The Minority Leader in Ghana’s Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu has warned the electoral commission not to take the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for granted.
“We will not. And this time, let them dare that they will declare results, we will simultaneously declare and see what happens to the state even as we remain committed to the peace of the country. They should not take the NDC for granted this time around. We are committed to the Peace; we are committed to the democracy”, he said.
The Lawmaker explained that the EC deliberately failed to utilize budget allocations approved for it in 2018 and 2019 to build a credible and strong data centre just to turn around to claim the data centre is faulty.
“The electoral Commission in 2018 and 2019 failed to use the budget to build up a credible and strong data centre. That was deliberate .so you don’t wake up and say that there is a faulty data centre, it is faulty because you refused, deliberately to spend money dedicated and allocated for that purpose.”
He added “You cannot take ten months to b build an IT system for a Country. That is not a banking IT system or a Hospital IT system. You are building an IT system which comprises Data system, hardware and software. When will you test it?
Haruna Iddrisu said this Saturday when the Minority MPs as part of their three-day visit to Asuogyaman, joined the MP for the area, Thomas Ampem Nyarko, to graduate some 25 youth sponsored and trained in various vocations under the MP’s job creation initiative dubbed Thomas Ampem Nyarko Youth Skill Development and Empowerment Program.
