The Fulani community in Ghana is unhappy over what according to it, is a deliberate policy by the National Identification Authority (NIA) to deny its members the opportunity of being registered for the Ghana Card.

According to the General Secretary of Tabital Pulaaku International Ghana, Yakubu Musah Barry, some officials of NIA and indigenes have been frustrating sections of Fulanis in some regions, particularly the Northern, Savanna and North East regions during the Ghana card registration process.

He said since the commencement of the exercise in the said regions, a sizeable number of members with proof of citizenship have reported to the leadership that they were turned away by the NIA officials and some indigenes at some notable registration centres.
