Retract and apologise, NPP Manhyia South chairman “Tomtom” tells “Nana B”

Tomtom’s demand follows a Facebook post on Thursday 11 January 2024 by Nana B on Chairman Wontumi, the NPP Ashanti Region chairman

The Manhyia South constituency chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ofori-Atta (Tomtom), has issued a statement demanding that Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B), the national organiser of the NPP and chairman of one of the four parliamentary vetting committees, retract and apologise for a comment he made on his Facebook wall which he says are full of blatant lies.

In his Facebook post on Thursday 11 January 2024, Nana B said: “My attention has been drawn to a media reportage suggesting that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, has acted in a manner that is disrespectful to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the party’s recently held Ashanti Regional Parliamentary Vetting.

“As the Chairman of the Vetting Committee, I can recall a little misunderstanding that ensued between the Regional Chairman and the Manhyia South Constituency Organizer … which I was committed to resolving.

“However, I in my capacity as the Chairman of the committee did not witness any such conduct by the Regional Chairman that sought to disparage or lower the authority of our revered and highly respected King during the conduct of our work as a committee,” Nana Boakye’s statement on Facebook read.

However, in a sharp rebuttal, “Tomtom” indicates in his statement he has “become aware of a statement issued by the National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as ‘Nana B’, on an incident that took place during the party’s vetting of parliamentary aspirants in the Ashanti Region, held at the Dr Bawumia campaign office at Asokwa, Kumasi, on January 3 2024.

“In his statement, Nana B described as false media reports which suggest that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as ‘Chairman Wontumi’, acted in a manner that shows disrespect to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, during the vetting.

“Nana B went ahead to state: ‘As the chairman of the vetting committee, I can recall a little misunderstanding that ensued between the regional chairman and the Manhyia South constituency organiser … which I was committed to resolving,’” Tomtom’s statement reads.

“‘However, in my capacity as the chairman of the committee, I did not witness any such conduct by the regional chairman that sought to disparage or lower the authority of our revered and highly respected King during the conduct of our work as a committee.’

“Having carefully read Nana B’s statement, which is full of blatant lies, I am calling on him to retract and apologise by the close of today, Thursday 18 January 2024, or else I will come out with the full facts tomorrow, Friday 19 January 2024. I must add that there were about 40 people in the vetting room and the facts cannot be hidden,” Tomtom’s statement further says.
