President John Mahama has summoned Murtala Mohammed over his recent rage that an unnamed MP is plotting to sabotage him.
The Presidency has summoned the Deputy Trade Minister, Murtala Mohammed, over his tirade in the media that some government officials are plotting to unseat him.
Murtala Mohammed has in his recent rage over attempts by an unnamed Member of Parliament (MP) to sabotage him, alleged that the said MP hired a lady to take nude pictures of a Cabinet Minister.
He claimed the MP bought a tablet phone for the lady with the hope of using such information to sabotage the Cabinet Minister.
The Nantong lawmaker in an earlier interview he granted to Tamale based Diamond FM accused an MP of using unfair means to unseat him.
Murtala is yet to mention names but President Mahama has invited him to explain his claims.
However, the Northern Regional branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called for a meeting to look into allegations by Mr. Mohammed Murtala.
The NDC Northern Regional Chairman, Sofo Azorka told Atinka FM on Friday that he has co-opted two senior MPs in the region, Alhaji Amadu Seidi, Hajia Salifu Boforo, the Council of Elders and the Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Limuna Muniru to meet on Monday, April 13, 2015 to go into the matters and give directions on the way forward.
Murtala Mohammed on Thursday wrote on his Facebook wall that: “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 are dragging him to. They should not push me.”
“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 are genuinely hurt by my comments I sincerely apologise to them. But for the said MP and those who think like him, I have no apology for them not now and not ever.”
