Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu, Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa, has made a donation of 30 laptop computers to all elected Assembly Members and the Presiding Member of the North Tongu District Assembly.
The donation, according to the lawmaker, is his “modest contribution” towards helping the assembly members carry out their important local government functions more efficiently as they improve their service delivery in their respective electoral areas for the collective benefit of the people they serve.
Hon. Ablakwa used the opportunity to take the Assembly Members through his party, the NDC’s Manifesto for election 2020 dubbed “The People’s Manifesto”. He took them through the sections of the manifesto that talk about local government and explained to them how his party’s flagbearer, John Mahama, if emerged victorious at this year’s elections slated for 7th December “will from January 7, 2021 pay all Assembly Members; increase the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) from 5% to 7.5%; empower chiefs to appoint 30% members as a departure from current government appointments and other raft of far reaching local government policy reforms which the NDC as local government pioneers is committing to.”
The Former Deputy Minister made this known in a Facebook post he made last night.
According to the MP who is campaigning to be retained in the august house of Parliament, similar donations had been made to teachers, nurses and doctors in the constituency.
