The National Identification Authority (NIA) is cautioning registered persons who are yet to receive their cards to refrain from re-registering.

It said such an act amounts to fraud and is punishable by law.

The Authority said over 30,000 cases of double registration have been brought to its attention since the beginning of the Ghana Card registration in the country.

Executive Secretary for the NIA, Prof Ken Attafuah who addressed a press conference Wednesday said suspected persons will not receive their card.

“32,756 cases of double registration have been recorded. This is a situation where an applicant attempts to register twice at a particular registration center or a different center.

“When this happens the applicant’s card will not be printed because the system holds on to it for reasons of suspected fraud.

“Having said that all applicants whose cards are not yet ready should not attempt to register again during the mop-up exercise otherwise, the system will consider it as fraud,” he explained.

He also stated that the mop-up exercise will begin tomorrow, June 18, and ends mid-September this year.

According to the Executive Director, this will see a resumption of card registration in the Eastern Region which was halted three months ago as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.
