The National Identification Authority (NIA), says it has registered 2,902,526 eligible Ghanaians for the Ghana Card in the Greater Accra, Volta and Oti regions since the registration started on June 4, last year.

It said out of the figure, 2,590,526 cards had been printed and 1,718,021 cards had been issued to applicants in the three regions as at September 14, 2019.

Head of Corporate Affairs of the NIA, Mr Francis Palmdeti, in an interview in Accra on Sunday said that 556,559 people had been registered in the Volta Region, with 523,984 cards printed and 395,175 issued as at September 14, 2019.

In the Oti Region, he said, 387,057 people had been registered with 236,348 cards printed and 187,643 cards issued since registration started in that particular region on August 22, 2019.

He said registration centres in the Volta Region where mop-up was conducted will also continue to issue printed cards to applicants at the centres they registered from Monday, September 16 to Friday, September 20, but no new registrations will be done.
