THERE CAN’T BE DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT PEACE IN GHANA: MP
By Fatima Adam
The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Abokobi-Madina constituency, Alhaji Amadu Sorogho has reiterated the need for Ghanaians to embrace peace before, during and after the December general elections.
He noted that: “there can’t be development without peace and that peace should be the priority of all Ghanaians.”
“Whether you are a president, radio station owner or a messenger, you need peace to help in achieving your goals,” he stressed.
The Abokobi-Madina legislature made this observation during an interaction with his constituents on the need to maintain the peace that the country was enjoying.
The event was the second time Alhaji Sorogho was reaching out to his community where he appealed to them to live in peace with one another.
He noted that “politics is not war” explaining that if two people are vying for a position, it is only normal for one of the contestant to win and for the other to accept defeat.
Alhaji Sorogho pledged to conduct clean and issue-based campaigns so as to retain the seat for the NDC in the upcoming elections.
To this end, the MP called for full cooperation and assistance from members of the constituency to help champion the development of the densely populated area.
Alhaji Sorogho also touched on some development challenges facing the area especially the perennial water crisis and assured the constituents that he was determined to find lasting solution to the problem.
According to him, he has initiated the constructing of six bore holes to provide potable water for the Madina municipality.
Former Minister for Education, Mrs Betty Mould- Iddrisu said the response of Ghanaians was telling them that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has come to stay for 2016 and beyond, adding that “now every part of Ghana has experienced development.”
She noted that the peace in Ghana cannot be attained by one individual but through the contribution of every single Ghanaian. “Saying the unprecedented achievements of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over three years has never happened in Ghana”.
