On dawuro maakye today (july 6, 2018), two panelists were hosted by Okyeremaba Antwi Boasiako who then posed the question about NPP election and other matters arising; Patrick Kwame Atuah (Former Tein President KSTU) expressed his disappointments at the issue at hand and stated:


"i was very sad yesterday when i heard Chairman Wontumi endorsing some candidates for the NPP election that commences tomorrow without mentioning Henry Nana Boakye's name,the one who is contesting on behalf of the ashanti region and it was not the right place to say that.

Just 18 months in office their acting chairman used $11 million dolars to buy buses to fund the NPP party. Where did  he get that amount of money from? Freddie Blay is lying about buying those cars with his own money.

He took government money to fund his campaign by donating to the NPP:" We were here when the vice President made a hold lot of noise about the amount Mahama used to build the Regional hospital and that he can build that Regional hospital with just 1 million dollars which meant that 11 million dolars Freddie Blay used to buy 275 buses could have be used to build 11 Regional hospitals according to what the Vice Presdent said when they assumed office. That $11 million dollars could have been used to buy ambulances.Am saying all this because i Know that money was not his  but from government coffers".George Agyei (Asante Regional Communications Member) also said Freddy Blay's timing was wrong. if he had wanted to assist the NPP party with buses he should have done that earlier and not now.

We are not going to vote based on those gifts but loyal, intelligent and hardworking persons in the party and we the youth know who we want to vote for.The fact that Chairman wontumi endorsed some people doesn't mean we are not united each and everyone has a candidate he or she supports but the place at which that incident occured was wrong no doubt about that, so i agree with my friend here".
