Dr Mark Assibey-Yeboah, MP for New Juaben South

Prominent Veteran Journalist Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has endorsed the candidature of MP for New Juaben South and Chairman of the Finance Committee of Parliament, Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah.

Dr. Assibey-Yeboah is seeking re-election for the NPP in the April 25 parliamentary primaries and was successfully vetted by the leadership of the party last week.

In a Facebook conversation, the veteran journalist Kweku Baako described Assibey-Yeboah as “a big brain in legislative matters especially the financials”

“Mark is a quality material fit for Parliament! Undisputed!! Continuity endorsed!!” he said.

Mr. Baako said the Parliamentary work of the governing party would be weaker without the finance committee chair in the house.

In justifying his endorsement, the prominent journalist said, “The focus or emphasis ought not to be on who’s a better family man or not!No!

“As a non-party man, and a student of parliamentary business and history I have no hesitation in endorsing Mark!  The emphasis should be on his legislative competence and prowess

“As a student of parliamentary history, I can say he’s an excellent material to retain in Ghana parliament for the foreseeable future”, Mr Baako stated.

He added that Ghana’s parliament needs his skills and prowess to provide quality legislation and good governance!

Dr. Assibey-Yeboah is being contested by the Executive Secretary for the Free Zones Board Michael Okyere Baafi.
