Communication Bureau of Ablekuma Central Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC ) in the Greater Accra Region has launched a scathing attack at the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the area, Mr Ebenezer Nii Narh Nartey for publicly claiming the ownership of the social and infrastructure developmental projects and programmes being executed by the NDC during Prof John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills and John Dramani Mahama administration.
In a strong worded press statement signed and issued by the Communication Officer of Ablekuma Central Constituency of the NDC, Madam Vivian Sallah on Monday June 8, 2020, the NDC noted that it has come to the notice of the party in Ablekuma Central Constituency that Mr Nartey on Thursday June 4, 2020 granted an interview on Accra based Asempa FM, where he outlined some projects as his achievements.
The statement pointed out that the highly ineffective MP during the interview on the said station claimed without shame to have constructed some drainages and asphalted roads in some part of Abossey Okai, even though he knows the evidence on the ground does not support such blatant falsehood.
“This we wish to state without fear of equivocation that, the said projects the NPP MP claimed to have constructed is an achievement of the NDC and not his.
“It must be stated catergorically that, even though the said projects was started by the former President John Agyekum Kuffour’s administration, it was the Prof John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills and John Dramani Mahama administration that completed them,” the statement set the records straight.
As at the time of the completion of the said projects, the statement clarified that the Member of Parliament for the constituency was the NDC’s Hon Theophilus Tetteh Chai.
The statement pointed out that Mr Nartey’s claim to have developed every ward or electoral area within the constituency is also nothing but an absolute untruth.
The statement said the NPP MP was, deliberately peddled such statements to deceive unsuspecting constituents in Ablekuma Central and the numerous listeners who tuned in to listen to him.
The statement argued that “It is also shocking that a person who occupies an honourable position as an MP will intentionally throw falsehood into the air, that he has built a library in the constituency.”
The NDC in the statement challenged the said MP to show “us when he started the project, where the said library project is located and his source of funding for the library project he claims to have built.”
The statement further stated categorically without any iota of doubt that most, if not all the major developmental projects in Ablekuma Central Constituency were undertaken by the NDC under the erstwhile Mills Mahama administration and that, the falsehood, deliberate and blatant lies by Hon. Ebenezer Nii Narh Nartey must be disregarded and treated with that greatest contempt it deserves.
