Asawasi Is Still Intact For Ndc For 2012 Election

Many in the NDC are those who have been perturbed with the recent cases of defections in the Asawasi Constituency, one of the strongholds of the ruling NDC party.

To the opposition NPP, those are good news and a signs of victory for Nana Akuffo-Addo and the NPP ,whiles some supporters of the ruling NDC consider them as threats, based on the fact that numbers stand the paramount recipe in political success as far as elections are concern.

I do not know whether the supposed defections from the NDC to the NPP, and the subsequent comments from some of those groups that their efforts are geared towards unseating the incumbent MP of the constituency, continues to make Nana Addo and the NPP confident enough to have their candidate in that constituency successful in wrestling the seat from the incumbent hardworking Member of parliament for that constituency, Hon. Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak. If my guest is something to go by, then the NPP is dreaming and fantasizing, as I shout Hurray!!!……….and Hurray!!!……. For NDC and the Incumbent Member of Parliament.

I know it would not be very easy for people, especially those without the constituency and even some within it, to understand the reason for my being happy unless after the 2012 election, which I pray that we all live to witness.

I am happy with the way Executives of the NPP are handling and showering money on the defected groups in Asawasi constituency, where bags of rice, sheep and drinks are enveloped with thousands of Ghana Cedis to help make the defected youth happy. It is my hope that they increase the amount of money as well as the number of bags of rice, for many of the constituency youth to enjoy from. Their newly formed motto which goes as " SIKA KAKRA, ODO KAKRA" meaning, the youth of the constituency should be thinking of little of both money and love from and to the NPP respectively, but not absolute love for the party.

Indeed, politics in Ghana has grown beyond money but rather circles around competence and performance, which Hon. Mohammed Muntaka has been exhibiting since he assumed office since the year 2005 to date. Talk of Education, Infrastructure, and Health.

It remains an unabated fact that education is the wheel to success and thus it is with knowledge that any nation can develop. The role that this honorable MP has been playing in ensuring that his constituents have better education could not be over-emphasized.

The fact remains that more than three-hundred students have enjoyed and are still enjoying from the scholarship package of the honorable MP.

In addition to which has pledged TEN-THOUSAND GHANA CEDIS (10,000) to the ISLAMIC EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT FUND, which is under the auspices of the United Forum for Islamic Affairs, an Ashanti Regional cased Organization, all in his quest for improving upon the educational qualities and needs of his constituents.

He has been working very hard to provide at least two constituency libraries not to talk of extension of class room blocks and their renovations as he tremendously distributed desks to almost all the Schools in his constituency.

Stated above are to mention just few of what this honorable MP has been doing for the constituency. Lots of which would be made aware of in the appropriate time.

Let me state clearly that, the NPP would be worse-off in Asawasi COME 2012 as anybody who appears on the ticket of the NPP to contest the hardworking Hon. Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak would abysmally trail behind him more than Mrs. Patricia Appiah-Adjei, Alhaji Musah Sharif and Dr. Mohammed Kabir INSHA'ALLAH, though the youth in the constituency would continue to enjoy from the bags of rice and money from the NPP.

God bless President Mills and the wonderful people of Ghana.

God bless Hon. Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak.
