Rejoinder: Assembly misuses GHC9,100 DACF funds on pump action guns

The office of Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency, Hon Mubarak Muntaka had taken notice of the above mentioned publications on various online news portals and some radio stations.

For the avoidance of doubt and setting the record straight, the above caption of the publication and broadcast is not only superfluous but perfidious as well. If we all will recall in 2015 when crime rate within Asokore Mampong reached its highest crescendo with the menace of a vigilante group affectionately called "Anraba Gari", the Assembly decided to purchase 2 pump Action gun for the official use of the Municipal Chief Executive and the Member of Parliament for their protection.

In February this year, there was a high sophisticated robbery attack at the residence of the member of Parliament at Buobai where valuable items amounting to millions of Ghana Cedis were made away with and till date the police were not able to make any arrest. This and many other cogent reasons are why it's very important for the protection of the safety of the member of Parliament.

It will also interest all to know that the former MCE Hon Nuru Hamidan had since handed over the pump action gun meant for the office of the Municipal Chief Executive to the newly appointed MCE, Hon Alidu Seidu and he's currently using it for his protection.

It is therefore instructive to note that Hon Mubarak Muntaka will also hand over the gun the very day he ceases to be the Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency. Thank you.
