Former Member of Parliament of Kumbungu Ras Mubarak has noted that it is naive for the Minority to take steps in going to the Supreme Court to challenge the passing of the controversial E-Levy.
He said the Minority is entitled to seek redress at the apex court but it would be naive for them to trust and believe to have justice from the court.
In his view, the Supreme Court has in recent times delivered ridiculous rulings making it impossible for them to rule in favour of the Minority.
For him, he does not have confidence in the apex court and the Minority should not have gambled when they don’t know the outcome.
“The Supreme Court is making ridiculous rulings and having faith in it is naive,” he stressed.
He indicated that If the NPP was so determined to the point of wheeling a seriously ill MP in an ambulance to vote, the NDC had no excuse for not exhausting legitimate parliamentary procedure to get its member into the chamber to vote.
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he posited that the passage of the levy was insensitive to the aspirations of the citizens but the Minority walking out during proceedings was a horrible strategy.
Ras Mubarak maintained that getting to be confident that the Supreme Court will reverse the decision is naive and not a smart move.
“It is good to have faith but so far as I am concerned, I am not sure this will lead to an expected outcome.”
