The National Youth Organizer of the ruling NPP, Henry Nana Boakye, has taken a swipe at the NDC over its criticism of government’s agenda to use digitalisation to transform the economy.
In an interview with Joy News on Friday, Nana B, as he is popularly known, cautioned the opposition party to desist from exposing its ignorance on the subject.
He stated that “it’s quite shocking that the NDC that has proven, over time, to be clueless and bankrupt in knowledge and understanding of digitisation and digitalisation could gather confidence to speak against the unprecedented digital infrastructure being built by this government to make life very simple and easy for Ghanaians.”
The Vice President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, held a public lecture at Ashesi University to delineate an array of digital policies implemented by the government.
The projects and policies he stated are to reduce the inefficiencies and corruption in public Services delivery drastically; enhance domestic revenue mobilisation; improve efficiency in the health sector; provide financial inclusion and a cash-lite economy, among other things.
Following the lecture, the NDC has been responding to the issues raised by Dr Bawumia.
However, for a section of the public, including the NPP, NDC’s responses have been ragged, uncoordinated, conflicting and have drifted into personal attacks on the person of the Vice President.
Nana B stated that “it’s trite knowledge that the NDC is incompetent in the field of digital technology. For example, in the 2016 and 2020 elections, they couldn’t put up a system to collate their results — such a basic exercise that a first-year IT student could have done with such ease, the incompetent NDC couldn’t do it”.
The Youth Leader of the NPP has thus advised Ghanaians to be wary of the plain lies and fabrications of the NDC directed at discrediting government policies that have far-reaching benefits for the ordinary Ghanaian.
“This government has been people-centred, and every single policy we have implemented has brought comfort to the citizenry.
“Today, Ghanaians can sit in the comfort of their homes to renew their NHIS, open bank account and so on. Therefore, I entreat Ghanaians to support government to deliver on its mandate,” Nana B added.
