The minority leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has accused the current government of proving themselves to be inconsistent in their words and deeds.
Speaking to a charged crowd at Ashaiman during the celebration of the silver jubilee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the MP argued that in just six months of assuming office, the current government has developed the penchant for breaking electoral promises.
He indicated that prior to the December 7 elections, the president and his vice, then opposition leaders, consistently castigated the then NDC government with accusations of excessive borrowing, but upon the assumption of office, they have already taken to borrowing of funds.
“They speak with a double tongue… We are waiting for them in Parliament to come and say that they want to borrow. We will remind them about what they said in December and October about borrowing.” he added
