NPP’s 1st term performance, better than NDC – Sekondi MP
The Member of Parliament for the Sekondi constituency, Lawyer Andrew Egyapa Mercer has challenged the NDC to tell Ghanaians what they did in their first term when they took office.
Hon. Agyapa Mercer said, projects of the ruling NPP are available for everybody to see and no government in the fourth republic has been able to achieve what the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo government has executed in this short term.
The MP was addressing the media after he inspected some ongoing and completed projects in his constituency.
Following the vice president’s media town hall meeting and the fall out of the NDC’s accusations describing some of the projects as ghost, Mr. Andrew Egyapa Mercer took some media persons through his constituency to have a first-hand information on the projects executed so far.
“I am sure that throughout our rounds you have seen clearly the kinds of projects we have been doing in this constituency: classrooms infrastructure, AstroTurf facilities to community centers to toilet facilities to water systems are all across the constituencies and so it was important we put these things in proper perspective for people to see that indeed what the Vice President mentioned are actually in place.
For me the significant part of the work that we do is to make sure that development infrastructure comes into our communities. I can clearly indicate that, the work this President (Akufo Addo) has done in his first term is unprecedented. No government under the first republic has done the kind of investments in sectors of our economy than what his excellency Nana Akufo Addo has done, so when we say four more it is not merely a cliché”. Lawyer Andrw Egyaper Mercer Indicated
Among the projects that the MP inspected were, completed 12-unit classrooms, ongoing girls dormintory, all at the Fijai SHS, ongoing Astro turf park at Sekondi, town roads at Kweikuma, an ongoing 12-unit class room block at Aggrey memorial school and 6unit classroom block at Queen Elizabeth Nursery School.
The Sekondi law maker indicated that, there are other several projects, which are either completed or on various stages of completion. He pleaded to Ghanaians to give the Akufo Addo government another term.
“It is something we say with a clear conviction that with the kind of work that we’ve done over the past three and half years going to four obviously, if the good people of this land entrust the NPP with another mandate, we will definitely deliver more than what we have done and our opponent who claim and tout infrastructural achievement as their only trump card” Andrew Egyapa Mercer indicated.
