The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Kwame Zu has sacked his female Personal Assistant after she sold nomination forms to supporters of one Mabarick Masawudu.
Masawudu is seeking to contest the sitting Member of Parliament (MP), in the party’s internal elections.
Kwame Zu, in an interview on Fox FM said the assistant had no right to sell the nomination forms and wondered how she managed to get a receipt for the buyers since all receipts were in his custody.
This comes after the official statement from the party said, the incumbent MP for Asawase, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak will not face any competition in the forthcoming NDC constituency primary as it emerged, and he is the only person to have picked his form.
Some youth calling themselves the Concerned NDC Youth in the Asawase Constituency who also happen to be supporters of Masawudu say the constituency executives of the party were deliberately trying to frustrate their candidate from contesting the incumbent MP.
They say they will do everything possible to ensure that Masawudu is given the chance at a fair contest. They believe there are many people who will want to see the exit of the incumbent MP.
