‘We are targeting over 35,000 votes in Kumbungu’ – Ras Mubarak

The National Democratic Congress, (NDC) Kumbungu Parliamentary Nominee for the 2016 elections, Mr. Ras Mubarak has revealed that the party is targeting over 35,000 votes to recapture the  Kumbungu Constituency seat in the upcoming polls on December 7.
He said the NDC is confident of winning back the seat from the Convention People’s Party’s, (CPP) David Moses who won the seat in 2012 from the NDC in a bye-election. The NDC Parliamentary Candidate made these known during his campaign launch in the Kumbungu Constituency of the Northern Region Over the weekend. Ras Mubarak was emphatic that the party will win over 96% out of the over 40,000 votes in the entire constituency.
“Well if you are familiar with Kumbungu you might be aware that, CPP winning the seat was an accident” Mr. Ras Mubarak added. He indicated the party has resolved its differences and is poised for victory on December 7. Adding the outpouring support from the rank and file of the party clearly indicates that the party is more than united.img-20161004-wa0004
“The people are interested in development, not a Member of Parliament who is an obscure backbencher. Let the CPP have no doubt we are recapturing the Kumbungu seat” Ras Mubarak stated.
The NDC Parliamentary hopeful disclosed the people of Kumbungu have seen development and are looking forward to having a young, dynamic and vibrant MP who will lobby and get things done and move with the youth and support the women and elderly in the area.
The Chief Executive Officer for the National Youth Authority, Mr. Ras Mubarak was however optimistic the NDC caucus in the Kumbungu Constituency was united ahead of the December polls.
He noted the two former NDC MPs of the area are all in support of the party’s efforts to win back the seat. He revealed the party is not perturbed by the incumbent CPP Member of Parliament and added the CPP is not a threat to the NDC.

He stressed further that as a result, the seat is coming back to the NDC after the elections.
Meanwhile, Majority Chief Whip and Member of Parliament for the Asawase constituency of the Ashanti Region, Hon Muntaka Mubarak bemoaned that, lack of unity within the party in the area caused them the seat to the CPP in the 2012 bye-elections.
He said a divided party can never win an election and ensure the development of any community in the country and thus urged the NDC party foot-soldiers to support the party’s parliamentary candidate for the votes of president Mahama to be increased.
