A former Member of Parliament for the Builsa North Constituency and New Patriotic Party (NPP) National Vice Chairperson aspirant, Agnes Asangalisa Chigabatia, has taken a swipe at the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), saying governance is a serious business.
She noted, governance is not ‘Makola Market’ where everybody and anybody can have access so the NDC should not think of coming back to power soon.
This was on the back of suggestions that the NDC is forming a formidable front to stage a come-back in 2020 should the government renege on its numerous promises.
Speaking on Onua FM’s Yen Nsem Pa Tuesday, May 15, Ms Chigabatia advised the NDC to watch the NPP accomplish many projects, indicating the NPP has come to stay and that it has what it takes to do so. She however maintained that it is too early for people to judge the Nana Akufo-Addo government.
She urged Ghanaians to exercise patience because “we have been in government for only a year and a half”. She noted even with the few months spent in government so far, they have been able to fulfill promises such as the Free SHS policy.
“Have patience because the NPP is working for the people”, she noted.
Agnes Chigabatia on Monday, May 14 filed her nomination to contest as NPP’s National Vice Chairperson, a position she will be vying against six other contenders.
Agnes Chigabatia was the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Builsa North Constituency in the Upper East Region from 2004 to 2008.
She was the Deputy Upper East Region Minister as well as the NPP Upper East Regional Chairperson from 2010 to 2012, becoming the first woman to be elected as regional chairperson.
She also was an active member of the NPP Upper East campaign team in 2016 and has also held many managerial positions in various institutions.
She believes her experience in all previous positions held – at both party and national levels – make her better placed for the new position she is aspiring for.
