Inusah Fuseini, Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, has admitted that he hasn’t been able to do much for his constituents.
The National Democratic Congress, NDC, legislator indicated that he feels disappointed over the fact that he could not bring more developmental projects to his people within his tenure as their representative in Parliament
Mr. Fuseini made this remark in an interview monitored by Asempanews.com on Eyewitness News, while addressing a number of issues in connection with challenges in his constituency.
“I’m disappointed that I was not able to do more. Tamale started as a district, went on to be a Municipal area and now it is a Metropolitan area. The classification is not consistent with the level of infrastructure there. In
Tamale town itself, my constituency which is the heart of Tamale, you will still see dusty roads, areas where the drains are not there, areas that are dark, and so I wish I could have done more for my constituency,” he said.
The parliamentarian, who observed that he could have done much more for the people, disclosed that he would not seek re-election at the end of his term in 2020.
He first disclosed plans to back out of upcoming elections on June 30, 2018, at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium where he was invited to address party members on the need to embrace unity after the just ended constituency primaries.
“I am the second MP to have served Tamale Central Constituency for a long time, so I have decided; that I, Lawyer Inusah, shall not contest the position again when it is time for primaries for 2020 elections”, he is quoted to have said.
Inusah Fuseini entered Parliament in 2006 through a by-election and has served on various committees of Parliament including Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs.
He’s also been a deputy minister and a substantive Minister at different times under various NDC administrations.
