Fulanis’ across the country are crying over denial of Ghanaian citizenship.
They have alleged that Ministries, Departments and Government agencies have denied them access to services due to their origins.
Pressing home their concerns in Accra during a press conference, the General Secretary of Tabital Pulaaku International Ghana Chapter, an umbrella body fighting for the rights of Fulanis across the globe, Mr.Yakubu Musah Barry accused the National Identification Authority NIA of discriminating against the fulani origins in the ongoing nationwide registration exercise.
“The irregular conduct of some officials of National Identification Authority against the people of Fulani origin who are citizens of Ghana must be looked at”, he stated.
He explained that the government agencies are not given their members the opportunity to prove their eligibility with documents but denied them from participating in the registration exercise on the grounds of origin.
Mr. Barry called on the President Nana Akufo-Addo to institute an investigations into the alleged act of misconduct by some government officials.
The leadership of Tabital Pulaaku International has also taken note of acts of impunity against the fulani origin at the passport offices across the country.
The group wondered why their daughter, hajia Samira Bawumia, the second lady of the land is mute on the maltreatment against the people of her origin.
