NIA Back In Action

7:09:00 PM


The National Identification Authority (NIA) will today resume the mass registration and instant issuance of National Identity cards to members of the general public.

The exercise will be carried on at the Adentan Municipality from today, November 5, 2018, and end on Saturday, November 24, 2018.

A total of 50 registration centres will be used for the exercise.

As at the time of filing this report yesterday, staff of NIA had set up their work stations ready to begin the registration this morning.

NIA is required to use the polling stations previously used by the Electoral Commission (EC) for the general elections to the extent possible and as far as practicable.

However, because of instant issuance, it is not every polling station previously used by the EC that the NIA will use.

The NIA has, therefore, mapped Greater-Accra and scouted areas and positioned the registration centres at places with internet connectivity, to make instant card issuance possible.

147 polling stations mapped into 50

Adentan has 147 polling stations but the NIA has mapped them into 50 to undertake the exercise.
