Features of the Ghana Card Was Borrowed - Policy Analyst Throws Big Blow

A Ghanaian Policy Analyst, Bright Simons, who is also the founder of mPedigree has thrown a big blow to the government after revealing that the very brand design and features of the overly hyped National Identity Card popularly known as the Ghana Card has been borrowed and that government had to pay the originators of the features of the national document.

Written on his Twitter page and confirmed by one of the country's most authoritative and credible news source Joy News, the policy analyst revealed that he is pretty much aware of the fact that many Ghanaians are oblivious of the fact that the Ghana card design was not even owned by Ghana and that it is owned by a French Company and the government had to pay in order to get it.

"How may Ghanaians are even aware that until recently the Ghana Card brand design itself was not even owned by Ghana? That it was owned by a French company and the country had to pay in order to get it? When Civil Society scrutinizes your government, be grateful. There is a war for the soul of your country just in case you don't know," Mr. Bright Simons revealed.

The Ghana Card is the single National Identity Card in Ghana and is obviously one of the flagship policies of the governing New Patriotic Party led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. The latter even touted the achievement as something he will gladly prefer over 10 road interchanges if given the chance to make a choice.

The Ghana Card has now become the only document that has been approved by the Bank of Ghana for all financial transactions and banking services across the country effective July 1. The Electoral Commission is also considering a possibility of using the card as the only requirement for voting in the next general elections. The Ghana card is thus slated to replace all identity cards in Ghana including passports.
