The National Identification Authority (NIA) has announced that services being rendered at the El Wak Sports Stadium will be suspended on Monday, August 1.

The identity management services include replacement of lost cards, updating of personal records and correction of errors.

“These services will resume Tuesday, 2nd August 2022,” the NIA said in a public notice on Sunday, July 31.

The notice came a few hours after the Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, announced an extension of the deadline for SIM Card re-registrations.

Most Ghanaians who have not registered their SIM cards as of yet have cited the inability to obtain their national ID card, popularly known as Ghana Cards, as reason.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful had raised concerns about attacks on her person over challenges many have encountered with their Ghana Card registration.

“I must end by reminding us all that the Ministry of Communication and Digitalisation is not the supervisory ministry for the National Identification Authority, even though we collaborate with them.

“My hapless self has been roundly vilified in certain quarters particularly this past week for Ghana card challenges which I am not responsible for.

“Prof. Ken Attafuah and his sector Minister, Hon. Ambrose Dery, Minister for the Interior, are available to answer any Ghana card related issue please.”

NIA has apologised for any inconvenience the public notice will cause.
