NIA resumes E/R Ghana card registration from Thursday
The National Identification Authority (NIA) has said it will resume its registration in the Eastern Region from 18 – 27 June 2020.
At the same time, its card distribution exercise which started on Wednesday, 10 June 2020 at 5,635 registration centres across the country, will end on Thursday, 18 June 2020.
“The exercise will enable approximately 3,934,073 Ghanaians who could not receive their cards during the mass registration exercise to do so”, the NIA said in a statement.
“The cards are being issued to Ghanaians at the same centres where they registered during the mass registration exercise.
“Nearly 800,000 Ghanaians have received the Ghana card since the exercise began last Wednesday, 10 June 2020,” it noted.
The NIA said: “All persons who registered but have not received their Ghana cards are requested to go to the registration centre where they registered to pick up their card”.
“To receive the card, a Ghanaian must present the registration application form, the printout or receipt given at the time of registration, or provide other relevant information to be cross-checked against his/her photograph and personal details contained in a Registration Centre Album.”
By the end of the exercise on Thursday, the NIA said more than eleven million Ghanaians will possess the Ghana card.
“Out of that number, a total of 10,295,578 Ghanaians will be aged 18 years and over,” the statement added.
