We, members of “Stand Up For Bagbin” who believe, trust and support the leadership, competence and integrity of our father and mentor, the able Majority Leader, Hon. Alban S.K Bagbin, deem it appropriate to congratulate him for the singular achievement of being adjudged the best MP for the third time. Hon. Bagbin has earned our endless admiration by his humility, discipline, diligence and results oriented hard work as a leader and MP. We take this great opportunity to congratulate him for winning the 2015 overall best MP with an outstanding score of 97.3 percent.
For us in “Stand Up For Bagbin”, it does not come to us as a surprise because we are talking about a political persona with vast experience and an enviable record of demonstrable achievements. We must note that this is not the first time the committed, hardworking and performing Member of Parliament has won such impressive ratings and awards.
In recent past, Africa Watch Magazine rated him A+ the highest score of that year and in another year, the same magazine rated him A+ jointly with the Minority Leader Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu. He also won the best Minister of the year award when he was the Minister of Health in 2012. FAKs Investigative Services has rated him the overall best MP in 2015.
One significant award, which dominated international headlines for weeks in the year 2015 is the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association award. This award was in recognition of his immense contribution to the growth and sustenance of Parliamentary democracy in the Commonwealth, as a member of the Executive Committee of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.
Hon. Alban Bagbin is indeed a man of widely acclaimed repute. Coming from a very humble background, he has passion for fairness, equality and the interest of the ordinary Ghanaian. This has engendered love, trust and admiration from the Ghanaian populace. From the streets of Accra to the most remote areas of this country, he has become a household name for his wit, boldness and brevity in the business of Parliament. At his constituency, he plays an anchoring role in the development of the area. He often uses his personal resources to provide facilities for the benefit of various communities in the constituency. He has paid school fees for countless brilliant but needy students to achieve their dreams. This does not only change the lives of the individual beneficiaries for the better but also the entire members of their families.
We want to use this opportunity to appeal to the youth and fellow constituents of the Nadowli-Kaleo constituency to rally behind Hon. Alban Bagbin, the record making and 2015 overall best MP to continue to improve on the conditions, infrastructure and the living conditions in the constituency to achieve optimum human resource development. Hon. Bagbin is a giant oak tree not only for the people of the Nadowli- Kaleo Constituency, but also the nation as a whole.
We further call on the NDC fraternity in the Nadowli-Kaleo Constituency to cleave together to enhance the strength and invincibility of the party. Let us put behind us the pain of the November 21 Parliamentary primaries and forge ahead together to victory. We reiterate the cliché that the interest of the party is above that of any individual or group of individuals.
We acknowledge that Hon. Bagbin achieved this feat on the motherly shoulders of the great NDC Party. We will therefore do everything legal and democratic to enhance the health of the party in the constituency and the Upper West Region. We call on all committed members of the party to do the same.
Hon. Bagbin, Gare banye!!
NDC, the Best
