The outgoing Member of Parliament, Dr Bernard Okoe Boye, a week after failing to retain the Ledzokuku parliamentary seat has avowed his commitment to public service by returning to his post at the Lekma Hospital in Teshie.
The Deputy Health Minister was seen in his white coat attending to patients who visited the facility in his first public appearance post election Monday.
In a Facebook post, Dr Okoe Boye noted that even though “some of my staff members were happy to see me doing fine, others were “surprised at my activity having assumed that not winning the Parliamentary election meant away with community service”.
He further said “the joy a true Leader experiences does not lie in the position he holds but in the service his people receive”, hence, reaffirming his stance to avail himself to the service of his community.
“I thank God that you do not have to necessarily hold a position to assist others to experience a better world. Because He lives, we can face tomorrow,” Okoe Boye added.
Dr Okoe Boye lost the Ledzokuku seat to NDC’s Benjamin Ayiku Narteh in the just-ended December 7 polls.
