Don’t Fight …Bawumia Raps MPs, MMDCEs
VICE PRESIDENT Mahamadu Bawumia has admonished Members of Parliament (MPs) and Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) to always stay at peace with one another.
He observed with gross concern, situations whereby tension and conflict existed between some MPs and MMDCEs in the country, and described the development as a sad one which can hamper national development.
Dr. Bawumia therefore entreated them to always embrace peace and work together as people with a common destiny, so that the country’s growth could be expedited.
“In situations where there were tension between MPs and MMDCEs, that community suffered in terms of development as the people that are supposed to develop the area were rather fighting”.
Dr. Bawumia was speaking at the opening of Governance and Leadership Workshop for MPs and MMDCEs at the Golden Tulip City Hotel in Kumasi on Monday.
According to him, without unity and peace it would be extremely difficult for the country to attain its developmental goals.
Touching on other pressing issues, the vice president said the NPP administration is committed to implementing “new things”, never done in the annals of the country’s history, to help expedite national growth, and cited the issuance of the national identity cards and introducing digital address systems as some of them.
Dr. Bawumia said “digital reformation” is very crucial to national development, indicating that the government is committed to deepen national growth through digital reformation and other policies.
The programme was under the theme: ‘Enhancing Leadership for Good Governance’ and was organized by the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs.
