Ghana Card Could Soon Solve Problems With Voters’ Register – Dr. Bawumia Hints

Spread the love

The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has hinted that the Ghana card could become a primary document for voters in future elections.

If successfully implemented, holders who turn 18 will automatically be rolled onto the voters’ register; a move that will not only eliminate the stress of queuing to register for the ID, but also save the country a lot of money, per his assertion.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has for the past few months opposed the idea of replacing Voters’ ID with the Ghana card by describing the idea as part of a grand scheme to disenfranchise eligible voters.

But in explaining why the replacement needs to happen, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia said “very soon you’ll see that our problem with voter registration will disappear.”

“It’s only a matter of time. If not at the next elections, the elections after, because we spend so much on voter registration but one’s unique identifier is determined and you can’t have underage people coming to register and vote.”

He added that the “Ghana card will be a good identification document as we’re already seeing so that we sanitize the voter registration system.”
