Angry NDC Youth target MP
Some youths of the Odododiodio Constituency in the Greater Accra Region are planning to carry out a series of attacks against Hon. Tackie Commey, the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.
According to the angry youths, the attacks are intended to make the MP wake up from his slumber and live up to his legislative duties in the Constituency.
They are also threatening to make the four-year term of the MP not only unpleasant,but also to make life unbearable for him, if he fails to live to his duties as the peoples' representative in the legislative assembly.
Information pieced together by TODAY indicates that Hon. Tackie Commey is quickly losing his popularity in the area, especially among the youths. According to many of the constituents, this decline in good favor has the potential of costing him his seat come next general elections in 2012.
“Hon. Tackie Commey must avail himself of election history in Odododiodio Constituency; he might have pulled through in the parliamentary elections, but I can promise that if this is how he will be attending to the needs of the constituents, then we will vote him out in 2012,” said one of the youth in the area.
This reporter learnt that the youth have lost faith in the abilities of the MP to deliver as he promised them during the 2008 electioneering campaign, and currently they don't want to have anything to do with him.
“Hon Commey has really disappointed us and he should bear in mind that four years is just around the corner,” said youth Atta Mensah.
