Rawlings registers for Ghana Card despite NDC boycott

The founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings, has successfully registered for his Ghana card despite an ongoing boycott by the NDC minority in Parliament.

The former president was registered for the card earlier today [Tuesday].

The Minority in Parliament boycotted the Ghana card registration process for parliamentarians citing among other reasons that the use of only birth certificates and passports as proof of citizenship could denationalize some Ghanaians.

“We remain opposed to the restriction of identification requirements for registration to Passports and Birth Certificates. Our analysis show that this will prevent about 23 million Ghanaians from obtaining the Ghana Card and deprive them of any benefit thereof,” a statement issued by the caucus leader Haruna Iddrisu said.
