Deputy Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Minister Kwaku Amparatwum-Sarpong has denied reports that he said the ministry was not aware of the Ghana Card is accepted as an E-Passport.
The Deputy Minister in a statement explained that “my attention has been drawn to an interview I granted Akoma FM on Thursday morning which seeks to claim I stated that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has no knowledge of the project to transform Ghana card to a travelling document or an e-passport.”
“For the records, at no stage of the interview did I say that. Whoever is behind that story is being mischievous or can’t translate the Twi language to good English.”
He indicated that he mentioned that the Ministry was fully aware of the project during the interview.

Mr. Ampratwum-Sarpong further explained that he was quite reluctant to provide details of the project since it is an initiative of the office of the Vice President.
