Member of the Upper East Regional People’s National Congress (PNC) communication team, Johnson Ayine, has condemned the naivety with which people address issues of politics in the region, adding that such attitudes are what have made the region last when it comes to development in the country.
According to the party communicator, people have failed to accept and bring the real nature and truth of issues in the region to bear because of politics, describing that “we are sick as a region”.
Citing an example of such instances to support his submission, Mr. Ayine expressed shock at how party members condemned one Joe Baba for posting on social media an issue of furniture deficit at a basic school in Sokabisi, a suburb of the Bolgatanga Municipality.
He urged politicians and sympathizers of the various political parties to desist from painting untrue pictures of issues that are factual and there for everyone to see. He also commended the Bolgatanga Municipal Chief Executive, Amiyuure Joseph Atura, for his sincerity in accepting the facts that basic schools within his jurisdiction are hurdled with the challenge of lack of furniture.
“One thing that I like is when you admit, like the way the municipal chief executive admitted. He admitted that the problem exists. But he is challenged with resources. Money is the problem. So if leaders admit that these exist, if all of us admit that these problems exist, but the challenge is money. God will provide the resources. When is deny that the problem exist, you are compounding the issues”. He stressed.
The outspoken PNC member was making comments with regards to a report by A1 Radio’s Ngamegbulam Chidozie Stephen who told a story of how pupils in many basic schools within the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly lie prostrate to receive tuition during class hours.
He made the comments on Day-Break upper East on A1 radio when Samuel Mbura Hosted him alongside communicators of other political parties.
