The issue of Ghana card registration raised a lot of opinions and views from many Ghanaians as to its purpose since it was given a lot of attention by the government. Due to how the registration exercise took place most citizens were not able to register and others were short listed at the center. It was noticed that most Ghanaians were not pleased with how the exercise took place since most of them have to queue for a long time before they were registered. Others were able to register but could not get their cards on due time or did not receive the card at all.
Others lost interest in the card due to long wait and how harsh they were treated at various centres of registration. But it seems the Ghana card will serve a purpose in the ongoing voter registration and such National Identification Authority (NIA) would like to give Ghanaians a second chance to register but this will be done by making payment according to the Head of NIA/Executive Secretary, Kenneth Agyeman Attafuah.
According to him an amount of GHc100 will be paid if an individual need a home service and GHc 250 for premium service. Organisation can invite NIA to register it's workers but it will come at a fee. This information did not go down well with most Ghanaians since they do not see the reason for the payment of Ghana card as citizens of Ghana, since they pay taxes to the government.
Is it fair for Ghanaians to make these payments?
