Ghana Card: NIA fails to begin registration in Parliament

The National Identification Authority (NIA) has failed to deliver on its promise to begin registering Members of Parliament for the issuance of the Ghana Card on Monday June 11, 2018.

The registration exercise for the issuance of the Ghana Cards should have began in Parliament on Monday, however, MPs were left unattended to as NIA officials failed to show up.

Sources within the NIA claim that officials were directed not to show up for the registration process since Parliament does not convene on Monday, but to rather begin on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

This would be the 6th time the NIA has missed out on its planned dates to begin the registration and issuance of the Ghana card after a failed roll-out on May 28, 2018.

Meanwhile, the Minority in Parliament earlier announced that they will not participate in the planned registration of Parliamentarians by the NIA for the new Ghana Card.
