A performance appraisal survey on members of parliaments (MPs) has adjudged MP for Bolgatanga Central, Hon Isaac Adongo, as the best performing minority MP for 2017.
The survey, conducted by indigenous research and investigation company, FAKS Investigation Services, found that of the 3,702 respondents sampled, 90.1 percent of them scored Mr Adongo as the best performer among the () MPs on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He was followed by Hon Laadi Ayii Ayamba, MP for Pusiga, who scored scored 88.7 percent
Overall, the survey, which assessed the performance of some politicians and public servants in 2017, adjudged MP for Tamale South Constituency as the overall best MP in 2017.
FAKS Investigations said the survey was conducted between October and December and sought the opinions of Ghanaians as to which Ministers, Deputies, Regional Ministers, MPs, PROs, among others, had done exceptionally well and need to be recognised.
This is the sixth time that FAKS is announcing assessment results on the performance of politicians and public servants. Hon Adongo, although a first time MP had endeared himself to many Ghanaians, especially sympathisers of the opposition NDC, with his witty debates and superior arguments, on issues in the economy and governance.
His emergence as best performing minority MP makes it the first time that a representative of the Bolgatanga Central Constituency has been given such recognition. His predecessor and former MP, Hon Opam Brown Akolbire, was repeatedly ranked at the bottom in previous surveys.
Hon Adongo, a chartered accountant by profession, has been one of the few vocal MPs on the NDC side, taking on the government on a number issues bordering on its handling of the economy and governance.
It is understood that his approach to and understanding of issues, superior contribution to debates on the floor of Parliament and ability to proffer alternative policies in the year made him stand out among his peers.
