Honorable Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority Leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South Constituency, said he finds no difficulty in commending the President, Nana Akuffo Addo, and Vice-president, Dr. Mamamadu Bawumia for successes they have chalked in the digitization of the country. Speaking to Bernard Avle on the "Points of View"on Citi TV, today September 28, the former Minister of Communication said that though Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-led government deserves praises and commending for what they have done in terms of digitization, the infrastructure upon which they achieved that was built by the previous administration. For instance, the Minority Leader claimed that the first sim registration model was laid by him in Parliament, and where the NPP deserves credit is mainstreaming it into a national ID.
"Under NDC, Pro JE Mills through president John Dramani Mahama, the fourth president of the fourth republic, a lot of investment went into infrastructure and broadband investment including even connectivity to our universities. Mainstreaming it into a national ID is relevant. If that's what you say I should commend Akuffo Addo and Bawumia, I have no difficulty doing that", he said.
He added that despite what the New Patriotic Party has been achieved in digitizing the economy of Ghana, the nation still has a long way to go. According to him, given how other nations on the African continent like Rwanda and South Africa have been able to streamline ICT in all aspects of their lives, Ghana's story still has a long way to go, and that there is more room for improvement.
"Ghana still has a problem if you compare us to Rwanda, and South Africa, in terms of mainstreaming ICT into all aspects of our national lives. So it is a journey uncompleted yet", he added.
