The Member of Parliament for Dormaa East, Paul Apraku Twum Barimah has advised Members of Parliament (MPs) of the New Patriotic Party to support President Akufo Addo to deliver in his second Term.
Speaking in an interview, Mr Twum Barimah said the president can only deliver to the satisfaction of the people of Ghana when he is ably and strongly supported by the majority caucus in Parliament.
He urged his colleague MPs to desist from blaming one another regarding who voted against the party’s nominee as speaker of parliament and unite in preparation for the task ahead.
Mr Twum Barimah indicated that winning the 2024 general election is key and that should be the target.
The achievement of this objective, he noted, will depend on the performance of the president and the party in terms of prudent management of the economy and improvement in the livelihoods of the people of Ghana.
“The President needs us and we must not let him down. We need to avoid settling personal scores and executing the blame games. The president has begun selecting his appointees and we need to support him in that regard. If we don’t rally behind the president, we might lose the trust of the people and that will work against us. Our constituents are monitoring us in Parliament and we don’t have to let them down”, he stated.
