The Former Deputy Minister for food and agriculture and Member of Parliament for Tano South Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, Dr Hannah Louisa Bissiw have noted that, Ghana Card registration and its brouhaha is not what Ghana needs right now.
She reiterated that, though she has a passport and birth certificate, she would not register for it since that is not what Ghana needs.
According to Dr. Hannah, “this government promised us so many things. There are so many refuse dumps but no place to dispose this. Go and see cities like Accra, Kumasi, Tamale, you will know what I’m saying is true.
She again emphasized on the drainage system and flooding issues pertaining to the country.
“Our drainage system and flooding issues, but we say we have Sanitation Minister. Millions of cedis was used to set up this Ministries merely anything is being done. We want the dirt to be clear, we need cleaner cities. The government should at all this rather focusing on this Ghana Card”.
Speaking on Pink FM’s Current Affairs Programme, “Omanbapa Kasa” today, 28th June, 2018, Dr. Bissiw stated the New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by Nana Addo should concentrate on delivering on his One-District-One-Factory promise and also give clean water, since residents in Tema are complaining about shortage of water.
However, she gave the point if the Majority thinks the Voter’s ID card is bloated or having ghost names then indeed they should resign since it wasn’t Ghanaians who voted for them. The Former MP indicated on the show that, most Ghanaians being eligible voters voted because of the Voter’s ID card.
The former MP emphasized that, “corruptible acts should be looked at. What happened to the Cocaine, which turned into Cassava flour (Konkonte), traders are now complaining, fake drugs are being given to kill armyworms”.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi issues. Therefore, our focus should not be about having the Ghana Card, to show you are a Ghanaian. This is because we already have a Voter’s ID card to prove that”, she further stated.
The Minority in Parliament has asked for the inclusion of the Voter’s ID card as a requirement to obtain the Ghana Card. Dr Hannah Bissiw has supported this opposition in the note that, not all Ghanaians have the Passport and the Birth Certificate.
