The Gambia Democratic Congress, GDC, in a statement sent to The Standard has called on the Gambia government to expeditiously start issuing ID cards.
The party alleged that it has come to its notice that Gambians with expired identity cards are asked to pay what non-Gambians pay for treatment at hospitals and health centres.
“Banks and business don’t attend to people with expired Gambian identity cards.
“The GDC leadership is urging the Gambia government and the ministry to start issuing Gambians with new identity cards or issue a press release for the health and business sector to accept expired identity cards until they are able to issue valued identity cards to Gambian,.” the statement concluded.
