Deputy Director of Election for the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) Mahdi Jibril has vehemently denied claims that the party’s Flag bearer, John Mahama excluded former Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu and Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak from the party’s National Campaign Team for the December 7 general elections.

Following the release of the NDC Campaign Team which did not include the two experienced politicians, there have been allegation that this goes to prove the strained relationship that exists between the former president and the two former leaders of the NDC in Parliament.

The General Secretary of the NDC, has released the list of party gurus forming the NDC’s campaign team dated 19th June, 2024.

But speaking on Ghana Kasa on Kasapa 102.5FM, Deputy Director of Elections for the NDC, Mahdi Jibril urged the public to treat the allegation against the former President with the contempt that it deserves as it is palpably false.

He accused the governing New Patriotic Party of being behind the wicked propaganda which is intended to cause disaffection in the NDC.

Mahdi Jibril added that the Asawase MP, Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak has never been a member of the NDC National Campaign team in past elections.

“Many people especially NPP members are making all sorts of allegation over the exclusion of Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak. When have we ever seen Muntaka in NDC national campaign team before? Asawase is one of the difficult places during elections in the Ashanti Region. Anybody going for election in that area will have to focus on that constituency to win the election. Muntaka needs to focus his attention on his constituency which the governing New Patriotic Party is bent on wrestling from the NDC.”
