Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as “Chairman Wontumi” is the latest to tag investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas as “corrupt”.
In a video teaser posted by Multimedia’s social media handle, Adom TV, Mr Wontumi is seen accusing Anas of doctoring interviews he has with people.
According to him, he once pulled a gun on Anas due to his corrupt nature of investigating people, adding that “Anas is more corrupt than the “saviour” people perceive him to be”.
The politician further alleged that, Anas works for former president Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama.
“I don’t know Anas in NPP; I know Anas to be a Mahama boy. He works for the NDC. He is a very corrupt guy and very soon I will come out. I once pulled a gun on him”, he said.
“If you take his tapes to the lab, you can detect they have been cut and some taken out; that is what will make you know he is a liar”, he said.
Wontumi appears to be singing from the same hymn book as his party colleague, Ken Agyapong who has been on a crusade to “expose” the journalist.
Mr Agyapong yesterday revealed on Adom FM’s morning show, “Dwaso Nsem” that Anas had tried to “blackmail” Chairman Wontumi a number of times but failed.
“Who wanted to set up chairman Wontumi; he tried setting Wontumi up with some women”, Mr Agyapong asserted.
The full interview on Adom TV’s Badwam show will be aired today Tuesday, June 5, at 7:30 am.
