The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, has set up a Five-Member Committee to oversee the construction of a new party office in the Ashanti Region.
The Committee will be responsible for the sourcing of funds, acquisition of land and award of construction as well as ensuring the successful execution of an ultramodern office befitting of the party.
The committee will be chaired by the Constituency Chairman for Afigya Kwabre, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, who will also act as the representative for all constituencies in the region.
It also has the Member of Parliament for Edubiase as a member who will also represent all MPs in the region.
Other members include the District Chief Executive Officer of Ahafo Ano North, Mad. Martina Appiah, who will represent all the MMDCEs, the Constituency Chairman for Adansi Fomena, Akwasi Nti.
An astute Legal Practitioner, Lawyer Adom Appiah, will act as the regional representative on the Committee.
