NDC sacks secretary over sale of forms to Muntaka’s opponent
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti region have terminated the appointment of the administrative secretary for the Regional Secretariat following her involvement in the sale of forms to an unqualified aspirant.
The Regional Secretary for the NDC in the Ashanti region, Kwame Zu told Kasapa 102.5 Fm, the Administrative Secretary has been relieved of her post immediately because she acted beyond bounds issuing out forms which is not part of her job description.
“It’s exclusively my job as the Regional Secretary to issue out forms and nobody else,” he told Anopa Kasapa sit-in host Akwasi Nsiah.
This comes after the Camp of Mubarak Masawudu, parliamentary aspirant in the Asawase Constituency were alleged to have obtained an invalid nomination form for the upcoming intraparty parliamentary race from the regional office.
Director in-charge of Operations for the Aspirant, Shafi Ibrahim told Kasapa 102.5 Fm they would still go ahead to file the so-called “invalid forms” obtained from the Regional office of the main opposition NDC, despite the Regional Executives intentions not to accept it.
“The administrative Secretary sold the forms to us at the Regional Office. We paid GHS 2000 cash to her. Kwame Zu is still denying that we’ve not picked forms because of their machinations to make Muntaka go unopposed in the primaries. But we the Asawase people will fight the plans to make the MP unopposed. We picked the forms in a legal way and we’ll push it for our candidate to contest,” he told Kasapa 102.5 FM.
Tension is brewing in the Asawase Constituency as members of the opposition National Democratic Congress are divided following the emergence of a new person who is seeking to contest, Muntaka Mubarak, the sitting Member of Parliament, in the party’s internal elections.
Supporters of the prospective aspirant accused constituency executives of frustrating processes to allow him pick up nomination forms to contest the party’s parliamentary primaries.
The supporters have served notice they will resist attempts by the executives to disqualify Mr Masawudu from contesting the Asawase MP in the upcoming parliamentary primaries.
