There’s hopelessness under Akufo-Addo – CPP

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) says Ghana under Akufo-Addo is without hope.

In a statement, the CPP said the country is in total disarray and does not meet the needs of its people.

“Mr. Speaker, for the first time, we have enrolled 15.5 million people onto the National ID card system (the Ghanacard), and we will complete the process this year.

In so doing, the number of people registered by GRA for tax purposes will increase from the current three million (3 million) to 15.5 million.

“I should recall that at the end of 2016, only 750,000 people had TIN numbers. The increase to 15.5 million in just four years is simply phenomenal. Similarly, from the 2nd Quarter of this year, all National ID numbers will also become SSNIT numbers. This will increase the number of people on the SSNIT database from four million (4 million) to 15.5 million! The National ID numbers will also become NHIS numbers. Very soon we will link the National ID to all SIM cards, bank accounts, Births and Death Registry, DVLA, and passports.”

But the CPP in its statement signed by its General Secretary, Nana Yaa Akyempim Jantuah said the “situation that most Ghanaians find themselves in now is deplorable…”
