On June 16, 2018, the National Identification Authority (NIA) issued a statement against some purported Ghana Cards which were circulating on social media with the details of some NDC MPs.
Minority MPs including the member for Asawase Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, James Agalga of Builsa North Constituency in the Upper East Region, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh of Juaboso Constituency in the Western Region and Isaac Adongo member for Bolgatanga Central Constituency in the Upper East Region, were alleged to have registered in spite of the protest.
Meanwhile, When Prime News Ghana contacted the MP for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, denied ever taken part in the registration.
“They went to Parliament website, pull down pictures of the MPs and then fraudulently manufactured Ghana Cards for them and circulate it without the knowledge of the said MPs too”, Adongo explained.
Adongo added that “look at the pictures on the website and see the same on the fake Ghana Card. These fake cards are being manufactured by people at the Flagstaff House paid with the taxes of the poor Ghanaian”.
“When I tell you guys that the Flagstaff House is a den of thieves now, you say am too hard” the MP added.
