The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has charged MPs on the Majority side of Parliament to continually arm themselves with the “great success stories and achievements” chalked by the Akufo-Addo administration to dismantle any propaganda and lies churned out by the opposition.
The Majority Caucus has also been urged to strengthen the bonds between Parliament and the Executive as the two work hand in hand to help fulfil the promises made to Ghanaians and further earn their trust to continue governing the nation.
Dr. Bawumia gave the advice at a workshop for the Majority Caucus and members of the Executive on Saturday August 28, 2021 at Mpraeso in the Eastern Region.
Reminding the MPs that they are an integral part of the success or failure of the Executive and by extension the NPP administration, Vice President Bawumia urged them to always remember the key communications role they play and work extra hard to respond appropriately to any attempt to downplay the achievements of the Akufo-Addo administration.
“The propaganda machinery of the NDC will be oiled using their representation in Parliament. Every conceivable government policy or intervention will be furiously attacked. They will question the government’s promises, they will question the government’s achievements and they will question government’s intentions. They will unleash these attacks both on the floor of Parliament and outside the floor.”
“There is no better group to respond to these attacks, to set the records straight and to match them “Boot-for-Chalewote” than the Majority Caucus of Parliament. Fortunately, we have enthusiastic leaders and members of the Majority Caucus and what is needed is the requisite cooperation and exchanges between you and the Executive,” he indicated.
