Chairman Wontumi was initially expected to make an appearance today, January 22, 2024, at the Manhyia Palace, however, he failed to for health reasons.

As tradition demands, it was thrown to the faction leaders of the traditional council to have their take on the matter.

All leaders who spoke furiously disagreed with the request for the two weeks since Wontumi had failed to present a medical report to validate his absence.

They further drew in lawyer Maurice Ampaw for alleged derogatory statements in support of Chairman Wontumi’s statement.

In passing final comments, the Bantamahene, Baffour Owusu Amankwaatia ordered that the Ashanti Regional NPP Chair appear before the traditional council next Monday.

He also ordered Maurice Ampaw and the Management of Wontumi Radio to be present on the same day.

In a concluding statement, the NPP General Secretary thanked the traditional authority and reiterated his reverence for the Golden Stool.

He dissociated the party from the invitation thrown to Maurice Ampaw.

The merits of the substantive issue are yet to be heard.
