The Manhyia Palace has summoned the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi for allegedly challenging the authorities of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

The issue happened when a sitting of the NPP parliamentary primaries vetting committee that happened last week where Chairman Wontumi, without provocation, reportedly declared his intentions to challenge the Asantehene, stating, “I have built my own kingdom, I have my own police and military, and I will speak my mind to Otumfuo if I disagree on an issue with him.”

In addition to that , Kokosohene, Nana Kwaku Duah who was also  at the meeting, expressed his unhappiness with Wontumi’s statements, reportedly stating, “For you to even say those words in my presence is unacceptable, and I’m not happy about your weird and disrespectful behaviour.”

In reply  to the alleged challenge to the Asantehene’s authority, the Asanteman Traditional Council has purportedly written to the General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Frimpong Kodua.

The letter demands  to facilitate Chairman Wontumi’s appearance at the Manhyia Palace to explain his comments and address the perceived disrespect towards Otumfuo.
