The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has expressed shock at the Minority in Parliament’s decision to go to court over the Ghana Card registration exercise.
Speaking on Metro TV’s morning show, Good Morning Ghana, Mr. Baako said that the minority has chosen to go to court because numbers will not help them in Parliament in terms of voting on the issue.
”Ghanaians must take a hard look at them [Minority]. Regardless of the so called certificate of urgency, our friends, who are brilliant, who are knowledgeable, who are experienced; sat in the house of Parliament, gave total praise to all these things and then turn around and play on the keyboard of peoples’ emotions?” he asked.
”Please, we must question them. To be honest with you, we must question their level of sincerity, honesty and competence,” he added.
Mr. Baako’s comment is as a result of the Minority in Parliament making moves to go to the Supreme Court for an interpretation on the use of the voters’ ID card as proof of nationality and registration for the Ghana card.
Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu addressing the press in Parliament on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 said they firmly believe that many Ghanaians will be denied the opportunity to register and be issued with the Ghana card.
This, he said, is due to the fact that the National Identification Authority (NIA) has limited the proof of citizenship to passport and birth certificate.
The Minority leader further indicated that they will continue their boycott of the registration exercise until a determination on the matter.
