The Deputy Attorney General has called on the Accra High Court to allow the National Identification Authority (NIA) to continue with its Ghana Card registration exercise.
In a case filed on behalf of the AG’s office, Godfred Yeboah Dame argued that the Ghana card will be needed in the upcoming voter registration exercise.
According to him a halt on the exercise will result in “irremediable harm which can never be occasioned by the respondents by the grant of this application”.

He explained that the Ghana card will be used as a source of identification for voters to be registered by the EC.
He concluded that point by saying “greater inconvenience and hardship will be caused by restraint of the statutory functions of the NIA in the circumstances”.
Social media reactions from Ghanaians have shown how much this piece of information is unwelcome.
Waec officer believes the NIA registration has nothing to do with human lives.

Meanwhile, two Ghanaians made known their plans to sue the National Identification Authority for disregarding President Akufo-Addo's directive following the coronavirus outbreak in Ghana.
According to a report filed by theghanareport.com, the two Ghanaians, Emmanuel Akumatey and Kevor Mark-Oliver, argued that the exercise in the Eastern Region has a tendency to aid the spread of the coronavirus.
They, therefore, want the Accra High Court to stop the exercise with immediate effect.
