Select executives made up of firebrands of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are in the Ashanti region and by extension Kumawu to rally faithful of the party and see to the proper organization of the NDC ahead of the by-election
The party has however warned it will not tolerate any intimidation from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and especially any recalcitrant group of the Ashanti Regional Antwi Boasiako aka Wuntomi.
The warning was issued by NDC Deputy General Secretary Mustapha Foyo Gbande.
“No need for violence in Kumawu, the former MP Basoah was like a brother and very gentle to all, no need for any mayhem. The NPP has a responsibility to come clean in this election, but if they bring the principle of Wontumi for which he does in this Ashanti region at the place we will not agree and let me repeat we will not agree”, he warned
“We are paying a working visit to our party; our party includes Kumawu and all other constituencies. The NDC can work better with Ashantis, we are coming here because the Ashanti region is an important region to us coming back into power. We have about six national executives here in the region, this region is for our father Otumfuo and here, nobody will intimidate anyone and NPP can’t intimidate us” he said.
