The Assembly member for Kulaa- Gbalahi Electoral Area in the Sagnarigu Municipality, Mohammed Muniru has hailed the Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan S Suhuyini for the several development projects he has undertaken in the area.
According to him, he considers the MP as their hero, as he has done what the Sagnarigu Municipal Assembly has not been able to do, since the Acting Municipal Chief Executive, Hajia Mariam Iddrisu took over leadership in the Municipality.
He said the MP has not only assisted to get the community a health center but also supported in the sectors of education and agriculture.
Mr Muniru claimed that unlike the MP, the Sagnarigu MCE has not commissioned a single project in his Electoral Area, saying that if the MCE had done half of what the MP is doing, his Electoral Area would not be the same.
“If the MCE could do half of what MP is doing, my Electoral Area would not be the same… Since I came in 2019, Hon Mariam has never commissioned a single project in my Electoral Area since then” the Assemblyman told Justicefmonline.com on Wednesday, September 1.
He was speaking after the MP presented medical equipment to the Gbalahi and Ward K Health Centers.
The equipment included beds, fridges, furniture, water dispensers, surgery equipment among several others.
Mr Muniru said as an MP, Alhaji Suhuyini’s duty was to represent the people of Tamale North in parliament to enact laws for the Ghanaian people, adding that he as an Assembly man is left with no other option than to chase him with their development challenges because the Sagnarigu Municipal Assembly is simply not ready to address them.
“It is not the work of the MP to embark on development projects, theirs is to enact laws but ask yourself why have I left the person who is supposed to develop my Electoral Area while chasing the MP with our development issues? It’s because the Assembly and the MCE are aware of our challenges in this Electoral Area but she will not just work on them”he stressed.
“What Alhaji Suhuyini is doing and I am talking about it, it is not because I love him so much but we stand for people who are development oriented, if Hajia Mariam embarks on a single development project, I will project and hail her too but she just hasn’t ” Mr Muniru noted.
At a short ceremony to hand over the equipment to the Ghana Health Service, the Member of Parliament said the equipment are expected to improve the quality of healthcare delivery in the constituency.
“It is all because of our determination to see that health infrastructure and service are improved in the Tamale North constituency” he said.
Alhaji Suhuyini was hopeful that the equipment will be put to good use, stressing that, when that happens, it will encourage him and others to continue to come to the aid of the community.
“I also think that if this is put into good use will not just myself but other stakeholders and especially Non Governmental Organizations to come to the aid of this community, so it is my prayer that the community together with the other health professionals will put the facility and the logistics to good use” he stressed.
The Municipal Health Director, George Abraham underscored the importance of the equipment provided, noting that it “would’ve taken us a long time to get all these equipment”.
He assured that the equipment will be put to good use.
