Former NDC Kumbungu MP, Ras Mubarak has called on the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to reprimand its National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi if he fails to apologise to Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, Asawase MP, Munataka Mubarak and Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu.
Sammy Gyamfi in a Facebook post had expressed unhappiness over the approval of some minister nominees of the government and fired leaders of the NDC caucus Alban Bagbin, Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak for betraying the party.
“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 Iddrissu and Hon. Muntaka Mubarak, and dozens of our own 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,” Mr Gyamfi wrote in a statement Thursday.
Reacting to this, Ras Mubarak charged the NDC hierarchy to suspend him if he fails to apologise for the ‘disrespect’.
“I call on the National Chairman if he (Sammy Gyamfi) doesn’t apologize he should be suspended to instil discipline in the party. Do you know what Bagbin has done for this 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,” Ras Mubarak was quoted by Kasapafmonline.com.
