After boycotting the registration of Members of Parliament (MP) for the National ID cards, citing legal, procurement and cost concerns, details are emerging that some minority MPs registered for the cards.
Though this is contrary to the official stance of the leadership of the Minority in Parliament, we are informed that about forty Mps from the minority side actually registered for the Ghana Cards.
The revelation was made by the Majority leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Honourable Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu on Monday June 25 on Kumasi-based Kessben FM.
Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu in reacting to a reckless comment by Asiedu Nketiah that the bloody Côte d’Ivoire experience maybe encountered in Ghana told Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye that the comment was uncalled for as forty minority MPs have registered for the Card.
He therefore urged the NDC’s Chief Scribe not to go on that tangent as the interest of the country supersedes any personal interest.
He warned him to be circumspect in his discussion as he is a leader in the largest opposition party in the country, a position that comes with enormous deal of responsible behaviour.
The Minority in Parliament announced a boycott of the registration of Members of Parliament (MP) for the National ID cards citing legal, procurement and cost concerns.
In a statement signed and issued by the Minority Leader, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu said the National Identification Authority (NIA) has not been honest with Ghanaians over the cost of the project with two figures – $1.4billion and $293 million.
