Muntaka Mubarak, the former Minority Chief Whip, has agreed to the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) plan to realign the Minority’s front bench in Parliament.
He (Muntaka Mubarak), Mr. Haruna Iddrisu, Mr. James Klutse Avedzi, who was also the Deputy Minority Leader at the time, and Mr. James Klutse Avedzi were all impacted by the reorganization.
The Asawase MP, who was not pleased with the decision, claims he has accepted it out of loyalty to the party.
The former Minister for Sports commended former President John Mahama for getting involved in the situation in a Facebook post on Monday, February 6.
He claims that the intervention has put a stop to all of the confusion surrounding the reorganization.
“To all our supporters within and without. I had a lengthy meeting with my big brother, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, on Saturday evening over the parliamentary reshuffle.
“I want to first of all thank him for the words of advice and encouragement to me as a younger brother.
“His Excellency’s intervention has brought an end to all the brouhaha associated with the reshuffle.”
Thus, he exhorted the party’s grassroots members to concentrate their efforts on the 2024 elections.

Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson was appointed by the NDC to succeed Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu last month.
As the Deputy Minority Leader and Minority Chief Whip, respectively, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, MP for Ellembelle, took over for James Klutse Avedzi, MP for Ketu North. Kwame Governs Agbodza, MP for Asawase, took over for Muntaka Mubarak, MP for Asawase.
As a result, there were some disagreements about the “lack of consultation” that the NDC MPs who were upset expressed.
To present the new leadership to the Minority MPs, the party leadership will meet with them all later today.
