Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa has presented 30 Laptops as donation to all Assembly and Presiding members of the North Tongu District Assembly.
Ablakwa explained that, this modest contribution is to help them carry out their important local government functions more efficiently as they improve their service delivery in respective electoral areas to their collective benefit.
Adding that, He has in the recent past made similar laptop donations to teachers, nurses and doctors.
He took the opportunity to take the Assembly Members through the People’s Manifesto, particularly, the sections relating to local government and explained to them how a John Mahama Presidency from January 7, 2021 if voted into power will pay all Assembly Members; increase the DACF from 5% to 7.5%; empower chiefs to appoint 30% members as a departure from current government appointments and other raft of far reaching local government policy reforms which the NDC as local government pioneers is committing to.
