National ID solution to Ghana’s weak passport system – Ablakwa

North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa

he North Tongu Member of Parliament says government’s plan to issue national ID cards to all the citizens holds the solution to the weaknesses in the country’s passport system.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said Ghana’s main registry – birth and death and passport system – are riddled with loopholes that are constantly being exploited by criminals.

The lawmaker told Evans Mensah on Joy FM’s Top Story Tuesday, until the government’s national ID initiative is carried out, some foreigners will continue to take advantage of the system.

“That is why the work the current government is doing ought to be supported so far as the issuing of the national ID is concerned,” Mr Ablakwa said.
