In other news, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu constituency, Ras Mubarak, has claimed that some delegates were influenced with money during the just-ended National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries.
He explained that Hamza Adam, a lecturer at the University for Development Studies (UDS), won because someone called Hamza Abdulaziz provided money to influence the delegates.
He further revealed that the motive behind the sharing of the money was simply to unseat him, a development he believes could hurt Ghana’s democratic gains.
