NPP’s Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi is still in the news for his bold plan to purchase Chelsea FC of London.
The maverick politician has earned the spotlight in ‘The Sun,’ a reputable media outlet in the United Kingdom, as his name spreads far and wide for his bold claim, which has been dismissed by the majority of Ghanaians as a gimmick.
Here’s how they made the report;
“A Ghanaian gold mine owner has sensationally revealed his wild plan to buy Chelsea – and then sign Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Bernard Antwi Boasiako declared his audacious intention to make a bid for the Blues. Current owner Roman Abramovich put the club up for sale in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
And now politician, gold guru and radio station boss Boasiako has thrown his hat into the ring. And the 45-year-old boldly announced himself unfazed at the likely £3billion asking price for the Champions League winners.
Boasiako’s wealth is unknown but figures in his homeland suggest it could be up to £76million. Known as Chairman Wontumi back home, he said he will try to buy Ronaldo and Messi if he somehow wins control of the Blues.
The New Patriotic Party regional chairman also said he would seek to get rid of the record signing and sign a Real Madrid star.”
