“NPP should forget breaking the 8 after voting Wontumi as Ashanti Regional chairman — Afia Schwar

Controversial social media personality, Afia Schwarzenegger has reacted after her preferred candidate Chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah could not unseat Bernard Antwi Biasiako aka Chairman Wontumi as Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party.

In a video sighted online, the mother of twins could be seen explaining why she campaigned against Chairman Wontumi even though he won.

According to her, NPP needs a regional Chairman who is educated, unlike Wontumi who can not communicate in English.

Afia said she is disappointed in the delegates for voting against her preferred candidate.

Chairman Wontumi first won the position in 2014 and was re-elected in 2018. Before this, he was the constituency chairman for Bosomtwe.

He polled 464 votes against that of his closest contender, Chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah (COKA), who got 306 votes and entered the chairmanship race, having served as constituency chairman for Afigya Kwabre South for close to 20 years.

In this year’s election, his contenders were Asare Bediako, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, Owusu Aduomi and Oheneba Kofi Adum Bawuah.

Robert Asare Bediako, a former Asokwa Constituency Chairman who entered the contest for the second time, came third with 20 votes. In his first attempt in 2018, he pulled out of the race at the last minute to allow Wontumi to go unopposed.

Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, a former Member of Parliament for Ejisu, who lost a re-election bid as MP in 2019, losing to Dr John Kumah, was entering the regional contest for the first time and came fourth with nine votes.
