The Member of Parliament for the Ho West Constituency, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah, has challenged school pupils and students to educate their peers and communities about the actual duties of a Member of Parliament (MP).
According to him, a lot of the citizens are of the view that it is the responsibility of an MP to develop their areas hence the need for students to help dispel that notion.
Bedzrah, who is also chairman of the Volta Caucus in Parliament made the call when pupils and students from the Tsito EP Basic and Junior High Schools visited the Parliament recently to acquaint themselves with the work of Parliament.
The MP encourage the pupils to be disciplined and eschew laziness in all their endeavours since that is the only panacea for the achievement of their life goals.
He also educated the pupils on parliamentary proceedings, composition of Parliament, the leadership of the House, the Standing Orders, among others.
The Ranking Member on the Government Assurance Committee of Parliament emphasized that the main duties of an MP is law making and not as a development agent, as has been the view of money.
He has therefore urged all the pupils to educate their parents and communities about the responsibilities of law makers.
Assistant Head Teacher of the school, Isaac Anlesinya, on behalf of the school and pupils thanked the MP for his words of inspiration and warm reception.
He assured of his outfits readiness to help the pupils educate their communities about the duties of Members of Parliament.
