
This statement seem not to have gone down well with the Concerned Women Ghana (CWG) who have condemned the “unsavoury and despicable comment”.
The group in a statement has called on authorities in the society to deal with Wontumi.
“We, by this statement, wish to bring to the attention of the President of the Republic of Ghana; H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Gender Minister; Honorable Cynthia Morrison, Social services, the National Peace Council and Church leaders, an unfortunate comment made by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako also known as Chairman Wontumi,” it read.
Wontumi has already been reported to the police by the Ashanti regional National Democratic Congress.

CHAIRMAN WONTUMI’S UNHEALTHY COMMENTS MUST BE SANCTIONED _____________________________________
We, by this statement, wish to bring to the attention of the President of the Republic of Ghana; H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Gender Minister; Honorable Cynthia Morrison, Social services, the National Peace Council and Church leaders, an unfortunate comment made by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako also known as Chairman Wontumi.
Chairman Wontumi’s anger gun is cocked once again and this time, the target is a mere child.
Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako who was speaking on Kumasi-based radio station Wontumi Radio made very unsavoury and despicable comment about a child who could be considered a minor. His comments are so shameful we do not wish to repeat it. This unfortunate comment should not be passed off as a mere political talk. The impact of Wontumi’s language is just as harmful as committing the act.
As concerned women and citizens, we have a legal obligation to notify authorities of actions that could cause serious damage to the cognitive, social and emotional development of a child. It doesn’t have to take us a long time to find the courage to alert authorities of the unhealthy behaviours of ‘powerful’ politicians.
We are hoping that the aforementioned parties will understand how important their intervention will be.
Meanwhile, anything and everything the authorities can do to bring Wontumi to his knees could make a difference.
Child Protection is everyone’s business!!!!!!
Stay safe, Covid is not gone!
