The National Identification Authority (NIA) has stated that the expedited printing of the about 541,529 cards that have been backlogged since July 2022 has started.

According to the NIA, the backlog resulted from a lack of blank cards because of financial difficulties.

In a statement, the NIA highlighted that the preliminary work for the expedited printing began on March 15, 2023, and involved setting up printers, print servers, and laminators as well as sending more workers from the NIA’s regional and district offices to the head office to increase staff capacity.

Following the payment of GH100 million by the Government of Ghana (GoG) to CalBank PLC, which resulted in the transfer of a number of blank cards to NIA on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, the expedited printing process has begun.

The blank cards will be printed for 11 days, concluding on March 29, 2023.

At the conclusion of the exercise, the NIA said it would make the cards available at its regional and district offices across the country and make a public announcement about the time that people who had registered for the cards since July 2022 should visit their local NIA offices to pick up their cards.

As a responsive and accountable public sector institution, NIA claimed it is dedicated to serving the public with dignity and integrity while being focused, coherent, and rigorous.
