The Upper East Regional Communication Director for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Peter Ayinbisa, has described Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak, as a “radio MP” who, in his opinion, only makes noise without delivering tangible development to his constituents.
According to Mr. Ayinbisa, Dr. Apaak has fallen short on multiple fronts since assuming office, failing to fulfill the expectations placed on him by the constituents he represents.
“Just tell me one tangible thing that you have seen him bring or help to bring to the good of Builsa South… Zero, so, is that what he told the people when he was seeking their votes?”
“Of course, he will say his father is not in the kitchen, and we agreed. Then, tell us what of his colleagues MPs who are members of the same NDC and are bringing big projects to their constituents. He (Dr. Apaak) knows them. Simply put, he lacks lobbying skills. He thinks being an MP is all about talking on the radio.”
The director, who made this known on A1 Radio’s Morning Show, went further to accuse the Member of Parliament of lacking the necessary initiatives to bring about substantial growth to the Builsa South constituency.
He again expressed concerns about the overall contribution of some National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs in Parliament and their effectiveness in serving their constituents.
While his focus was on Dr. Apaak, Mr. Ayinbisa indicated that most of the opposition MPs only knew how to shout on the floor of parliament with few development initiatives to show back at their constituencies, especially those in the Upper East Region.
“The 14 MPs in the region, what exactly can we say they have helped to bring to the region in terms of development? From Isaac Adongo to Edward Bawa from Bongo, just mention them. So, how can the region develop?”
He, therefore, noted that parliamentary representation goes beyond mere vocalizations, stressing Dr. Apaak fell short of expectations, leaving the Builsa South constituency without the progress it deserves.
