Politics Was The Last Thing I Ever Dreamed Of – Muntaka confesses

Published

on

No No I never dreamt of going into politics –

Minority Chief Whip Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka politics never crossed his mind while growing up and even as a student leader at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

“No, No! I was just a fan of politics. I have been a Class Prefect and that is the political thing. Even in KNUST, you occupy one thing. I have been a member of the SRC but politics as it is now I never envisaged it”, he responded on Citi TV’s Upside Down on how a business-minded person like him ended up in politics.

On how he was involved in politics though not on the frontline he said “I always support the political party that I believe in. I have been a polling agent, I have been a branch executive before so anytime they are doing something I support. A friend in 1996 became the candidate for NDC in a very bizarre way. They went for primaries, they elected Dr Golo and our people ganged up that as for that community they wanted a Muslim”, he revealed on the show monitored by GhanaCNN.com.

In view of his support for the party’s candidate in 1996 and in 2,000 he became known in the constituency that at any point there was a need for support the party fell on him until the demise of Dr Gibril Adamu Mohammed in 2005 paving way for a by-election.

“Now NDC has lost the 2014 elections, our MP had come to parliament and did only 39 days and died. Now they needed a candidate that the party would not spend so much on and everybody is pointing at me and I kept running away. I had finished my Masters and remember I told you I was doing very well in the cocoa licensing buying company, Adwumapa buying limited. I was the head of research monitoring and evaluation. I said no, no just get anybody I would support” he recounted

Akufo-Addo’s Chair Is Assigned To A V8 Car With A Bodyguard – Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe

Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe, an aide to former president John Dramani Mahama says he was shocked to witness President Akufo-Addo’s chair being transported in a dedicated V8 with a bodyguard and a driver.

Speaking on Metro TV he said he initially did not believe reports that the President’s chair was always transported in a dedicated vehicle thinking it was politics as usual.

However, at a funeral of a Supreme Court Justice, he personally witnessed the chair being moved in a dedicated V8 and had the shock of his life.

“The President assigns V8 to carry his chair. In fact, initially, I thought it was not true until I saw it. The first time when I saw it myself I was shocked, (it was) at the burial grounds of a retired Supreme Court judge.

“I went with John Mahama, when the president came, obviously he is the last person to come. A whole V8 is dedicated to a chair, with the driver and a guard. That whole V8 is assigned to carrying the President’s chair,” he lamented.

Akufo Addo’s Government Plans to Send Military Into Parliament to Force E-Levy on NDC MPs

Akufo Addo’s Government Plans to Send Military Into Parliament to Force E-Levy on NDC MPs

The Executive Director for the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), Mensah Thompson, has alleged that the government is bent on passing the 1.75% Electronic Levy (E-Levy) by using the military to enforce this.

He alleges that the government intends to force the hand of the law-making body to approve the controversial E-Levy, even if it means using the soldiers to physically the National Democratic Congress MPs.

“My sources at the Jubilee house contacted me again yesterday and the information is simple, they have resolved to pass the e-levy at all cost when Parliament resumes. In fact, they intend to send the military to Parliament again when the e-levy debate degenerates into a scuffle and their plan is to assault the NDC MPs if they attempt to resist like the other time,” he alleged.

Mensah Thompson made this known in a Facebook post, adding that there is the need for members of the Minority to be on guard.

He also questioned what the fear is with the government returning to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) if the need be.

“The Minority must be on their guard, the plan for the e-levy is big, they intend to pass it all cost or they have to go to the IMF and that is exactly what they don’t want.

“But the question is why are they sooo afraid of going to the IMF?, some people have said oh, they don’t like the propaganda or they don’t want to feel ashamed for taking us back to the IMF…

“Ghanaians Paa, smh!!… For how long would we understand that these guys are shameless and they don’t give a shit about your propaganda?” his post said.

It will be recalled that a year ago, when this parliament was being constituted, chaos broke out on the floor of the chamber, leading to some military men invading the House.
