We were in Koforidua about three months ago. We were on field monitoring. I got someone whose card was there, I asked him to go collect the card and he said there is no need for it now when the need arises he will go for it. In my home town, Akim Oda, somebody actually told me that I should give her money before she will go and collect her card,” Prof. Attafuah acknowledged.
