The sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for the Kumbungu Constituency in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak has lost his bid to contest on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 Parliamentary election.
He was defeated by Dr. Hamza Adam, a lecturer at the University of Development Studies (UDS)
He polled 273 votes while Dr Adam polled 401 to grab the party’s ticket.
He also accused his opponent of money laundering, saying he has reported Dr Adam to the Bureau of National Investigations.
“As a country, we have to rethink the way we want our politics to go forward. We have seen levels of vote-buying and particularly in the Kumbungu election,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.
He continued: “Interestingly I have even reported and complained to the BNI to look into the possibility of money laundering. Officially, I have reported to the BNI to look at how people could just share money like crazy so to speak just three days ago.”
