Angry supporters of opposition NDC aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Asawase Masawudu Mubarick Thursday morning stormed the party’s Ashanti Regional office to cause mayhem in protest of the party’s decision to disqualify their candidate.
They set tyres ablaze and tried to vandalize party property after the party declared incumbent Member of Parliament for Asawase constituency Muntaka Mubarak as unopposed candidate for the 2020 Parliamentary election.
A statement signed Tuesday by General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, announced the disqualification of the aspirant and declared incumbent MP, Muntaka Mubarak to contest unopposed.
“By the decision, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak goes unopposed and for that matter stands elected as the parliamentary candidate for the Asawase constituency,” the statement said.
Angered by that decision Masawudu’s supporters thronged the party’s regional office, locked it, set tyres ablaze and also destroyed the office furniture.
