The Ahafo Regional Nasara Coordinator of the governing New Patriotic Party Mr.Amadu Mohammed Ahmed has lashed out an attack against Asunafo South legislator Hon Collins Dauda for his ethnocentric against the ruling NPP.
According to him the comment made by the Member of Parliament of Asunafo South is unacceptable and unfortunate for a whole MP to come out with such disgraceful comment.
“Hon Collins Dauda in a tape alleging that there is no way that the ruling NPP will allow Northerners to occupy better positions(like an MP) in our party unlike the NDC. Which we see this comment as unfortunate,uncouth,uncalled for and must be condemned by all well meaning Ghanaians” he said
He stressed that “at his age, it is expected of him to serve as a role model to the youth but not engaging in these divisive and insipid commentaries which have a potential of threatening the peaceful environment we are currently enjoying in Asutifi South which was lacking during their(NDC) era”
“It’s not surprising though that these unfortunate pronouncements are coming from him, this has been his trump card over the years and has being benefitting from these tribal comments but this time round we are not going to tolerate that. Divide and rule tactics has been his trick.” Ahmed indicated
Nasara Coordinator opined that Hon. Dauda has realized that 2020 battle is a lost one since all the signs show he (Dauda) can no longer compete with the NPP potential candidate in ideas but his ‘gutter politics’.
It is a common knowledge in Ghana that many northerners have been given the opportunity to serve in this country through NPP government. Collins Dauda knows this but for cheap partisan gimmickry and propaganda.
“Dr. Bawumia who is the Vice President of this Republic is from Walewale, Hon.Ambrose Derry, Hon.Dominic Nitiwul, Alhaji Dr. Mustapha Hamid, Anthony Karbo, Hajia Alima Mahama from Nalerigu are all Ministers serving in this government”
Hon Collins Dauda has forgotten that his next door neighbour MP from Asutifi North,Hon Daha is a non-Akan not to talk about the tall list of national, regional and constituency executives who are northerners so where from this child comment from a whole legislature.
“We want to ask him these simple questions; Don’t we have NPP MPs who are northerners? and how many northerners has he mentored to take over from him?
Finally, we call on well meaning and all peace loving Ghanaians to come out and condemn this unfortunate pronouncement from this Member of Parliament. He must be made to apologize and retract accordingly. ” He added”.
