Kumbugu MP Touches Hearts Of Constituents
One common attribute of most politicians is the fact that they usual fail to honour their campaign promises to their constituents. But, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu, Moses Amadu Yahaya, seems quite exceptional, as he keeps touching the hearts of his constituents with an array of development interventions.
While some politicians, especially MPs, are having it tough dealing with incessant attacks and criticisms from their constituents over their non-performance and failure to honour campaign promises, Moses Amadu Yahaya continues to receive commendations from traditional authorities and members of his constituency.
According to a group of youth from the Kumbungu District, led by one Nabilla Alhassan, their incumbent MP was the best representative they had ever had since time immemorial, especially, with his strong passion towards the promotion of development.
They indicated that Mr. Moses Yahaya, before his election as MP, was one of the proud sons of Kumbungu, who prioritised the development of the area with the provision of pipe borne water to 12 communities, 136 communities with boreholes, footbridges to connect some communities in the oversea areas, connected 7 communities with electricity, organised free vacation classes for students, clean up exercises for communities, and also provided micro-finances to several women groups in the area.
All these projects, according to the youth, were made possible through the lobbying skills of Mr. Moses Amadu Yahaya.
They indicated that the MP had been concerned about the plight of the people in the constituency, because he had been an Assembly Member of the area before, and was fully aware of most of the problems facing the people.
Since his assumption of office, Mr. Moses Yahaya, the youth indicated, had been spearheading the construction of the deplorable Tamale-Kumbungu road, as well as other feeder roads in the district to promote economic activity.
The group, which promised to support the MP in all his endeavours, noted that Mr. Moses Yahaya now carried due responsibilities as MP and District Chief Executive, since the Kumbungu District, which is one of the recently carved districts, does not have a District Chief Executive yet.
They said that the MP recently connected the campus and classrooms of the Kumbungu Senior High School with electricity to promote effective teaching and learning, especially for students at the night.
He also provided electricity bulbs for some classrooms of Junior High Schools in the district to encourage the students to study at night, rather than roaming the streets or attending discos.
Apart from that, the MP has also donated brand new standby generators to eight chiefs in the district, including the Kumbu-naa, Alhaji Abu Iddrisu.
Before the donation, the Paramount Chief of Kumbungu, Naa Abu Iddrisu, described the MP, during his visit to the Chief’s palace, as the real hope and beacon of development for the people in the area.
In a related development, Moses Amadu Yahaya, on Thursday October 10 2013, donated four brand new Dell flat screen computers and accessories to the District Health Directorate and the District Education Directorate to enhance data management and administrative work.
The donation of the computers to the Health Directorate was made possible after the MP was hinted about the stealing of the only computer at the office of the District Health Director by thieves.
But, the MP managed to make provision for the Education Directorate, which was also in dire need of such a facility.
The computers were received by the Kumbungu District Coordinating Director, Mr. Charles Akurugu Ayuune, for presentation to the Health and Education Directors.
The District Director of Health Services, Hajia Hadjaara Haruna, commended the MP for the unexpected gesture, and also thanked him for his passion about health issues.
She complained that the District Health Directorate was faced with several challenges, especially inadequate health facilities, lack of logistics and means of transport to carry out essential duties.
Surprisingly enough, the Kumbungu MP instantly released his personal Nissan pick-up with registration number GE 423 Z to the Kumbungu District Health Directorate to support referral cases and other operations in the health sector.
He was confident that the vehicle would help reduce maternal mortality, and the unnecessary delays in the transfer of patients to the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
The MP promised to lobby the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health for the provision of an Ambulance to the district.
