NIA apologize to residents in Northern Regions

The National Identification Authority (NIA) , has apologized to residents of Tamale, Nalerugu, Damango as well as other communities in the three northern regions who went to the Ghana Card registration centres to experience a slow start to the mass registration exercise.

A statement signed by the Head of Corporate Affairs (NIA), Francis Palmdeti, said the NIA encountered challenges in transporting some personnel and logistics from Accra to the three regions, which affected the smooth start of the registration exercise.

“We are happy to inform members of the general public that the challenges have been resolved; as personnel have now arrived at their respective districts and centres and the remaining logistics have also been airlifted by the Ghana Airforce to Tamale for distribution to various districts and registration points,” it said.

The NIA expressed immense gratitude to the Ghana Airforce and other key stakeholders including Metro Mass Transit Limited who assisted in addressing the challenges.
