The Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has asserted that the government payroll is now free of phantom employees.

He attributed this achievement to the incorporation of the Ghana Card into the nation’s digital infrastructure.

In an audio recording aired on X by GHOne TV, the presidential candidate, who also serves as the country’s incumbent vice president, confidently stated that the absence of fictitious workers from the government payroll is a direct result of the implementation of the Ghana Card system.

“So now, we can confidently say that because of the use of the Ghana Card, we don’t have ghost workers on government payroll anymore,” he stated.

The source of his statement remains unclear, but it’s noteworthy that the Ghana Card has emerged as the primary identification card in the nation.

Additionally, the Electoral Commission has announced its intention to reintroduce a bill in Ghana’s parliament, advocating for the Ghana Card to serve as the exclusive document for verifying citizenship during voter registration.
