The Bono Regional Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo has expressed shock and disappointment over the statement made by the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Hon. Hajia Alima Mahama (MP) on proposals to pay Assembly Members. He alleged that, the Minister has kicked against the proposal made by the NDC’s flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, the decision by the Minister to kick against payment proposal of all our law makers at our various assemblies and called it unnecessary is a sign of wickedness and witchcraft. “I see this action by Nana Addo as a shared wickedness and witchcraft because these Honourable members spend a lot to get elected and the responsibilities on them after winning their elections are more than that of the MPs because they are directly with the people.”
Efo Wolanyo Tsekpo is worried over President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to have kicked against a brilliant Proposal of former president John Dramani Mahama.
He noted that, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been faithful to Assembly Members and started by giving them motorbikes and special sitting allowances.
According to President John Dramani Mahama, in his next government all Assembly Members will be on monthly salary to help them buy fuel into their motorbikes to continue their hard work at their various electoral areas.
