Prof. Attafuah, NIA boss

Some Ghanaians are still expressing frustration over the ongoing registration and issuance of the Ghana card.

Sharing their experiences on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, some of the registrants told Kwabena Agyapong they were forced to pay between GHc10-20 before they were made to fill the form for registration.

Others alleged that the officers in charge of the registration had kept the forms and tell them the forms were finished but gave it out to those who were able to pay either GHc10 or GHc20.

The registration has been bedeviled with challenges including delays and break down in the system for registration.

Allegations of bribery have also hit the exercise with the National Identification Authority (NIA) cautioning Ghanaians against any such acts.

The authority has also asked the public to call for the arrest of officers who demand payment for registration.

Meanwhile, the NIA has sacked twelve contract staff over what has been described as a violation of directives and regulations.

Four other officers of the Authority have also been handed a month’s suspension for minor offenses.

According to the Authority, some of the affected persons were dismissed on the basis of offenses such as absenteeism and working beyond the given time without authorization.
