But for the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Nana Akufo-Addo led government would have scored -2 out of 10. The amount of revenue that has been accrued by this government does not commensurate with the development that has been achieved within the past 6 years. This is according to the MP for the Navrongo Central Constituency, Sampson Tangombu Chiragia.
He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East.
Mr. Tangombu Chiragia expressed his disappointment in the NPP government for neglecting the people of the Upper East Region.
Despite the ongoing projects initiated by the government in the region, the MP insisted that the NPP had not been fair to the people of the region.
“The astroturf in Navrongo is not done. Pigs are on the field. People go to Paga to play football. I am saying that if am going to mark this government, taking constituency by constituency in this region, they have failed. Because Alhaji Bawumia is my brother, I gave them 2 out of 10. If it is Nana Addo alone, I will give him -2”.
“Other regions have got cabinet ministers. Apart from our regional Minister, we do not have cabinet ministers. Because in Binduri the MP won, they gave him a deputy minister position. We need a cabinet minister who will also send our issues to them,” he insisted.
The MP continued to say that the government has continually failed to live up to expectations.
Meanwhile, Mr. 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 20,00 chairs to deal with the deficit. From primary 1 to primary 6 we have over 40,00 students so you can imagine,” he said.
