Supporters of the disqualified parliamentary aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Asawase Constituency, Massawudu Mubarick, have asked the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah and other executives in the constituency to prepare for more demonstrations.
“This is not the end; they have not seen anything yet,” Nana Wiafe, one of the supporters said in an interview on Neat FM.
Nana Wiafe who is a member of the Concerned NDC Youth of Asawase threatened fire until the right thing is done.
According to him, “Asiedu Nektiah and others should understand that we also have our rules that we work with. For now, we have taken over the party office . . . Asiedu Nketia is nobody for us; if he sees himself as an important person, we don’t. Asiedu Nketiah and some other people are running their own business with the party. We want democracy and that was why we were calling for an election but since that is not what they want, we will make sure NDC Asawase constituency boils until the right thing is done. We will make sure every week something different happens.”
Supporters of Massawudu on Thursday went on rampage in the constituency, setting car tyres on fire and locking an already locked constituency office.
This was to register their displeasure over the disqualification of their candidate.
The party disqualified Mr. Mubarick from contesting the Asawase Constituency Parliamentary Primaries for the 2020 elections.
The incumbent Member of Parliament for the constituency, Muntaka Mubarak is set to go unopposed after Massawudu was disqualified from contesting.
According to a statement issued by the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, on September 3, 2019, the decision to disqualify Massawudu followed the acceptance of the report of the Committee for Settlement of Outstanding Disputes (the Doe Adjaho) Committee at a Functional Executive Committee sitting.
