Pollster Ben Ephson says Benard Antwi Boasiako’s bid for a third term will not see the day of light.
He believes that a lot of things have gone wrong under the leadership of Chairman Wontumi as he is popularly known as and that will translate into electoral defeat in the party’s regional elections.
Ben Ephson indicated that the straw that broke the camel’s back was when the party was thrown out of its rented party office that made the NPP in the Ashanti Regional a subject of public ridicule by the main opposition party.
“I think Wontumi will lose. After the first term, things were not going well within the party. We are doing some work there because I am writing a book, my 7th book on elections, part of it is towards the NPP’s flgabearership.
“The party being thrown out of rented premise was the last straw, they felt very embarrassed. The NDC in the Ashanti region has been teasing them that Wontumi says he has so many thousands of cedis and you have not been able to even build. I will be very surprised if Wontumi wins.”
Meanwhile, Chairman Wontumi is optimistic that the delegates in the Ashanti Region will vote to maintain him based on his records in the region.
