The member of parliament for Daffiama-Bussie-Issa constituency, Hon Sebastian Sandaare was yesterday, 12th May, 2019 visiting some parts of the Daffiama-Bussie-Issa constituency, calming down nerves of party executives and supporters that have been overly devasted over the gruesome murder of Mr. Richard Bayiviele Puolabong, popularly called “Chairman water water” who was the constituency chairman for National Democratic Congress in the Daffiama-Bussie-Issa constituency.
Interacting with the party supporters who massed up at the Daffiama area council, the member of parliament admonished all to exercise constraints as investigation is being conducted by the Ghana Police Service. He added ” I am ready to support the security agencies to conduct a vigorous investigation and to possibly arrest the perpetrators of this destardly act”.
Speaking while in tears, Hon Sandaare mentioned that the chairman was killed in his line of duty for the party and the entire NDC in the constituency is deeply devastated. “A great party leader is gone.” he lamented. He again encouraged members of the National Democratic Congress not to give up what they started with Chairman Water before his untimely death adding that the only way that the soul of the late chairman would rest is when justice is delivered in this matter and when members continue to work to bring the NDC back to power because he left an unfinished business for the love of party, country and the people of Daffiama-Bussie-Issa.
Many of the supporters and party leaders around could not hold themselves in tears. Many were weeping in pain.
The former District Chief Executive, Hon Fedelis Zumakpee, Former Member of Parliament, Hon Mathias Puozaa, Hon Batholomy, and all the NDC Constituency Executives for Daffiama-Bussie-Issa were all present.
