The Cooperate Affairs of the National Identification Authority (NIA), had issued a statement calling on Ghanaians to disregard the fake Ghana card circulating on social media purported to be registration of some Minority Members of Parliament.

According to the NIA they have not done any secret registration of any Minority Member of Parliament and consider the photos of the Minority MPs circulating as photoshoped.

And the pictures on the fake card does not conform to the NIA picture requirement, whiles the purported identification number on the card fall completely outside their unique numbering system and scope.

“The NIA is a creature of the statute and is determine to obey the existing laws of the Republic of Ghana in implementing the National Identification System project and would not resort to any dubious means to get Ghanaians to register for the Ghana card.”

In the statement, the NIA indicated that it would soon issue a comprehensive statement covering the technical and operational process involved in the issuance of the Ghana card.

The fake Ghana card of former Deputy interior Minister James Agalga, Bolga East legislator Isaac Adongo and the Minority chief whip Muntaka Mohammed Mubarak are currently circulating on social media.
