Mubarick Masawudu, a contender in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries in the Asawase constituency is alleging plans of sabotage by some leaders of the party at the constituency and regional level.

He said the utterances of some executives of the party give clear indications of efforts to stop him from contesting the incumbent Member of Parliament, Muntaka Mubarak.

Mubarick Masawudu made the comment after he found the regional office of the party under lock and key when he arrived at the premises on Thursday afternoon to file his nomination form.
Armed police officers were deployed to the regional party office to avert possible chaos due to tensions between supporters of Muntaka Mubarak and those of Mubarick Masawudu.
Mubarick Masawudu in an interview said he expected the party at the regional level to uphold its tenet of fairness.
He stressed that attempts to ensure that Muntaka Mubarak runs unopposed will not be accepted.
