The resurfacing of Mr. Masawudu Mubarick to contest as the parliamentary candidate on the ticket of the NDC for Asawasi constituency may exert political pressure on the incumbent MP Hon Muntakar Mubarak.
He was the main contender against the latter during the 2019 primaries of the NDC but was however refused nomination forms by the party to contest against the then Minority Chief Whip.
His come-back campaign message appears venomous as he has strongly castigated the incumbent, saying since Muntakar’s 20 years stay in office as MP for the area he has done nothing monumental that should warrant his retention in office.
According to him Hon. Muntakar Mubarak has failed abysmally regarding human aspect of development.
He told the press after filing his nomination forms weeks ago at the Ashanti regional party office that though there has been some activities on infrastructural development in the area, the constituency is presently punctuated with a litany of white elephant projects under the poor leadership of the incumbent.
Mr. Masawudu attributed the cause of the foregoing to Hon. Muntakar’s lack of vision to direct projects to benefit residents.
“That is why when you comes to Asawase, you can count numerous projects that have gone wasted all because the leader does not understand the brain behind some of these interventions”.
He told the press that considering the unique opportunities Hon. Muntakar has, he should have done much for residents in the area.
“Within Greater Kumasi we have 18 constituencies and Asawase is the only seat of the NDC.
At the regional level, Asawase constituency stands supreme among the 4 NDC seats in terms of electoral votes.”
Masawudu explained that the above-mentioned advantages give Muntakar an automatic advantage to win more slots on developmental projects for the area owing to the fact that he is the only NDC MP who stands tall in the region.
“…but residents have not seen any project that is life-touching”
Mr. Masawudu Mubarick said if voted for as the parliamentary candidate in the upcoming primaries and ultimately as the MP for the area, he will use his contemporary ideas to channel every infrastructural project in a way that will benefit residents of the constituency.
