Majority Leader, Hon. Alban Bagbin, Sunday, gave a run-down of the achievement of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Parliament when he addressed over 68,000 party followers at the campaign launch of the umbrella family at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

He mentioned, in particular, the transformation in the lives of MPs as a result of the massive investments in infrastructure by the Mahama-led administration.

For instance, he said the investment in the magnificent State Tower Block, popularly known as Job 600, has brought a lot change in the lives of MPs that they no longer use their car boots as offices to conduct their business.

“The Job 600 whose restructuring was started by His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings could not be completed by the eight years of the NPP regime. His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has used just a few years to complete the magnificent Job 600 for the offices of the Members of Parliament”.

“Members of Parliament have got their lives completely changed. The Members of Parliament no longer use their car boots as offices. The Members of Parliament now have sufficient places to work in. And the Deputy Speaker of South Africa testified that that is the best Parliament that she has ever visited in Africa”, he noted.

That aside, he said President Mahama has also made available some financial support for Members of the Legislature to buy stationary and take care of the administrative cost of their offices.

This achievement, he reiterated, is non-comparable, believing that the NDC stands tall among all the political parties that have expressed interest in contesting the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
