Member of Parliament (MP) for Bolgatanga Central Constituency at the Upper East Region Isaac Adongo has been honoured for becoming a star and bringing honour to his hometown, chiefs and people through his work as an MP.

Isaac Adongo was honoured at a recently-held funeral of his mother, Mrs Mary Abane Adongo. He was praised for the dignity and respect his education, knowledge and work have brought to his people.

According to Classfmonline.com, Isaac Adongo, who is a first-timer in Parliament came from a very humble background.

Isaac's mother was a single mum who was able to fend for him through the sales from a petty trade. She sold kola nuts and cigarettes at the Obuasi Central bus terminal to take care of him through school.

Adongo himself says he came from a poor but blessed home.

The gentleman who is quite young in politics has gained widespread recognition and admiration within his National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Adongo has been making waves with how he tackles economic and financial issues that come up in the house as well as on the national scene.

He has, on several occasions, taken on Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on topical economic issues. Mr Adongo even gave the Vice-President the moniker ‘Walewale Adam Smith’.

As a result of her commitment to the cause, Williams won the Guinness World Record for having the longest nails. It's proving a tough task to dethrone Williams as YEN.com.gh understands that she's retained her crown once again.
