National Democratic Congress (NDC) legislator, Murtala Mohammed Ibrahim , says one of his colleague MPs from the region, is plotting to unseat him in 2016.
He also charged that a minister hires girls to get a colleague cabinet minister’s nude photos, obviously for publications in the media.
The Nantong legislator, who withheld the name of his colleague so-called saboteur exploded on Tamale based Diamond FM in an exclusive interview.
But The Herald’s findings are that the Minister Murtala is talking about is Haruna Iddrisu, the Minister of Employment.
Mr. Iddrisu is said to be in the bad books of lot of NDC MPs from the Tamale enclave of the Northern Region.
Although he is yet to speak to the allegations, he has several times been accused of scheming to oust the Road Minister, Inussah Fuseini.
Unconfirmed reports are that the two ministers are not on talking terms. But reports are that the Tamale chiefs, have been trying desperately to bring the two men together to no avail.
Murtala in his outburst, said “someone who said to three people, Murtala has not incurred my wrath, I simply don’t want him to succeed: I just don’t want him to succeed in life.”
“Are you God, who the f**k are you,” the angry Nantong legislator fumed.
The Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, threatened to name and shame the said northern MP anytime soon.
He claimed to have in his possession three recorded tapes of a meeting between the said northern MP and some of the NDC Nantong Constituency executives.
“I have audios, I swear to God; I am a Muslim, a practicing Muslim and I will not swear if I don’t have it.”
He sent an early warning to his saboteurs to stop their machinations to make him one term MP for the Nantong Constituency.
“I spend a lot in my Constituency: I have no business in anybody’s Constituency, what business do you have in my Constituency,” Murtala asked.
The Deputy Trade Minister charged, “It is pathetic, absolutely pathetic: is unethical, is so funny, is so stupid, is so silly, is nasty, is un-Islamic for people of the same party to be sitting down and their intention is about how they can get someone out of Parliament.”
He said, no amount of persuasion by some Imams and elders of the NDC in the region would convince him not to expose the said northern MP, plotting to cut short his Parliamentary rank.
“When I begin to speak out, let no hypocrite in Dagbon, nobody will stop me.”
Murtala Mohammed, also dared his critics to drag him to court if he committed any crime as then Deputy National Coordinator of the thrice rebranded National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP).
He is also quoted as saying that a cabinet minister in the Mahama-led administration, is making frantic efforts to set up a colleague cabinet minister.
According to the Nanton MP, the said minister has bought a tablet and a mobile phone for a lady friend of the other cabinet minister to enable her secure him nude pictures of his colleague.
“I ask those sycophantic elements to ask the said MP whether it is ethical to buy a tablet and a mobile phone for a lady friend of a colleague cabinet Minister to get nude pictures of that colleague of his, available WhatsApp messages, text messages and audio.
“Those sycophants have no idea where they dragging him to. They should not push me,” the former deputy Information minister wrote on his Facebook in response to comments following his outburst on Tamale-based Diamond FM over alleged plans by some members of parliament from the Northern region to frustrate his political career.
He said although he regrets some of the comments he made in his interview with the station, he stands by everything he said about those he believes are scheming to get him booted out of parliament in the 2016 elections.
“I observed with regrettable coyness de numerous comments made on social media as well as on radio about my comments on Radio Diamond. Some of de comments are made by people who genuinely care for the truth and some unfortunately motivated by reasons known to their consciences. I had no doubt in mind that my comments were certainly going to provoke the kind of debate it provoked.
“For those who r genuinely hurt by my comments I sincerely apologise to them. But for de said MP and those who think like him, i have no apology for them not now n not ever”.
