Tamale South Constituency MP Haruna Iddrisu says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will resist any decision by the Electoral Commission to use the Ghana Card as the only identification for voting within the 2024 elections till the card is made accessible to each Ghanaian.

According to the Minority Leader, the present challenges related to the acquisition of the Ghana Card are a deliberate scheme by the ruling party and its brokers inside the electoral fee to disenfranchise many Ghanaian voters.

Mr Iddrisu asserted that Ghanaians mustn’t endure in buying the Ghana Card.

He said each Ghanaian is entitled to one, therefore, it’s government’s obligation to make it simpler for individuals to obtain their playing cards.

“Every Ghanaian is entitled to it, it is for Akufo-Addo and his government to provide it. Every day, we are queuing, reduce the queues, make sure we have it”.

The Minority Leader additional explained that when everybody has the card, then it will be doable for them to use it for SIM registration and for the aim of election.

“When we have it, we will use it for SIM registration and you can use it for the purpose of elections. But where we are not certain, that every Ghanaian has it because I see a queue every day in Tamale, there’s a queue here in Walewale and Nelerigu, you cannot say that something you ought to provide me, and you have failed to provide, I should suffer the consequences for it. That is not justice, that is not fair”, he burdened.
