NIA Suspends Ghana Card registration due to stampede at the HQ
The National Identification Authority (NIA) has suspended premium registration services at its head office- HQ for two weeks, starting from Monday, April 4, 2022.
In a statement issued by the Authority, it says applicants who wish to access premium registration services should do so at the CalBank Head Office on the Independence Avenue.
Such applicants will also be required to pay a fee of GH¢250 via any mobile money platform to confirm an appointment at the CalBank Head Office.
Customers can however visit the Elwak Sports Stadium for update of personal records, verification of cards, card replacements and SIM Cards validation services; as well as the Accra Sports Stadium and the University of Ghana Business School for new registration services.
Premium registration at the NIA head office will resume on Tuesday, April 19, 2022.
The authority recently faced criticism over the registration process after there was a stampede at its premises on Tuesday, March 22, 2022.
The stampede led to one person being rushed to the hospital.
