NIA system hasn’t been designed to favour any political party, says Attafuah

The National Identification Authority (NIA) has assured that its systems has not been engineered to favour the two main political parties; the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The Electoral Commission (EC) is proposing a constitutional change that will make the Ghana Card as the sole document for confirming one’s nationality and age to register as a voter ahead of the 2024 elections.

But that has been met with some stiff opposition from the minority group in Parliament over fears that many citizens will be disenfranchised.

Speaking to Nana Yaa Mensah on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Thursday (6 July), Attafuah said it will be colossal shame not to use the Ghana Card for the upcoming general election.

“Our processes is politically neutral, it cannot benefit a particular party, weather it is National Democratic Congress or New Patriotic Party and NDC has nothing to fear about the Ghana Card and our processes.

“We are not engineering anything to the detriment of NDC and we cannot engineer anything to the benefit of the NPP, we will not do that, we are not designed to do that, the system is technical, its is neutral,” the NIA boss added.
