Ghana card will end age-cheating in football – Bawumia

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, vice president of the Republic of Ghana, thinks the Ghana card will aid in the fight against age-cheating in sports.

The Ghana Card has been distributed to more than 14 million Ghanaians, according to the National Identification Authority.

Dr. Bawumia contends that when all personal data is linked together, the phenomenon of phony documents and multiple ages in sports will be reduced.

Dr. Bawumia remarked on Sunday at the Accra Business School that “false birth certificates were a significant problem for our country and it made it very difficult for people to believe our documents at embassies and everywhere because people will just go and get phony birth certificates.”

Actually, we had to synchronize three distinct databases when we visited the birth and death register.

“Once you have a distinct identity, you won’t need fake birth papers since there won’t be a difference between a football age and a normal age. That transaction will be completed, he declared.

“Recently you would know that our women’s team was suspended for fielding a few players who were underage,” he continued. Now, perhaps, we’ll make it a rigorous requirement that they present their Ghana card before they can register to play.

Seven players from the Black Starlets team were discharged from the team last year after failing the magnetic resonance imaging test.

Following their final World Cup qualifier against Morocco in June, FIFA imposed a two-year suspension alleged age cheating on Ghana’s U17 women’s team, the Black Maidens.
