Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak, a former minority chief whip and Member of Parliament for Asawase, claims that the NDC leadership plotted to have him removed from the Asawase constituency during the just-ended party’s primary elections on Saturday.
Muntaka claims that certain members of the party’s leadership have been plotting to remove him from office for some time.
Days after the party’s primary elections, Mohammed Muntaka told reporters that the recent change in the Minority Leadership of Parliament was a part of the larger plan to have him removed from Parliament.
“I can tell you, it was part of the strategy to get me out. No political person won’t say that wasn’t part of the strategy to get me out. Avedzi wasn’t contesting again, Haruna didn’t have any contenders and I was the only one who had a contender, so to have done that at that time was part of the strategy to get me out.
“But like I keep saying, God is not their village Chief, God doesn’t hate people because you hate them.”
Muntaka faced a stiff contest from Masawudu Mubarick for the Asawase constituency parliamentary race.
He, however, emerged victorious with 1,063 of the total valid votes cast while his main contender, Masawudu Mubarick trailed with 735 votes.
