Former President John Mahama has mocked the Akufo-Addo government over the new digital address system that was launched some weeks ago.
According to him, the government must hold someone accountable for paying for a service that is available on mobile phones already through google map.
“….Otherwise, how can you launch a whopping GPS system that is freely available on our mobile phones and say it is the best national addressing system?… It’s such a pity. Why would you embarrass the president so much?” Mahama told a gathering of NDC supporters at a unity walk in Cape Coast in the Central region Sunday.

He added that the government through its actions is whittling away its honeymoon period.
“… And when you talk about accountability, this is where the president should show that he is serious about corruption. Somebody must account for GHC15miliion given away free of charge.
“When I was in office, there was a bus branding incident, GHC3.6million, a minister of state resigned because of GHC3.6million. When you come into office and you want to cover up, you can cover up. When things happen you just refuse to investigate them.
“The toughness of the fight against corruption is that you are able to take action against your own people and that is what we did when we were in office. Here the NPP seems unable to take, the president seems unable to take self-action in anything,” he mocked.
The software, Ghana Post GPS was launched on Wednesday, October 18, by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to host the Digital addressing system in partial fulfillment of the government’s promise to formalize the Ghanaian economy.
