NDC-Western/North Blasts Dr. Kwaku Afriyie For Abysmal Performance

The Regional Communication Directorate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Western /North Region has lambasted the member of Parliament for Sefwi Wiawso constituency, Dr. Kwaku Afriyie for abysmal performance.  The communication department of the great NDC in the region noted with concern how inept the honourable Member of Parliament for the area has become.   According to Mr. Sam Jerome, Regional communication officer, Western/North, on Thursday 13th June, 2019, the dismissed Western Regional Minister (Dr. Kwaku Afriyie) granted an interview with Sefwi Wiawso local based radio station (Uniik fm 101.1)  in relation to his abysmal performance in the survey conducted by University of Ghana.  In that said survey, he was the worst performing MP in the newly created Western North region.   Sam Jerome further maintained that, It is however instructive to note that the survey by the university of Ghana isn’t the first time the MP has been fingered in doing worse in the constituency.  He revealed that, last year, a survey was conducted  by the Odikro of the area of which most of the constituents spoke against the non performance of their MP which they said is worrisome.   Sam Jerome hinted that in his response to a question posed by the journalist of Uniik fm, as to what occasioned his abysmal performance, he narrated unwarranted and needless reasons which he said contributed to his poor performance in the latest survey by the University.  MP’s questions  1. He questioned the sample size and methodology as not been reflective.2. He argued that the opposition MPs have no other portfolio except for been an MP.3. He cited someone like Hon Akandoh as doing nothing than been an MP. 4. He argued he is on Health Committee in parliament and so on. Sam noted, considering these reasons, one can say without equivocation that the MP is just lazy and not apt for the job.  It could be recalled that, that same person accused the former MP for the area (Hon. Evans Aidoo) as not performing based on a survey by Odikro which put him in a similar situation even though he was then a regional minister for the Western region. The question is what has changed? It is also imperative to note that as at the time of the survey, the Hon MP has been dismissed by the President as the Western Regional Minister so there again what caused his poor performance? ‘Is it not surprising when the Hon MP says he belongs to certain committees thus making his work tiddeous? Let me say that on that same health committee, the Hon Akandoh he cited is the ranking member who is more busier than just a member like Hon Dr Afriyie yet he scored higher. No one can say a sample size of 27,000 voters is small. No! It is big enough to make a clear determination. The MP is simply not good and apt for the job. We are therefore calling on the people of Sefwi Wiawso to massively vote against him come 2020 God willing’. He concluded. /Ayisah Foster
