Chairman Wontumi Made $1 Million A Day From Mining – chairman wontumi net worth

According to, NPP’s man of steel, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, aka Chairman Wontumi has publicly named the amount of money he was making in mining and the rift between him and ex President Mahama.

Chairman appeared on Paul Adom Otchere’s ” Good Evening Ghana ” where he disclosed that he was making $1 million a day from his mining company until the Mahama led administration burnt down his company.

Hansol Company Ltd, owened by Wontumi was a registered and licensed company. From his own words, his company was one of the successful and top mining companies in the Western region.

Chairman Wontumi revealed that former President John Dramani Mahama’s political witch-hunting sent his business to the ground when he refused to ditch the NPP for the NDC. He recounted when he was invited my the former president to deliberate on issues surrounding his mining activities because other officials who were then in power were stirring up plans to collapse his ( Wontumi’s ) company.

At the meeting, Mahama realised how open minded Chairman is, then asked him to join the NDC to support him with his wealth after showing him h is company’s license.

“I told him mining is not a bad thing. Every country needs mining, if you have resources, you need it to develop your…but you have to regularize it or make good policy for it. But to me, I have a legitimate license they’ve signed for me. This is my license, so he sees everything true”

He stated emphatically that after he had refused to ditch the NPP for NDC, he became an enemy to the President. It was not long that his company was marauded by an inter-ministerial task force made up of security personnel on suspicion that his company had brought in some Chinese nationals to engage in illegal mining activities.

The task force took with them, some valuables including money, gold and some other equipment which belonged to chairman and burnt the company to the ground.

Wontumi after the exercise, accused the government which was headed by the immediate past President, John Dramani Mahama, of deliberately targeting his business and destroying it.

Out of the 500 excavators on the site, only 200 were left after the heart wrenching attack on him. He resorted to court for a redress which reports say attracted a judgement debt worth US$1billion.
