The National Identification Authority (NIA) says it will issue 3,875,441 printed cards to Ghana Card applicants in 5,635 registration centres in all 16 Regions of Ghana.
The exercise will take place concurrently from Monday 8th to Tuesday 16th June 2020.
This nationwide card issuance blitz, the NIA says will enable 11,062,850 Ghanaians to possess Ghana Cards in good time to be used for vouching for their relatives or other Ghanaians who wish to register during the nationwide mop-up registration exercise commencing on 18th June 2020 and ending in mid-September 2020.
It will also enable persons in possession of the Ghana Card to use it for other mandatory purposes stated in the National Identity Register Regulation, 2012 (LI 2111), including registering as a voter and vouching for others as Ghanaians.
The NIA has assured that it will provide adequate PPE’s for all NIA field officials for use during the exercise.
“All Registration Centres will be equipped with the requisite resources to ensure the effective observance of all prescribed health and safety protocols.
“In addition, security personnel will be deployed at each Registration Centre to ensure that crowd control measures such as physical distancing and appointment system are strictly observed,” a statement copied to Joy News said.
Applicants attending at NIA card collection centres MUST wear a mask and wash their hands before they begin the card collection process, the Authority added.
