Minority leader, Haruna Iddirsu in a leaked tape has claimed that women in the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot be trusted because they are dating male Members of Parliament (MPs) in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The lawmaker for Tamale South who is believed to have made the comments in the post-Ayawaso West Wuogon meeting held for party communicators in which the National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo was in attendance and allegedly made some damning comments, is heard wondering how he could relay vital information in such instances.
“Because amongst us… I am sorry to report this because some of our women are being dated by NPP MPs. So when that happens how can share the trust I have shared with each one of you? Only a few senior members behind us know about it. Because if you say it, they (NDC Members) would go and sell it”, he disclosed.
The latest information appears to have corroborated earlier that a female lawmaker on the side of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is responsible for the leaked tape that is generating series of controversies in the umbrella family.
It is unclear whether the said female MP was part of the meeting in which some of the comments were purported to have been made but sources indicate that she first submitted it to Oman FM’s Gordon Asare Bediako who in turn submitted to his boss, Kennedy Agyapong before it was aired.
The motivation for the leakage is still unknown but it is believed the MP in question is at warpaths with the National Chairman and saw this as an opportune time to pay back.
Mr. Gordon Asare Bediako has refused to disclose details of the said female MP when reached by this portal except to say he is not the original source of the leaked tape but got it through a friend.
“I got the whole tape through a friend and I don’t expect you to ask who that person could be because it would amount to betrayal of trust. As to whether the person was paid or not, all that matter now is the details of the tape which as a journalist I am interested”, he disclosed.
