The National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B) has hit back at the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) following their criticism of government’s digitalization drive.
The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia days ago held a lecture at the Ashesi University to delineate an array of digital policies being implemented by the government to drastically reduce the inefficiencies and corruption in public services delivery; enhance domestic revenue mobilisation; improve efficiency in the health sector; provide financial inclusion and a cash-lite economy among other things.
The NDC has however been criticising him wondering why he has abandoned economics to pursue digitalization.
The National Communications Officer of the party, Sammy Gyamfi even questioned how Dr Bawumia’s lectures on digitisation will reducing the ballooning fuel prices and other amenities.
In response however, Nana B cautioned the NDC to desist from exposing their “ignorance” on the subject matter.
“It’s quite shocking that the NDC 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,” Nana B said.
He added that “it’s trite knowledge that the NDC is incompetent in the field of digital technology”.
“In 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”.
