Some concerned assembly members in the Bono Region have showered praises on Former President John Dramani Mahama for including them in his plans once elected as President on December 7. My News Ghana reports
Assembly Members have been abandoned in the government’s payroll despite their immense contribution to grassroots development.
The concerned Assembly Members in a Press Release copied to My News Ghana described the former president’s idea as brilliant and pledged their support to ensure that the initiative is implemented.
Read Their Full Statement as copied to Mynewsghana.net below:
We the concerned assembly members of Bono Region have taken notice of His Execellency John Dramani Mahama’s digital address and conversation w ith the citizenry on his proposal to make the necessary arrangement to make sure we the assembly members are paid on a monthly basis to sustain our community engagements and activities.
It is in this regard that we want to first show our appreciation and urge the former President and the leader of the National Democratic Congress to keep on with his vision while we also gather the needed resources to assist him so as to be able to fulfil his vision for us.
We are also enthused, with how he articulated his vision by hinting how he is going to get funding for this brilliant idea. We wish to also add that, a proposal to that effect has been drafted to assist him in smooth implementation.
It is rather unfortunate that a whole minister in-charge of Local Government, who rather ought to have been championing such ideas and even commend His Execellency John Dramani Mahama for such a wonderful proposal has rather turned to castigate the idea.
We the concerned assembly members of Bono Region will like to serve notice to the Minister and the entire Nation that for this idea alone we are going to run solidly behind His Execellency John Dramani Mahama to make sure the vision becomes a reality if not for us, but, for the next and yet unborn generation alone is a course worth fighting for.
On this note, we will like to appeal to our fellow assembly members in other Regions to also mobilise and campaign massively in their respective electoral areas for His Execellency John Dramani Mahama. Thank you
