Muntaka Mubarak Apologizes To Chief Justice
The Member of Parliament for Asawase constituency who doubles as the Minority Chief Whip for NDC, Hon. Alhaji Mohammed – Mubarak Muntaka says he has reflected deeply and consulted broadly on the aftermath of the disclosure he made on Joy News TV during an interview on January 10, 2021.
Alhaji had disclosed that a trusted colleague reported to him that a Justice of the Supreme Court sought to entice her to vote for a particular candidate during the contest for the speakership of Parliament.
He said, since he did not specifically name any judge, it may have had an effect of scandalizing the judicatory in its entirety. “This unintended consequences is deeply regretted”, he added.
Hon. Mubarak therefore says he respectfully retract and apologize for the harm done to the image and reputation of his Lord Justice of the Supreme Court and the Judiciary as a whole.
“I have also decided to let sleeping dogs lie and will consequently refrain from any further public commentary on the matter which as I have indicated, was originally reported to me by a female colleague Parliamentarian based upon good counsel”, he said.
The media and general public have therefore been tasked to respect the spirit in which he offers this retraction and apology.
The Member of Parliament concluded that, it is his prayer that the existing historic cordial relations between the legislature and the judiciary will not be affected by this incident but will continue to grow in the interest of the country.
