Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel George Nartey has said the District Chief Executive (DCE) of the Assembly in his constituency is the best person to answer questions on how five percent of the common fund is spent on Persons with Disability (PWD).

According to the Ningo-Prampram legislator he receives only four point five percent of the total amount of common fund meant for the Assembly, the remaining funds are managed by the Assembly with five percent going to PWDs.

“I have no say in how the PWD funds are managed, I am an ex-officio member of the Assembly, but when people need school fees, they have to pay for health or street light they come to the MP”, he pointed out.

He made this remarks when journalist who toured his constituency wanted to know how come he is supporting a PWD with one thousand Ghana cedis (GHc 1,000) to buy recharged air time so that he can stop begging.

Mr. Samuel George Nartey revealed that most of his MPs common fund is geared towards supporting his constituents with their education, but his budget officer in the District had indicated to him that politically it is dangerous, because after four years people would want to see monumental structures and development that has his name on it.
