The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sam Pyne is peeved with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for the Asawase Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak for leading the charge in parliament on Tuesday February 5, 2019 for the Minority to boycott the investiture of the Member of parliament for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, Lydia Seyram Alhassan.

According to him, the Minority chief whip is the beneficiary of the bloodiest by-election in the history of the country.

He recalled how the by-election in the Asawase Constituency in 2005, which gave birth to the political career of Mr. Muntaka was fraught with violence of magnanimous proportions.

“This same Muntaka was the one that announced that they were boycotting the investiture. We all remember Asawase in 2005, the bloodiest by-election ever in the history of Ghana. NDC cars were heavily loaded with guns, the police were there and the NPP cars were also loaded with guns. The high numbers of people that sustained various degrees of injuries and that was the bloodiest. Today he is still a Member of Parliament and what does he call himself? And you will lead such an onslaught and for political expediency, people were applauding them” he said.

Mr. Pyne said the action by the Minority NDC was a slap in the face of all widows and all women in politics, adding that they must be condemned in no uncertain terms for their actions.
