Sim Card Re-registration: We’ll Call for Extension If Majority of Ghanaians Do Not Have Ghana Card By March 2021



The National Identification Authority, NIA, wants applicants for the Ghana card to exercise patience as over 300 centres have been open across the country to issue the cards.

The Acting Head of Corporate Affairs of the NIA, Abudu Abdul-Ganiyu, in an interview with Citi News, said permanent regional and districts offices have been opened across the country, and so Ghanaians do not need to mass up at the offices.

“NIA now has a national presence. We are going to be in the districts and regionals forever and that is the reason why there should really not be panic or anxiety because any day you can wake up and go to the NIA office for any of these services to be offered you. The fact is that we have one and enrolment station in every district and, technically and operationally, they are able to enrol only about 15 people a day. I understand that the card is in demand for various services such as SIM card registration, but that is all the way to March next year and if we get to that point where we realize that we still have a significant portion of our population not registered, we are going to call for an extension.”
