Ghana Card: It Appears We’re Living In A Banana Republic – Sam George



Ningo Prampram Lawmaker, Samuel Nartey George has criticized the directive of the Government and the Bank of Ghana (BoG) that beginning July 1, only the Ghana Card will be used as identification document for all financial transactions.

In the view of Sam George, the Ghana Card cannot be the only identity card for financial transactions. Rather, he said, it can be used among other cards.

Speaking on the New Day show with Johnnie Hughes on TV3 Tuesday June 21, he said “We are living in a country that appears to be a banana republic, anybody wakes up and throws out directive. When you were taking your money to the bank to deposit, did they ask for a Ghana Card? Has your bank not done a Know Your Customer (KYC) process, where they have asked you to use your national ID, Ghanaian passport or voters ID.”

The Bank of Ghana (BoG) issued a directive that starting July 1, the GhanaCard shall be the only identification card to undertake transactions at all BoG licensed and regulated financial institutions.
