CID must probe fake Ghana Card circulation – Muntaka

The Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, has said he will push for side to petition the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), to trace persons who created and circulated fake Ghana identity cards of some minority members.

This is after some pictures of the Ghana Card were circulated on social media with the details of some Minority members like the Asawase MP.

“I will instruct that we write to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to ask them to take up this because this is completely a fake thing.”

“Such things can create a lot of confusion in the system and I expect them to be able to get down to those who have done this,” Muntaka Mubarak told Citi News.

The MP for Bolgatanga Central Constituency, Isaac Adongo, has also said the Minority might take legal action against persons who circulated the fake Ghana cards.

Disappointing Amidu still hounding NDC – Ayine

The Bolgatanga East MP, Dr. Dominic Ayine, believes the Special Prosecutor is still exhibiting bias against elements of the National Democratic Congress.

Speaking on Eyewitness News, Dr. Ayine briefly responded to suggestions from Mr. Amidu that some leading NDC MPs tried to cover up the double salary scandal.

The Special Prosecutor, in an exclusive interview with Citi News, maintained that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) must probe the allegations without any distractions.

“The ordinary man going to jail is a human being like a Ghanaian. I don’t like this whole idea about political elite. Honourables you are supposed to be, and then you are just fleecing the country. Indeed, that is an offence of abuse of office for private gain,” Mr. Amidu stressed.

But Dr Ayine noted that this was the latest of many unsubstantiated allegations Mr Amidu has fired the way of the NDC.
