North Tongu Assembly members boycott meetings over motorbikes

Assembly members of the North Tongu District have resolved to boycott all business of the House and Committee sittings until the Presiding Member and the District Chief Executive (DCE) of the area ensure there is a fair supply of motorbikes for the Assembly members in the district.

The North Tongu local area representatives claim they have been left out of the exercise and served notice in a letter copied to the Volta Regional Minister, Archibald Letsa. The members warned that any attempt to dishonour the notice would not yield a desirable result.

The National Association of Local Authorities of Ghana (NALAG) released 1000 motorbikes for distribution to Assembly members in the Volta Region and has pleaded with the Assembly members to exercise restraint as all distribution anomalies are rectified.

Mawuli Vorsah, the spokesperson for the aggrieved Assembly members, said they felt the leadership of the assembly had no plans for them as far as the motorbikes were concerned, and had decided to boycott all assembly and committee meetings until their concerns were dealt with.

“We feel they don’t have any plans for us as far as the motorbikes are concerned, we decided to boycott the assembly’s activities until the motorbikes are delivered to us,” he stressed.

Wisdom Seneadza, the Volta Regional President of NALAG and the DCE for Afadzato South Assembly, explained that some challenges account for the delay in the distribution exercise saying, “There have been some technical challenges in the process of delivery and I plead with the irate members to exercise patience as we resolve the issue.” -classfmonline.com
