Kwesimintsim MP lists first term achievements
Member of Parliament for Kwesimintsim, Mr. Joseph Mensah has listed his achievements as a first term Member of Parliament. This comes few weeks to the primaries of the New Patriotic Party, which falls on April 25th 2020.
Mr. Joseph Mensah is in the competition with the Executive Secretary of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) who has strong believe that, Mr. Joseph Mensah has performed poorly, and therefore deserves no second term to represent the people of kwesimintsim in the law-making chamber of Ghana. There are as well many, including ordinary residents of Kwesimintsim who have indicated on several platforms that Mr. Joseph Mensah has failed as a first term MP, whilst, over 70 percent of the delegates in the constituency in a recent survey rejected to vote for Mr. Joseph Mensah in the primaries.
But Mr. Joe Mensah believes, he is facing these repercussions due to his failure to showcase his achievements to the public. He believes he has achieved roaring success as a member of parliament for Kwesimintim. The Legislator therefore took journalists on a tour of his constituency to enable them have a firsthand information on the projects he has been undertaking as a first term MP. Some of the projects include roads, CHIPS compounds, community playing fields, durbar grounds with pavements blocks, storm drains, merchandised boreholes, footbridges etc.
“This is my first term, but they keep telling me I have not done anything. So today, I decided to take journalists around to see, for themselves, what I have done, and the evidence is clear that I have done a lot as a first term MP, and I will continue to do more for the people of Kwesimintsim. I have already sold myself and there is no need bringing another person to contest me, I already have the track record and I need to be given another chance to continue. In the 2016 elections, I promised a 70% win for Nana Addo and I worked hard to achieve it,” he told journalists in an interview.
Mr. Joseph Mensah believes, a recent survey by the Western Journal which projected him as the best performing first term Member of Parliament in the Sekondi Takoradi metropolis, as a clear attestation of his achievements.
“A recent survey by some journalists here in the Western Region has indeed attested to what I have done within this shortest possible time. They are journalists and they have seen the works I have done so the people voted and I was the best first term MP in the metropolis. So why should I not continue?” he asked
