This has sparked controversy after he held the hand of a child said to be six years old to thumbprint the presidential and parliamentary ballot papers.

It’s said that Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka arrived at the polling station at Aboabo with his wife, son and daughter. In a video, the MP was sighted using the daughter’s thumb to vote.

He later took the ballot papers, folded them, and gave them back to the minor to drop in the ballot box.

“If you see her, she’s only six years old. She doesn’t even understand what’s going on. I raised her thumb and did the thumb-printing; it was virtually me doing it. If I had given it to her, she would not have even known what to do. She’s my princess and I came with her during the last elections. I’m just taking her through the process,” Muntaka is said to have explained.

It is unclear if Muntaka’s biggest opponent, Alhaji Alidu Seidu of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has voted yet.

The Asawase seat is one of three seats held by the NDC in the Ashanti Region, including Sekyere Afram Plains and Ejura Sekyedumasi
