Some NDC youth in the Kumbungu Constituency of the Northern Regional has allegedly destroyed billboards belonging to its Member of Parliament, Hon Ras Mubarak.
The billboards, one in Kumbungu and the other one in Gumo, erected a few days ago has both the pictures of Mr John Dramani Mahama, the 2020 Presidential Candidate for the NDC and the out-going Kumbungu Law-maker, Hon Ras Mubarak on each side.
However, the Kumbungu NDC youth destroys the side of Hon Ras Mubarak.
It is alleged that, the NDC youth are supporters of the 2020 NDC Parliamentary Candidate for Kumbungu, Dr. Hamza Adam.
We have gathered that, the erection of the billboards by the out-going Kumbungu legislature angered supporters of the NDC PC which resulted in the destruction of the two billboards.
According to the supporters of Dr. Hamza Adam, Mr. Ras Mubarak is no longer a representative of the NDC in the Constituency thus no billboard should bear his picture or name in the constituency, adding that, Mr. Ras Mubarak has no business erecting his billboards in the constituency.
There has been a bitter rivalry between Mr. Ras Mubarak and Dr. Hamza Adam following the defeat of the Kumbungu MP in the last year’s NDC Parliamentary elections.
Dr. Hamza Adam, a Lecturer with the University for Development Studies (UDS), polled 401 as against Hon Ras Mubarak’s 273 and 81 votes for the third candidate Baba Abdulai.
Mr. Mubarak after the elections alleges vote-buying and accused Dr. Hamza of money laundering. The two NDC bigwigs have since not been in good terms.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mubarak has since lodged a complaint to the police to investigate and bring the culprits to book.
