The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the
opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr.
Bernard Antwi Boasiako, aka
Chairman Wontumi is displeased and disappointed with the
medium with which President John Dramani
Mahama used to offer his condolence to the
bereaved family of the late Hon. JB Danquah-
President John Dramani Mahama has expressed
“shock” over the killing of the MP for Abuakwa
North, Joseph Boakye Danquah.
The MP was killed on Tuesday dawn, February
9, 2016, at his residence at Shiashie in Accra.
The president took to Twitter to confirm the
reception of the sad news and to extend his
condolences to the family of the slain
He tweeted thus:
John Dramani Mahama ?@JDMahama
Received news of my friend Hon. J.B. Danquah
Adu’s murder with shock. My heart goes out to
his siblings, Frank, etc., his wife & children.
But Chairman Wontumi who is not happy with
the channel the President used to offer his
respect to the dead and his family said on
Okay Fm’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show that it
is traditionally wrong to sympathize with the
family in that manner.
“It does not show respect for President
Mahama to tweet to console the family of the
deceased MP. It is not traditional for him to
use that medium to sympathize with a member
who is party to one of the arms of government
which makes laws for the country…it is sad
and surprising for the President to do that,” he
“JB Danquah Adu is not an ordinary person in
the country…I expected as the
Parliamentarians did, considering events
surrounding his death, the President would
have issued a statement to offer condolence to
the bereaved family; it does not show respect
to someone who has helped the nation to pass
several laws with his wisdom, energy and
time,” he added.
He believed President John Mahama is not
showing any interest towards the safety of his
people, especially in the wake of numerous
cases of contract killings and unresolved
He, therefore, was of the view that President
Mahama should have used the death of Hon.
Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu to assure the
nation of maximum protection to offer hope of
peaceful environment for Ghanaians.
