The National Identification Authority (NIA) is set to begin a mass registration exercise in the Eastern Region from Wednesday, March 4 to March 27, this year.

The exercise will be carried out in all the 33 constituencies with 833 designated registration centres.

The Executive Secretary of the NIA, Prof Kenneth Attafuah, announced this at a media briefing in Koforidua.

The National Identification Authority officially began its mass registration in April last year beginning with the Greater Accra Region. It has so far covered 15 out of the 16 regions of the country and about to start registration in the Eastern Region which is the last.

So far, close to ten million eligible Ghanaians have been registered with almost nine million cards printed out.

According to the Executive Secretary of the NIA, Prof Ken Attafuah, the mass registration exercise is opened to only Ghanaian citizens 15 years and above living home and abroad but not foreigners.

He disclosed that foreign nationals legally or permanently resident in the country will be registered after the mass registration for a fee.

Prof Attafuah asked all those who may not be captured during the mass registration not to worry since regional offices will be established after the mass registration to cater for such persons.

Prof. Attafuah asked the public to report any official who engages in corrupt acts to their office through the following numbers 0302999306 or through WhatsApp on 0205044793.
