It was like a coup d’etat, everybody saw it to be cruel – Muntaka considers the minority reshuffle again

Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, the former Minority Chief Whip, claims he has moved past all of the misunderstandings brought on by a change in leadership on his side of the legislature.

He believed that the greater benefit of the party came before personal gain, thus he chose to just ignore the disagreements that developed after the unveiling of a new group of leaders.

It would be foolish not to put some of these things behind you because moving forward doesn’t require any sort of settlement. You must recall that when things were tense, John Mahama, the former president, entered the room, and I, Haruna, and Avedzi remarked, “Look, what is it?” It’s not really a thing. It only concerns the approach. We had the chance to serve; keep in mind that others were there before you.

“You now have the chance to serve. Yes, the manner was ruthless and resembled a coup d’etat, but regardless of that, a conflict cannot continue unless you wish to ruin the group that you have chosen to spend your childhood with. So, he said, “We put all that behind us.

Muntaka said that the new crop of leaders, including Ato Forson, Kwame Agbodza, and others, closely collaborated with him when he served as Chief Whip, so it is only fitting that he lends his support to them in order for them to flourish and for the overall welfare of the caucus.

“So we left all that behind us, and it goes without saying that the next generation of leaders are people who worked with us; they were our subordinates. They were practically like my boys, so I’ll call them,” he added.

“The ranking on finance, who was collaborating closely with me as Chief Whip, was the new leader. The new deputy leader was also ranking on commerce, while the Chief Whip was ranking on roads and working closely with me. They were all closely collaborating with me. It is our duty to assist them if they are people who have in some way contributed to our success and if, for whatever reason, they are now a part of the new leadership.

As the MP continued, “Believe me, I spent all of my formative years in this House and I should be the last to want to destroy the party or the remaining legacies. So, we have put those things behind us and we are working with them; doing the best that we can to support them so that at least the caucus succeeds.

One of the minority leaders who objected to the selection of new minority leaders to take the place of him and some others was Muntaka.

He claims that the move was an attempt to have him and others, including the previous Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, removed from office. He claims that the decision was made without receiving wider input.

As a result, he made several statements and resisted accepting the decision until several senior party members stepped in.

However, the Asawase member of parliament claims that he has put the disagreements behind him and accepted the verdict in good faith months after the outburst.
