General News of Monday, 30 March 2020Source: Ghanaian TimesCourt ruling on NIA mass registration is affront to President’s directives – Minority LeaderHaruna Iddrisu, Minority leaderHaruna Iddrisu, Minority Leader in Parliament has described the ruling in favour of the National Identification Authority (NIA) to continue with its mass registration exercise as an affront to the President’s directives that, not more than 25 people should congregate at a place to help contain the spread of the coronavirus. He said the court, per its ruling by extension, has given licence to the public such that citizens would now be better justified to disrespect the President’s directives by worshipping and doing any other things which could bring people together. Addressing the Parliamentary Press Corps last Friday, he said the court was prioritising elections at the peril of Ghanaian lives, since the National Identification Card has become one of the conditions under which people qualified to be registered for the new voter’s register and exercise their franchise in this year’s general elections. He said the postponement of the registration was not as a result of the coronavirus, which the EC wanted everyone to believe, since the real fact was that, the instrument, which was to give legal backings to the registration, was not ready.
