The immediate-past Asokore Mampong Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Alhaji Alidu Seidu has used unprintable words to describe the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Hon. Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak while responding to allegations levelled against him by the lawmaker.
According to Alhaji Seidu, ‘You Muntaka Mubarak on a local radio station in Kumasi, Zuria Fm on Friday 20th May 2022 made some ill-informed comments on misleading yourself under the guise of tarnishing my hard-earned reputation’.
‘I thought you said I stole Buobai lands when I was in office, I didn’t hear that from your nauseating interview. Or you have been hit with the truth about Buobai lands?
In as much as I have better things to do with my time, I hereby call on you to continue fooling your conscience till I finish my potent engagements now, then get at you in due course.’ the 2020 parliamentary candidate for Asawase NPP fumed.
‘Muntaka Mubarak, for your information as you know already I was appointed MCE for Asokore Mampong Municipal Assembly to serve a four-year tenure which I did with all my might and gave the people of Asokore Mampong unprecedented development till September 2021 when my successor was named by the president Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo to come and succeed me, unlike your appointment as minister for youth and sports for only ninety (90) days, as a result of gross incompetence, corruption, and abuse of office which saw your unfortunate exit.’
‘During my tenure as MCE, at no point was my name mentioned in any wrongdoing, financial embezzlement, or malfeasance in my line of duty by any statutory body sanctioned by the Constitution of this country to embark on various forms of investigations whatsoever. Be it EOCO, CHRAJ. Auditor-General, Public Procurement Authority and so on.
I, therefore, find it laughable and immature by your good self to go to the extent of saying I have an office gun with me. Are you aware of current happenings? Mr. Alidu Seidu quizzed Hon. Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak who is also the Minority Chief Whip in Parliament.
‘I, therefore, find your emptiness beyond measure by seeking to portray a picture that, the current MCE my successor Hon Kennedy Kankam has told you I still have the gun with me. You claim in your interview that you are in constant touch with him, I will therefore channel this information through you to him that the said gun is still with EOCO, not me.’ the former MCE concluded in a write-up.
