The Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central, Sampson Tangombu Chiragia has disclosed that the constituency would need in excess of 20,000 desks to properly address fully, the deficits infrastructural within the education sector.
Mr. Tangombu Chiragia said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
“I will need not less than 20,000 chairs to deal with the deficit. From primary 1 to primary 6 we have over 40,000 students, so you can imagine,” he said.
To this end, the MP has made a passionate appeal to well-meaning individuals and organisations to go to the aid of the constituency.
Mr. Tangombu Chiragia also mentioned that due to the extensive agrarian nature of the constituency, more needs to be done to enhance the lives and livelihoods of farmers. This he said can be done by extending waterways of dams, supporting farmers with subsidised inputs as well as offering credit facilities to farmers.

Asked why he could not use the MP Commun Fund to address the challenges, Mr. Tangombu Chiragia explained “there is nothing like MP’s Common Fund. As I speak, there are three quarters in arrears. It is less than Ghc80,000 per quarter. If you want to rely on the MP’s Common Fund, you cannot do anything,” he said.
He said his attention is currently focused at mobilising private support to help deal with some of challenges the constituency faces.
