I write to draw your attention to a widely circulated document purported to be emanating from three elements that are known loyalist of the Member of Parliament for Yendi, Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama which sorts to soil the hard earned reputation of the CEO of MASLOC, Hajia Abibata Shani Mahama Zakariah.
The said elements have flagrantly and brazenly violated the constitution of the party by misapplying the provisions and articles in the constitution in their desperate attempt to get Hajia Abibata’s image dented. It is imperative to note that those antics, gimmicks, shenanigans and mudslinging have the tendencies of causing intra-political bifurcation in our party and the ramifications will be teary for the masterminds.
These three individuals have jointly written a petition and they have made reference to the fact that the CEO of MASLOC has been having media engagements, organizing meetings and visiting communities and all this are geared towards promoting her parliamentary ambition. Thus, the petitioners have seen this to be a violation of the constitution of the party since nominations are not yet opened.
In 2017, immediately after the investiture of the president, the self-shadow scared Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama then Deputy Procurement Director at Cocoa board blatantly defied and disregarded the guiding spirit of the party and organized those same meeting, parties, media engagements and many others all calculated to unseat the then Member of Parliament, Hon. Alhaji Mohammed Habib Tijani. What has changed? Or is your self-shadow scared MP an angel? How absurd!
It is my fervent wish that those three petitioners namely Aliu Adam Mohammed, Abukari Inusah and Abukari Iddrisu are educated on the provisions and articles of the party since they are new entrants after having defected to NDC in 2008. It however, should be borne in mind that Hajia Abibata Shanni Mahama is an integral member of the government and holds a coveted position and therefore cannot be stopped by any individual from discharging her official duties even if it affects your selfish interest.
As a respectable and proud daughter of Dagbon, born and bred in Yendi, the only northern female appointee of the government. She thought it wise to pay homage to opinion leaders in the constituency and also to inform them of the confidence the President, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo has reposed in her by making her the substantive CEO of MASLOC. She did not meet any polling station executive or delegate.
Again, she had engagements with TV and Radio stations basically to educate the masses on how her outfit (MASLOC office) operates and nothing more. It should also be put on record that in an interview with DJ Naporo on Gbewah show, a question was posed to her if she would contest for Yendi Seat in 2024 and her response was “I will contest for Yendi seat in 2024 if nominations are opened, but for now no comment”.
From the above, which of these activities of Hajia Abibata contravene or violates any of the provisions or articles of the constitution? Or do you need your self-shadow scared man to tell you that, Yendi seat is not his bona fide property? It is against this militating development that I write to rejoin the petition in my capacity as a true blue man and a commited patriot calling on the leadership of the constituency to as a matter of urgency to summon the petitioners (new entrants) and sanction them punitively so as to serve as deterrent to others.
I pray and hope you discharge your powers diligently to uphold the party’s constitution in high spirit.
