Ghana Card: NIA No-Show in Parliament


It was a no-show in Parliament on Monday, 11 May as staff and MPs were left stranded following the failure of officials of the National Identification Authority to show up to register them for the Ghana Card, as earlier advertised.

MPs from the majority side of the house who were present for the registration got furious about the failure of the NIA and its officials to turn up for the exercise.

The registration exercise, which has suffered several postponements and been fraught with anomalies, suffered a similar no-who a few weeks ago, with the Executive Secretary, Prof Ken Attafuah blaming the situation on a technical glitch.

Meanwhile, the Minority in parliament and the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has raised concerns about the NIA’s insistence that it will use only birth certificates and passports as proof of citizenship for the registration.

The Minority had already served notice it was boycotting Monday’s exercise.
