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

Published

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

Mahama’s Comment That You Can’t Criticise Till You Become President Was The Truth – Oboy Siki

Popular Kumawood actor, Oboy Siki has stated that President Akufo-Addo and his Vice, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia have failed to live up to expectations.

According to him, their incompetency has confirmed former President John Dramani Mahama’s comment that you cannot criticize a president till you get the opportunity to hold the office.

Ahead of the 2016 polls, Mr Mahama after being called ‘incompetents’ severally by Dr Bawumia had said that then-candidate Akufo-Addo and Bawumia cannot call him incompetent when they’ve not had a taste of the presidency before.

Oboy Siki believes that over five years of taking over power, President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia have failed to deliver as Ghanaians expected, and even fellow NPP members are disappointed in them.

‘Prez Akufo Addo and Bawumia Have A PhD In Lies And Deceit’ – NDC national organizer

Joshua Hamidu Akamba, national organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has claimed that President Akufo Addo and Bawumia are experts at deceiving Ghanaians.
According to Akamba, his description of Ghana’s first and second gentlemen as dishonest men is appropriate given the NPP government’s failure to deliver on its promises to the electorate.

His remarks follow the President’s refund of GH238,000 to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.

The funds represent his salary increase as a result of the recommendations of the Presidential Emoluments Committee, which is chaired by Prof. Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu.

Following the constant lies of Ghana’s incumbent president and his right-hand man, Bawumia, Joshua Akamba made the above-mentioned assertion in an interview on Accra-based Neat FM.

They are “specialists in deception and lies.”

“How long did he [President Nana Addo] take to refund that money? Was it [Money] not showing up in his account?” he inquired.

Kwame Apenteng, a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) communications team, has questioned former President John Dramani Mahama’s sanity following his do or die comment.

 

Mr Mahama, he claims, has been in a bad mood since his defeat in the 2020 elections.

He stated on Happy FM that Mahama is not known to be a violent man, but his recent do-or-die remark suggests he’s had a mental breakdown.

He praised Kwabena Duffuor of the NDC for standing up to Mahama and criticizing his remark.

“I am grateful to Kwabena Duffour for doing that. I’m glad he stated that now is the time for peace and cooperation, not violence and division. Leadership is not about ego or even Election Day, but about putting Ghanaians’ health, prosperity, and safety first every day, all year. Our children are hungry, and our people are in need; instead of fighting, let us work together for the betterment of all.”
