Host of Maakye on Onua TV/FM, Blessed Godsbrain Captain Smart has said until President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo sacks Chairman Wontumi, his fight against galamsey would forever be a figment of his imagination.
Captain Smart was commenting on the President’s visit to the Ashanti Region over the increasing galamsey and other projects halted in the garden city after Onua TV/Akoma FM jointly held a Peoples’ Assembly which brought to bear several issues confronting the residents.

Captain Smart, who has mentioned Bernard Antwi Bosiako, a.k.a. Wontumi, a regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, as a kingpin in the illegal mining business said the President’s visit to discuss among other things, the increasing galamsey in the region would yield no result until Wontumi is ousted.
“There is only one media house in this country that can go to the Ashanti region and in less than a week, the president has to go there. Because the issues popping up are many. But Nana Addo, sack Wontumi before you can fight galamsey. Until you sack him, you can never fight galamsey,” he said.
On roads and infrastructure, whilst Onua TV and Akoma FM reporters relayed that some roads, specifically Santasi Apire, was in bad shape, some residents who are believed to be party faithful debunked the reports saying the road was under.construction.
