The National Identification Authority (NIA) has come out with new dates to do a planned mop-up exercise for the National ID registration.
The exercise will now take place in three regions namely Ashanti, Volta and Oti regions.
The Ghana Card exercise has been ongoing for some time now but there are widespread concerns that many have still not registered and that has informed the NIA's decision to begin a mop-up exercise.
The NIA in a public notice issued by Head of Corporate Affairs, Francis Palmdeti, on Monday, July 27, 2020, announced the new dates as follows:
Ashanti Region: August 2, 2020 to August 16, 2020
Volta Region: August 3, 2020 to August 14, 2020
Oti Region: August 3, 2020, to August 14, 2020.
The NIA explained in the release that the mop-up exercise is targeted at persons who were unable to register during the mass registration exercise which took place some months ago.
