Election 2020: Ras Mubarak booted out of Parliament

Member of Parliament (MP) Kumbungu Constituency in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak after just a term will no longer be in parliament after being defeated at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primary.

The loudmouth lawmaker was giving the spanking of his life by a Lecturer with the University for Development Studies (UDS), Dr. Hamza Adam who polled 401 as against the incumbent’s 273 and 81 votes for the third candidate Baba Abdulai.

Ras Mubarak who was optimistic of carrying the day has been left disappointed together with his supporters after results declared signaled his obituary.

It would be recalled that in March last year, Abubakari Issahaka, National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kumbungu Constituency Chairman told Tamale-based North Star radio that they blame themselves for paving the way for Ras Mubarak to become the Member of Parliament (MP) who has turned around to tag them as illiterates, a comment the Chairman described as very insulting.

According to him, they accept their faults but have vowed to ensure that this mistake does not repeat itself ever in the history of the constituency as far as he remains the Chairman recounting how Ras Mubarak was barely known to the constituency and efforts they made to ensure he became an MP.

“We blame ourselves for allowing him to insult us as ignorant and illiterates. If we sacked him when he came these insults would not have been thrown at us now. Since he is more enlightened than us, we take it in good faith and will respond accordingly”, he told the host in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
