Northern Region MPs Are ‘Errand Boys’—Bugri Naabu


Outspoken Northern Regional Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu has taken a swipe at some Members of Parliament in the region, describing them as “errand boys”.

He claimed majority of MPs in the Northern Region who have been in the House for ages, still lack the parliamentary antics to lobby for projects for their constituencies.

He insinuated, “Our NDC Parliamentarians, they go and buy food and serve the rest of our Parliamentarians in this country: if I am not telling the truth the NDC MP is here go and ask him[referring to Thomas Nassah, MP for Gushegu].”

The NPP Northern Regional Chairman was addressing a large gathering on the occasion of the annual Linujil (Yam Festival) celebrated by the chiefs and people of Bunbong-Naayili, predominantly a Konkomba farming settlement in the Yendi Municipality.

He challenged the MPs in the region to let the voices of their constituents who are virtually poor be heard on the floor of parliament.

Daniel Bugri Naabu thus charged northern electorates to “change position” in 2016 by rejecting those he referred to as “incompetent MPs.”

According to him, it will be in the interest of the people in the region to vote for MPs who think more developmental.

He cited Deputy Minority leader, Hon. Dominick Nitiwul to buttress his point that the NPP have the men to deliver in Parliament.

“What I am going to tell you is that make sure come 2016, Konkomba area you vote for NPP massively so that your credibility and for people to recognize you will be restored.”

“Even NPP who is in minority, the Deputy Minority leader is a Konkomba, you all know that,” he boasted.

Even though the Northern Region contributes significantly to Ghana’s food basket, it also considered one of the poorest in the country.

This is one of the reasons the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) initiated the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) to help develop the area.
