“I am riding bicycle to Parliament not for myself but suffering Ghanaians”---Ras



Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak has said he is embarking on riding bicycle to Parliament not to seek attention for himself but to draw attention of the suffering of the rest of Ghanaians. 

According to the Kumbungu legislator there is rising cost of living and rising cost of fuel and as privileged as he is to serve is constituent he needs to draw the attention of government to the plight of the average Ghanaian worker.

“We are not in Parliament to only do legislative work, we represent people and we should be putting their issues out there”, he lamented.

He noted on Tuesday morning he would be in Parliament by 9:00am with his bicycle.

In an interview he pointed out that as representative of the people he has some Ghanaians who come to him, weep and say they cannot meet the basic needs, how times are hard for them surviving is becoming difficult; government needs to give attention to this situation. 

Mr. Ras Mubarak also noted that it is not everybody who would master the courage to voice out the suffering, “I want to send out the message of the suffering real Ghanaian to government”.
 
Some have to go to work with their last money and come home hungry, I have no other choice if you can't ride a bicycle to raise awareness. For the issue to be top on the agenda then I do not have any reason to represent people, we would do this and tomorrow would take care of itself, he lamented.
