Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, in an interview on Wontumi tv and radio predicted that Mr. Mahama’s vote from the Volta region would reduce drastically.
Chairman Wontumi further explained that,when NDC led by John Mahama was in power made Volta region of no use.This made the formal president Jerry Rawlings opted out not to support the NDC again.
