We’re disappointed in delays in issuance of Ghana cards-Ghanaians


Some Ghanaians have expressed their disappointment in the National Identification Authority (NIA) over delays in issuing them their cards instantly.

Those who spoke to Rainbow Radio at some centres said they have not been given their national cards even after days of going through the registration.

The NIA about a week ago, started the mass issuance of National ID cards.

The introduction of the cards is expected to contribute to the digitisation space of Ghana.

The pilot was carried out in Adentan and Madina, suburbs of the capital, Accra.

The Ghana ID card has been touted as the all-purpose ID that contains biometric information.

The card according to authorities, will be required for accessing a host of social services including health, education, pensions, passport services and business registration.

It is also expected to bring an end to the status quo where different bodies have their different database and issue cards, some of the information contradicting one another.

But some persons who have gone through the registration says they were highly disappointed over the delays.

Others have also accused some officials of charging them GHc5 before issuing them with the cards.
