The National Identification Authority (NIA) has suspended ongoing mass registration exercise in the Eastern Region effective Saturday, March 21, 2020.
This follows an interlocutory injunction application filed at the High Court by two individuals, effectively restraining the Authority from continuing with the mass Ghana Card registration.
Until the determination of the application for an interlocutory injunction by the court, the registration exercise remains suspended, the NIA said in a memo to the staff.
“All staff are required to report for work and render proper accounting of registration equipment, materials and consumables in their custody to the Senior Registration Officers (SROs) with immediate effect,” the memo read in part.
SROs are to hand over these items to the District Registration Officers who are to confirm the inventory while they await further directives from the Head of Operations, Col. Peter Kofi Ghansah (Rtd).
