The Ashanti regional Chairman for the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP),Mr.Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi, has commended the Electoral Commission(EC) for peaceful conduct of the just ended Limited Registration exercise for Ghanaians who had attained 18 years and above.
Chairman Wontumi as he is affectionately called in the political space said “we all agree that the limited voters’ registration exercise has so far been largely
peaceful and calm. This is pleasantly unusual, because these exercises are
usually characterized by violence and thuggery. We should therefore commend
the Electoral Commission, the good people of Ghana, the CSOs and the other
stakeholders for conducting themselves properly.

The Ashanti Regional Chairman of NPP made the commendation at a press conference held at Millennium Plaza, Asokwa in Kumasi on Wenesday,4th October,2023.
Chairman Wontumi who was fully supported by other regional executives of the Party at the press conference revealed that NPP went into the registration exercise with a superior strategy, and it worked to their expectation.
According to him, “Indeed, winning an election isn’t about noise- making
and violence, but your ability to ensure that your people register in their numbers.
That is exactly what we did. As we speak, we have over 92% of the album being
NPP. Some may ask, how did it happen? We achieved it by assigning targets to
the various constituencies and officers, and ensuring that they were indeed
committed to the agenda”, he explained.Chairman Wontumi also commended the regional and constituency officers for helping them to achieve their target. Adding that “Let me seize this opportunity to state it categorically clear without mincing words that, the Ashanti Region NPP won’t attack any presidential aspirant, but any non-NPP member who attempts to bring the name and image of the party into disrepute would not be spared. This is a caution to all of us”.
