Professor Mike Oquaye, Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya on Thursday noted that Information, Communication and Technology hold the future of Ghana.

He therefore promised to make Dome-Kwabenya ICT Centre and Library under construction a centre of excellence in Accra. Prof Oquaye was speaking during an inspection tour of the GH¢100,000 project.

He said an additional GH¢100,000 was needed to complete the project. Prof Oquaye said through ICT India was earning more foreign exchange. The project, which started in 2009, would comprise an Internet cafe, computer laboratory, children and adult libraries. Prof Oquaye unveiled plans for a three-classroom block for a proposed senior high technical school to be attached to the library complex.

The MP led journalists to inspect Taifa Police Station project which has so far attracted GH¢250,000. The station would have male and female cells with toilet facilities, a charge-office, Criminal Investigations Department and Motor, Transport and Traffic Unit and an armoury.
