The former Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak has revealed that the National Democratic Congress [NDC] lost the in the 2020 election because of its inability to manage petty conflicts in the party.
“We as a party lost the election because of our inability to manage conflicts among the party leaders and their members,” he said while commenting on Stephen Atubiga’s resignation on Accra-based Angel FM’s Morning Show monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com.
According to Ras Mubarak, “you set things right as a family member when things go wrong but the NDC is found of letting go of their members who opposes leadership decisions and the members also leaves with their family members but we all know that politics is about members. How then do we win election?.”
He further called on the leadership of the party to learn to accommodate dissenting views from other party members.
“We should accommodate dissenting opinions, respond to contrary views to already established decisions as a political party but the NDC has failed at that aspect as a political party because one thing we have not been doing as a party is the leadership engaging the party members at the grassroot,” he stated.
He also mentioned that “Any party that rejects contradictions need serious reformations and that is why we are all working towards perfecting our mother party NDC to become a better one.”
“Come home to the NDC, that’s where you belong,” Ras Mubarak pleaded with Stephen Atubiga.
