Murtala Mohammed has alleged that one of his colleague MPs from the region is plotting to unseat him in 2016.
Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, 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 claims the MP bought a tablet phone for the lady with the hope of using such information to sabotage the Cabinet Minister.
The Nantong Member of Parliament had in an earlier interview he granted to Tamale based Diamond FM accused an MP of using unfair means to unseat him.
“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 r 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 the 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 n not ever”.
