Ghanaian politician and member of parliament for the Ningo-Prampram constituency have replied to the #nameandshame campaigners who made it a point to shame MPs who have neglected the development of their constituencies after making numerous promises during the 2020 elections.
Every election year, party aspirants who lure the electorates to vote for them often make so many promises but after gaining power, less are seen of them, not to talk of the developmental projects they promised prior to the elections.
In a recent Twitter trend, netizens began a new hashtag that was used to speak about the lackadaisical attitude of MPs towards the fixing of problems in their respective constituencies.
These problems range from poor roads to flooding to economic hardship. These individuals are sharing photos of their MPs alongside photos of the problems that exist and persist in their constituencies.
Reacting to the campaign against these MPs, Sam George mentioned that it is not his job as an elected MP to construct and fix roads but rather lobby for the Minister of Roads and Highways to come to their aid in the various constituencies.
He rather channelled the blame on the Minister of Roads stating that it is his rightful job to the work he was appointed for.
See his tweet below;
“Asking an MP to get roads fixed? For real? The #NameAndShame campaign must be backed by basic knowledge. My job is to lobby but you have a Minister for Roads & Highways. If you have any bile, spit it at him for that is his job. I have lobbied. He has failed. Hold him responsible”
