Mosquito promises ministerial post for Muntaka …as Asawase MP launches campaign
From Sebastian R. Freiku, Kumasi
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Asawase parliamentary seat at Aboabo in Kumasi, Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak, has launched his campaign in a bid to seek re-election.
Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, who is the sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for Asawase, mentioned a number of projects he had undertaken in constituency since he was given the mandate, including the rehabilitation of roads and schools, as well as scholarships offered to brilliant but needy students.
He appealed to the electorate not to be deceived by promises by the New Patriotic Party (NPP), because the eight years of NPP administration did not offer anything good for the Zongo constituents.
The General Secretary of the NDC, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, who introduced the candidate to the constituents, announced that a Ministerial position awaited Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak in the next NDC government, and pleaded with the electorate to give him the chance to represent the party again.
He said Ghanaians should not be deceived by promises by some political parties, as they were determined to use all means to win the seat, even though they cannot offer anything good for Ghanaians.
He, therefore, entreated Ghanaians to vote for the NDC in the December elections, for a continuation of the Better Ghana Agenda.
The deputy Minister of Tourism, Mr. Baba Jamal, explained that free education was not a guarantee of quality education, and entreated Ghanaians not to be deceived by the free senior high school (SHS) promise being chanted by the NPP.
Mr. Jamal, however, gave the assurance that the NDC would offer free, quality and accessible education, when all the foundations, in terms of infrastructure, had been laid, stressing the need for the electorate to vote massively for the NDC and the parliamentary candidate.
The launching was witnessed by several NDC bigwigs, including Ghana’s Ambassador to the United States, Daniel Ohene-Agyekum, and a former Finance Minister, Mr. Kwame Peprah.
