The National Identification Authority (NIA) has announced the indefinite suspension of the mass registration exercise in the Eastern Region until further notice.

According to a press release signed by Francis Palmdeti, the Head of Corporate Affairs of NIA, the decision follows a careful assessment of the registration exercise carried out in the Eastern Region between Wednesday, 4th March 2020 and Friday, 20th March 2020.

The statement said It also takes into account the current trend in the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana since the suspension of the mass registration exercise on Saturday, 21st March 2020, following  an interlocutory injunction application.

The statement said the NIA welcomes the dismissal by the High Court of the interlocutory injunction application and the substantive suit but nonetheless, the NIA will continue to suspend its mass registration operations in the Eastern Region until further notice.

The press release stated that the NIA will use the period of suspension to continue with its preparations toward the establishment of its Regional, Municipal and District Offices and arrange for the co-location of its registration services at some of its cognate institutions such as National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) and Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), among other responsibilities.

It stated that the NIA will however continue to observe developments relating to the management of COVID-19 in Ghana and will determine, at the appropriate time, when and how to resume its mass registration operations.
