The National Identification Authority (NIA) has announced plans to introduce two packages for persons who were not able to register for the Ghana Card. Both will cost a fee.
The two packages (Institutional and Premium) will cost GH₵100 and GH₵250 respectively.
According to the NIA, this package will begin after the free mass registration exercise nationwide, which is expected to be completed by December.
Speaking in an interview on JoyNews, the Chief Executive Officer of the NIA, Ken Attafuah, revealed that the NIA intends to set up district offices to enable registration at any time.
Explaining the packages in detail, he said the institutional package could be done at home or office, while the premium package could be done at a facility of the applicant’s choice, such as a hotel.
He said the premium package would come with comforting facilities such as air-conditioning and a warm drink such as coffee, tea, or Milo in a peaceful setting.
According to Attafuah, the fees were approved by Parliament since the NIA registration was a public-private arrangement. As a result, there ought to be a mode of getting revenue support from the enterprise.
In other news, over 20 people who trooped to the Korle Bu registration centre to register showed symptoms of the coronavirus.
According to the health officer, Rabiatu Braimah, who was stationed at the registration centre, the suspected individuals had very high temperatures, a cold, or were coughing.
She further added that some of the temperatures of the 20 suspected cases were as high as 39.6 degrees.
