The minority leader, Haruna Idrisu has declared in parliament that he and the minority won’t stop demanding answers to the Ghana Card.
Last Saturday Parliament when parliament was about to go on a break, Haruna Idrisu on floor made some contributions to the affairs of policies and gave his last words about the Ghana Identification Card.
In other words, the amount of money that will be used for the Ghana card which is $1.2billion is expensive. Also, he being the minority leader will not stop demanding answers to the Card even if the Parliament is going on a break.
This is what he said “we in the minority have concern about the Ghana Card, we appreciate that we need a national identity system. An Identity system remains the national imperative for purpose of economic planning, for purposes of property plan but Mr. Speaker, we certainly cannot understand why it must cost the state $1.2billion to undertake. Therefore we demand an explanation from the executive”.
In the course of his report about the card, he made reference to the 1992 constitution on Article 42 and said that it allows us to be registered as voters when we are adults therefore just as the President is a product for the voter Identification Card. They see no reason why it cannot be included in the process.
Mr. Haruna Idrisu concluded his comments by thanking the Speaker of Parliament, staff and the corporation and support of his colleagues for the tremendous work done.
