The Member of Parliament for Tain Constituency, Hon Sulemana Adama has stated that the people of Suame’s act against Honorable Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu showed clearly that the importance of a good road network cannot be discounted.
“You can’t discount the importance of road transport and especially interchanges for the productivity of this state.”
But sadly you have a vice president brandishing the Ghana card and telling Ghanaians that for us in Ghana, the Ghana card is more important than 1,000 interchanges. The people of Suame have demonstrated to the vice president that the interchange is more important than the Ghana card.
He was speaking on the AM Ghana show in relation to the comments made by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia at the Accra Business School under the theme: ‘The Role of Information Technology Education in the Government’s Digitalisation Agenda’ on Thursday, 14 July. The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, declared his choice for the Ghana card over road interchanges in the country’s quest for development.
According to the Chairman of the Economic Management Team, the national identity card, also known as Ghana Card, is more beneficial than the numerous interchanges constructed across the country.
“We have implemented a national identification system and today we have 16 million Ghanaians with unique identities and that is a major transformation. And sometimes a lot of people don’t even appreciate what the impact of the Ghana Card is.
“But if you gave me 1,000 interchanges and a Ghana Card, I will choose the Ghana Card because it is more impactful”
