The National Identification Authority (NIA) has indicated its outfit will, from Monday, October 25, suspend the services of some 34 registration centres in the country.
These centres are located at the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Registrar General’s Department (RGD) and the NIA Head Office.
The Authority, in a press statement on Friday, explained that it is to enable it deploy staff to their various permanent offices across the country.
The decision is also to allow “NIA bring its various services, including new registrations, card collection or issuance, card replacement and update of personal records, to the doorstep of the populace.”
On issues relating to the resumption of services, the NIA noted that “in all, 16 Regional Offices, 275 NIA operational District Offices and the Premium Registration Centre at the NIA Head Office will be open across the country, effective Wednesday, 3rd November 2021.”
However, registration services will be available at the NIA Head Office on Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm.
Meanwhile, the Client Service Unit of the Authority has expressed its deepest regret for any inconvenience caused by the temporary suspension of its services for the stipulated period.
