Addressing delegates on Thursday to climax his 3-day tour of the Ashanti region, Chairman Wontumi said he deeply loves the NPP and will always strive for victory in any electoral contest.
Chairman Wontumi stated that his genuine love for the party is the reason he has not been moved by the seeming distraction of some elements within the party.

Chairman Wontumi appealed to the delegates to retain him as the NPP Regional chairman to ensure the party does not get defeated in the 2020 elections.
