There appears to be a bad blood between the Member of Parliament for Asawase, Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak and his constituency Chairman, Faisal Dauda.
The MP is alleged to have stated on record his intention not to work with the constituency Chairman over claims of cynism and disrespect.
This has led to a division among their supporters and in turn affecting the party’s activities to unite and galvanise for votes at the constituency level.
But some concerned members of the NDC at Asawase are not enthused with current happenings in the party.
They want the national executives to intervene.
“Asawase NDC is currently divided and we can’t run away from that. It is important the functional executive committee, national executives committee and all stakeholders of the party intervene now so that we can start our reconciliation process and move together as a united force for victory in 2024,” said Umar Harris, Spokesperson for the group.
The group further assured of members resolve to intensify campaign for the 2024 elections but warned those who intend to hijack the party for their personal agenda.
“Asawase is a safe seat for the NDC. It has got nothing to do with who leads the party for the parliamentary slot. Whoever is elected in the primaries as the Parliamentary Candidate has the support of all the NDC voters in the constituency. So no individual should think without him, there is no NDC in Asawase,” one person added.
Well, the party’s plan is to iron out their differences, unite, and prepare for victory in 2024.
But that can be achieved with a united front.
