Weeks ago, it was reported that Ghana’s National Identification Card, the Ghana Card procured by the National Identification Authority (NIA) costs the country $1.22 billion dollars (or GhC5.5 billion cedis) over a 15 year period.

This figure came from the Executive Director of the NIA, Prof Ken Attafuah himself, who was speaking to TV3 on the registration exercise, which was to begin yesterday, but failed to take off.

Kennedy Agyapong said $1.2 Billion is fraud Ken Attafuah is perpetrating and must be stopped before they spend the money.

“I took a company to NIA that was willing to do the Ghana Card for $50million. NIA rejected the offer and is currently spending $1.2billion on the Ghana Card. The NPP cannot defend the $1.2 billion for the Ghana Cards. They cannot!”, he thundered in rage over the fraud in the midst of poverty in a country where people meet him in traffic and cry their heart out for only 200 cedis help
