The much anticipated Mass Registration Exercise for the National Identification Card by the NIA which was supposed to begin today is in a limbo in the Eastern Region.
A visit to some of the registration centres in Koforidua around 8:20 this morning revealed that equipment for the exercise had not arrived.
The NIA officials present were only issuing cards for applicants who had gone through the exercise before it was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Mass registration in the Region, according to the Authority is as a result of the suspension of the exercise on March 21, this year.
According to some officials who spoke to our Correspondent on conditions of anonymity, said they were supposed to start the registration at 7 am this morning, but they were yet to receive the equipment from Accra.
