Telling some Ghanaians to pay for the Ghana Card is discriminatory - NAGRAT President

Mr. Angel Carbonu, President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has expressed that he is "having difficulty in understanding" why a section of Ghanaians are being made to pay for their own Ghana Card when others have gotten it for no fee attached or it.

He made these declarations at the 7pm news that was reported by the Multimedia group on Joynews this evening. 

Mr. Carbonu believes this decision taken by the National Identification Authority (NIA) embarking on such an action is in a way going to affect some people who have not factored such budgets in their plans to be forced to by any means possible to get the required amount of money to be able to foot their own bills.

Per his view, this decision hy the NIA IS not the best, it is uncalled for, and must be rescinded because he believes that the authority have what it takes to do this job without taking monies from Ghanaian citizen. 

He is of the view that government has funded them enough prior to the 2020 general elections and as a result, he believes they have enough money to give all these cards for free. If not, this in a way, is a punishment of which most Ghanaians did not intentionally decided not to go for it but many factors can be attributed to it.

Meanwhile, he also spoke on government officials attaching their Ghana Cards to their salaries in the coming months as a bad move. According to the NAGRAT President, the Controller and Accountant General's Department (CAGD) should reconsider this decision of making it a compulsory move to attach their Ghana cards to their data already submitted to the CAGD.
