Veep urges NDC MPs to work hard to deliver on manifesto

Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur has appealed to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament to remain focused and work hard on delivering on the party’s manifesto.

While commending them on their electoral victory, the Vice President said the hard work of the legislators would make them visible in the long run.

According to a release from the Office of the Vice President in Accra, the Vice President said this when he addressed a workshop for NDC Caucus in Parliament in Koforidua.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur said he recognized the daunting challenges that Members face and assured them that government was working hard to address them.

The statement said the vice president expressed happiness at the rate of work on offices for the MPs and expressed optimism that the Job 600 facility would be ready soon for their use.

He said it was important to build and strengthen a harmonious relation between the executive and the legislature and suggested that a liaison person should be appointed at the Presidency to act as a contact between the Executive and the Legislators.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur observed that as members of the ruling party, some critical decisions taken by government particularly within the first half of its tenure were bound to be unpopular and appealed to the MPs to stay committed to collaborating with the executive towards the fulfillment of the government’s pledge and promise to the citizenry in achieving the Better Ghana agenda.
