The Minority caucus in parliament is heading to court over what its members have termed as exclusion in the ongoing registration and instant issuance of the Ghana card.
The Minority has boycotted the registration being organized by the National Identification Authority (NIA) on grounds that, the criteria for the registration will denationalize Ghanaians.
Ghanaians are required to present a passport or birth certificate as documents for the registration.
But the Minority has called on the NIA to accept Voter ID cards as part of the criteria for registration.
Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, described said their position is to represent the interest of the public.
The Minority he announced will continue to boycott the exercise until their concerns raised are duly addressed.
The legislator lamented only 7 million Ghanaians are being considered in the ongoing exercise and the Minority is of the view that, the Voters ID is a legitimate document that has been excluded.
‘’We are of the strong belief that, this exercise must be all inclusive. Therefore, our boycott is to ensure that there is no denial of legitimate Ghanaian citizens having their due to be part of the National Identification System. We find the reference document of only the passport and birth certificate inadequate and insufficient,’’ he noted.
