Ras Mubarak, Former Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, has called on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to suspend Sammy Gyamfi if he fails to apologize to the leadership of the party.
This follows after the National Communications Officer of the NDC accused the Speaker of Parliament, Haruna Iddris, Muntaka Mubarak, and others of betraying the party by voting to approve all Akuffo Addo’s appointees for ministerial portfolios contrary to the party’s agreement.
Kan Dapaah, Minister for National Security, Dominic Ntiwul for Defense, and Ambrose Dery for Interior were supposed to be voted against according to a decision made by the leadership of the party for their alleged role in the Ayawaso by-election violence and the shootings that occurred during the 2020 elections.
Reacting to the development, Sammy Gyamfi lambasted the above-mentioned NDC leaders for betraying the NDC.
“Comrades, the betrayal we have suffered in the hands of the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin, the leadership of our Parliamentary group, particularly Hon. Haruna Iddrisu and Hon. Muntaka Mubarak, and dozens of our own NDC MPs, is what strengthens me to work hard for the great NDC to regain power.
They brazenly defied the leadership of the party and betrayed the collective good for their selfish interest. And we, must not let them succeed in their parochial quest to destroy the NDC, the party that has done so much for them and all of us. The shame they have brought on the party will forever hang like an albatross around their necks,” Sammy Gyamfi wrote.
Ras Mubarak, however, chastised these impertinent comments made by Sammy Gyamfi and called for immediate action to be taken against him if he fails to apologize in order to help instill discipline in the party.
“I call on the National Chairman if he (Sammy Gyamfi) doesn’t apologize he should be suspended to instill discipline in the party. Do you know what Bagbin has done for the party, do you know what Haruna and Muntaka have done for this party, their sacrifices at the peril of their lives. Some of us will not sit down and watch elders of the party grossly disrespected in such a manner that Sammy Gyamfi has,” said Ras Mubarak.
