Ghana Cards that have recently been printed are now available to the general population, according to the National Identification Authority (NIA).
A video clip that the authority’s Twitter account posted featured this announcement.
Due to debts it owed several partners, the printing and card issue processes were already stopped.
This caused a delay in the printing of about 542, 529 cards.
The government did, however, say earlier this week that it is prepared to print and distribute the backlog of Ghana cards.
The authorities also laid forth a few instructions for residents to follow in order to get their Ghana Cards back.
Here are some of them:
Follow these steps to receive your card:
Go back to the Regional or District Office where you submitted your Ghana Card registration.
A NIA representative will confirm your identity.
After your identity has been verified, you will receive your Ghana Card.
Due to obligations it owes to its partners, the National Identification Authority withheld the printing and issuing of cards.
The authorities, however, appears to be prepared to produce and distribute the Ghana card, according to newly released reports.
In order to be collected, a backlog of printed cards totaling roughly 542, 529 had been despatched to the various regional and district offices.
In the interim, the Electoral Commission (EC) presented a Constitutional Instrument (C.I.) to Parliament with the intention of making the Ghana Card the only form of identification recognised for voter registration in the general election of 2024 and future elections.
