‘Muntaka and his assigns want to kill me’ – Asawase NDC chairman alleges

Faisal Dauda

Internal wrangling within the NDC in the Asawase Constituency is high on the agenda as top officials within the opposition party take steps to resolve all disputes in the Ashanti Region.

The crux of this uneasiness stems from recent events that rocked that constituency when the current Chairman Faisal Dauda made a bid to contest the constituency elections, a move that did not sit well with some interests within the party, including the MP and Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak.

Press Conference

Faisal Dauda on Wednesday (January 11) launched a scathing attack on his Member of Parliament and Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak, accusing him of fueling tensions in the party.

He further details how the lawmaker and his assigns incited delegates against him and planned to take his life in the heat of events.

“Two days after the elections our former chairman had a meeting at Muntaka’s house about plans to pay me back. The former chairman in a radio interview said I would never be chairman and that the delegates have regretted voting for me because the NPP was sponsoring me…

“The MP met these people and told them to plan evil against me even if it will take my soul because he thinks he cannot survive if I am still the Chairman. What did I do wrong for him to think that losing my soul will be the option for him to survive as an MP?” he quipped.

Dauda was addressing the press days after a case of assault against him was withdrawn by the police. He said Mr Muntaka’s actions could jeopardize the party’s fortunes ahead of the general elections.

“Everybody knows that honourable Muntaka has conspired against the NDC in Parliament and connived with the NPP. Everything going on in parliament indicates that Honourable Muntaka has connived with NPP so that John Mahama cannot become president, and he will continue serving his personal interest in parliament so that he will get what he wants as an individual”.


The Office of the Member of Parliament has rejected these claims. The secretary of the MP, Abdul Haq wants the matter probed.

“The news conference by the Asawase NDC chairman was nothing. It was just baseless allegations, bogus, and lacked merit. There is nothing to write home about. I would like to draw the attention of the interior minister, the IGP, and the Ghana Police Service, in general, to take him on”, Haq was quoted by citinewsroom.com as saying.


Meanwhile, a high-powered delegation is in the Region to resolve all disputes. The party’s National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia says concerns of misunderstandings that are leading to a division among party members are being resolved in a harmonious manner.

“We take Ashanti Region to be a critical region going into the 2024 elections and we can’t afford to leave any situation of conflict here unresolved.

“If part of the conflict is traceable to the contest that I was involved in, I don’t hold any grudge against anybody within the party because we practice multi-party democracy. So a member commits no offence if he throws his support behind a candidate. But the requirement of democracy is that make your choices but when the supreme choice has been made by the whole group, you all fall in line and perform your various functions.”

Asiedu Nketia also cautioned elected members of the party not to be complacent but seek support and ideas from all to make the running of the party effective in their respective areas.

“To those who have won and occupied positions, the fact that you’ve been selected today does not make you the wisest person in the party. You have to serve well and unite all members.

“There is work ahead of us. Let us unite and make sure we win convincingly in 2024″, he said.
