The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi revealed the ‘shocking’ prices of his gold necklace and Rolex gold watch.
For a man who has claims to have more than 100 houses in the Ashanti Region, it is no doubt that he wears expensive jewelries.
“The chain is called Wontumi. The Rolex watch is diamond and gold fused together. I bought it 120,000 dollars. The chain is 200,000 USD…” he revealed to host KSM on his show.
Widely known as a tycoon in the mining industry, the politician, however, rubbished the allegations that illegal mining (galamsey) is the source of his wealth.
“It is not galamsey. I have worked in the mining sector before. I had a large scale mining organization. I am not into galamsey. I work hard as a businessman. I am not into galamsey…” he said.
