The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tano South who doubles as the Chairman for the Parliamentary select committee on Local government, Benjamin Yeboah Sekyere has debunked rumor indicating that he has been sacked from parliament due to his age and qualification.
He explains that the 1992 constitution of the country does not have any requirement for persons above 18years who are contesting for the Member of Parliament (MP’s) position.
According to the MP, the decision for the authorities at the parliament to appoint him as the chair for the Local government committee is a clear indication of the knowledge he has to lead the electorate of Tano South.
Mr. Yeboah Sekyere made this known when he delivered an address at a durbar of chiefs and people in Techimantia in the Tano South Municipality of the Brong Ahafo Region when his outfit presented some educational items and cut sod for the construction of an ultra modern Police station.
The Chairman for the Parliamentary select committee on Local government, Benjamin Yeboah Sekyere further called on members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to make their voice be heard in the municipality as their number outweighs that of the members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
