Founding President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has observed that the corrupt deals perpetrated by some registration officials in the GhanaCard registration are due to the “poor planning” ahead of the entire exercise, ABC News has gathered.

Franklin Cudjoe explained that because the registration exercise was made to look like an event instead of a continuous process where one can conveniently get registered at any time after the mass activity ongoing.

The rush to get registered, he suggested has resulted in the witnessed corruption engaged in by the registration officials of the National Identification Authority (NIA).

In a Facebook post sighted by ABC News, the founding President of the policy think tank said that “when you make registration for critical national identification cards an event instead of a process, you get all kinds of corrupt arrangements.”

According to Mr. Cudjoe, the inability of the country to effectively get through the National Identification process has also exposed the inefficiency of the Electoral Commission who he says are speaking “technical jargons” to cover up their flaws and also to “shepherd the usual procurement gigs.”

He, therefore, alluded to Professor Kwaku Azar’s usual description that these whole unfolding events are a “scam and a sham”

“When you make registration for critical national identification cards an event instead of a process, you get all kinds of corrupt arrangements- from crooked registration agents who benefit from the delays as with the Ghana Card process to busy bureaucrats such as those of the Electoral Commission mouthing tachnical jargons to erase their inefficiency or just shephered the usual procurement gigs without blinking eyes. This is what Prof. Kwaku Azar characteristically describes as a Scam and a Sham! This is truly complex country! Sham!,” the Facebook post read.
