YEN.com.gh readers have expressed their concerns over the performances of their Members of Parliament (MPs).
In a survey conducted on the official Facebook page of YEN.com.gh, the readers mention the names of their respective MPs and how they are faring in their constituencies.
From many of the views sampled, it is clear that Ghanaians are not pleased with the performance of their Members of Parliament.
The Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, Sophia Karen Ackuaku, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, and other Members of Parliament have all been lambasted by some members of their constituencies who believe that they are doing nothing.
Meanwhile, the likes of Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, Okudzeto Ablakwa, Alex Agyekum of Mpohor Wasa East, have been adjudged as some of the best performing Members of Parliament.
One of the readers by name Paa Kwesi said the first time he heard the voice of his MP, Thomas Ampem Nyarko of Asuogyaman Constituency, was the time he was asking for his salary to be paid, adding that he has not heard his voice ever again on the floor of Parliament since then.

Maxwell Paa Kraikue: “Hon. Alex Agyekum is my Member of Parliament for Mpohor Wasa east district. He is doing all is work as MP to the district. He donated street light bulbs, health facilities and other items needed by the district .. He is still on his feet doing his work with the DCE.”
Afasunudzi Edwin: “My mp is Sophia Karen Ackuaku at Obom Domeabra constituency. Ever seen she won the election no single project has been done, one yr down the line the only project she executed is to celebrate her gargantuan victory in the 2016 election living the road in deplorable state. Infact she's the worst mp we've ever had in the history of our constituency.”
Benedicta Selase: “Hon. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuye is my MP...I am very happy with his work he did,is doing and will STILL do most kids are being helped in school, tertiary, secondary,basic and even technical...just one amongst the many for now.”

MP's common fund..nill, he is very corrupt beyond measure ..I just tune my TV set off his channel anytime I see him..most of his constituents are very disappointed in him.”
Godwin Nutsi: “Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa a.k.a. North Tongu Messiah a.k.a. Torgbe Worgbedzi. Infact he is God given. I am not an NDC sympathiser but I love Ablakwa. He promises and delivers. He has elevated North Tongu to another height. May God grant him long life and abundant wisdom.”
