Constituency Chairmen in the Ashanti Region have expressed gratitude to the Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi for securing slots for them in the just-announced MMDCEs nominations.
Describing the development as a positive towards motivating the grassroots, the constituency chairmen say they are very much grateful to Chairman Wontumi for the intense lobbying which culminated in the selection of some of their members.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman reportedly led a crusade to get some competent and deserving constituency chairmen, who applied in their respective assemblies nominated for the positions.

These included Isaac Kofi Marfo of Atwima Mponua, Samuel Oduro Frimpong of Ejisu, Alex K . Sarfo-Kantanka of Juaben, Hamidu Sulemana of Sekyere Afram Plains and Abraham Kwame Antwi of Oforikrom.
The rest are Osei Adiyiah of Effiduase Asokore and Opoku Agyeman of Kwabre East.
