Benard Okoe-Boye, a former New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku has explained why he opted to buy a pickup with his mp car loan while his colleagues were buying V8s.
According to him, the need to run a transparent administration in the constituency meant that he came down to the level of all his constituents in order to better relate with them. The former deputy minister for Health enumerated a number of steps he took in his regard including lobbying for road projects, running medical outreaches and modestly opting for a pickup.
“that is why I did not go in for V8 with my car loan, I got a pickup and it was transparent. In fact, when I started using it all four windows were transparent, but break-ins were happening because people could see what in the car, so it was the back glasses that were tinted so when I am driving, you see me”
He continues that he refused to have a personal driver and security because it put off when they want to approach their mp.
