The Asawase MP and the National Democratic Congress Chief Whip, Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka has raised an allegation against a Supreme Court judge saying that the judge called a female MP-elect from the NDC and persuaded her to vote against the NDC’s nominee of Speaker for the 8th Parliament.
The judge offered to provide FREE fuel for four years for the MP according the NDC Chief Whip.
Muntaka stated further: “So shamefully, a Supreme Court Judge calls a colleague lady, telling her what they will give her. She has children, they will help her take care of her children. She can take fuel from a filling station for the four years,” Muntaka alleged.
He made an assurance to the party faithfuls that the NDC caucus will investigate the case as they have evidence of her time of call to the MP.
Meanwhile, Muntaka countered Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s claim that the NDC side bribed some MPs in the NPP fold to vote for Alban Bagbin instead of Prof. Mike Oquaye.
He opined “In all these crises and being in opposition for four years, how could we have got all these monies to bribe those who are in government?” If you ask every candidate of ours, you virtually have to finance everything that you have to do…how could we have been bribing. The thing is that if you have bad leadership, that is what you have; you’ll be so scared of your own shadow.
“Hon Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu is a nice gentleman when you come to the workings of the House but as a leader, I can tell you he is a very terrible one. He doesn’t know how to carry people along.”
