The Deputy Attorney General of Ghana Godfred Yeboah Dame has argued that the National Identification Registration Exercise has to continue since the success of the 2020 General Election largely depends on it.
Arguing his case in court, Mr. Yeboah Dame stated that the Ghana card will be needed in the upcoming voters registration.
Ghana has recorded some cases of the coronavirus disease; 52 so far and as a matter of public safety, the President announced a ban on social gatherings and public activities to curb the spread of the disease.
All government agencies have put a hold on major activities except for the National Identification Authority who is only interested in the 2020 General Election.
They still went ahead to conduct the exercise in the wake of the outbreak in the Eastern Region.
The exercise only came to a halt after a court injunction on the exercise.
