The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has named the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, as the most abusive individual on radio.

In its August report on language monitoring on radio, the Regional Chairman was closely followed by the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, and host of Power FM’s Inside Politics, Mugabe Maase.
