The member Parliament for Bawku Central Hon. Mahama Ayariga has filed an urgent question to the Minister of State in charge of Public Procurement, Hon Adjoa Sarfo to provide details of the procurement process in respect of the Digital Address System recently launched by the vice president, Mahamud Bawumia.
It would be recalled that the Vice President Dr. Mahamud Bawumia and the NPP government has come under extreme pressure from well meaning Ghanaians over the quantum of Ghanaian tax payers’ money which has been expended on a GPS address system which many have described as outrageously high.
Hon. Mahama has been on records to have indicated that the Nana Addo-Bawumia government could have leverage on the opportunity provided by the initiative of a Ghanaian owned business enterprise, Zoomlion on a similar project, a situation which could have saved the nation some cash while encouraging and enhancing the capacity of such local initiatives.
The MP for Bawku Central Constituency who is a former Minister of Environment, Science and Innovation has taken his advocacy a step further by calling on the Minister of State in charge of Public Procurement to furnish the people of Ghana with details of the procurement process in the procurement of the facility.
