A non-profit Organisation called “Action Movement Youth Volunteers (AMYV) has schooled the Eastern Regional First Vice Chairman of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Umar Bodinga on the differences between the duties of a Parliamentarian and MMDCE.
AMYV indicated Alhaji Bodinga granted Somanya-based radio station, Rite FM an interview to expose his ‘ignorance’ about the functions of an MP and MMDCEs’ which in their view he should have known better.
In a statement issued at Somanya in the Eastern Region and copied National Tymes, the non-profit Action Movement Youth Volunteers (AMYV) rejoined to the interview of March 20, 2021 of the Alhaji Bodinga, granted Rite FM.
According to AMYV, in the interview, the Eastern Regional first NPP Vice Chairman, Alhaji Bodinga made the allegation against the four Krobo MPs describing them as MPs who lack leadership skills and this led to poor development in their various constituencies.
The convenor of the youth group, Moses Tettey Dometey aka Bola Ray Jnr opined that when it comes to achievements, the NPP government does not come near the achievements of the NDC in the Krobo area.
He stated that Alhaji Umar Bodinga should have been the last individual to come so low to maliciously degrade the hardworking MPs in the four krobo constituencies.
Below is the full statement
AT YOUR AGE AND POSITION IN THE NPP, YOU CANNOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE DUTIES OF A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT AND AN MMDCE?
We of the non-profit Action Movement Youth Volunteers
wish to rejoin to an interview of 20th March, 2021 the NPP Eastern Regional First Vice Chairman, Mr. Umar Budinga, granted the Somanya- based radio station, Rite FM.
In the interview, Mr. Umar made this allegation against the four Krobo MPs describing them as MPs who lack leadership skills and thereby causing low development in their various constituencies.
To set the record straight, it saddens our hearts when individuals like Mr. Umar come so low just to degrade our hardworking MPs in the four krobo constituencies.
When it comes to achievements, the NPP government does not come near the achievements of the NDC in the Krobo area.
We want Mr Umar to respond to the following questions:
(1) Does Mr. Umar know the duties of Members of Parliament?
(2) Does Mr. Omar know the responsibilities of MMDCEs in the various constituencies?
(3). Can Mr. Umar point out just three achievements of the NPP government in the last four years in the four Krobo constituencies?
(4). Does Mr Omar know we can easily point out hundreds of achievements of the NDC in the four krobo block constituencies?
(5) Who is responsible for the disbursement of citizens taxes allocated to development in the Constituencies? Is it the MPs or the MMDCEs?
(6) What are those allocated citizens taxes used for?
Further more, Mr. Umar stated that the NPP government has done alot for the Krobo area but the constituent are very ungrateful.
To us, the Mr Umar’s statement is an insult to the intelligence, dignity and integrity of the good people of the Krobo area.
The only Krobo area achievement of the NPP government in the last four years was when armed men were brought in to shoot Krobos for offences they had not committed.
Shooting Krobos at Somanya claiming that they refused to pay electricity bills where by some lost their lives, and hundred of people were seriously injured was the only achievement of the NPP government in Kroboland.
When Mr Omar reflects on the NPP government’s nebulous One District, One Factory, One Village One Dam, One Constituency, One million dollars, Planting for food and jobs, did the Krobo area get any share?
Hardship, difficulties, and burdens are what Krobos can remember the NPP and Akuffo Addo’s government for.
We urge Mr. Umar to retract his propaganda and palpable lies and apologise to thev Krobo area MPs and the good people of Krobo land.

President, Action Movement Youth Volunteers
