Referendum: I’m sorry – Ras Mubarak pleads after party summon

Kumbungu MP Ras Mubarak

National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for Kunbungu, Ras Mubarak, has apologized for breaking ranks with the party to declare support for the ‘Yes’ campaigners in the forthcoming referendum.

Following pressure and a petition to sanction him, Mubarak beat a U-turn Tuesday to be in line with the decision of the Umbrella Family for a ‘No vote’ come December 17, 2019.

The party, however, summoned him and based on the outcome, the lawmaker has made a public apology.

“I wish to convey my regrets and sincere apologies to the leadership and membership of the great Akatamanso family who may have been hurt by my previously held position in respect of the upcoming referendum on article 55 (3) of the constitution of Ghana.

*I was invited to a meeting at the party national headquarters to discuss my media interviews on the above mentioned issue.

“The meeting was warm, cordial and candid; and I wish to thank the National Chairman and General Secretary of the party for the opportunity to discuss the matter.

“After a detailed discussion of the merits of the issues with leadership, I am convinced that a “NO” vote in this referendum on the current amendment is the way to go.

“The NDC is a party I grew up in and hold so dear to my heart. Once again, I offer my unreserved apology,” the MP said in a statement copied to Daily Mail GH late Tuesday evening.
