The registration exercise is currently ongoing at various designated areas in Accra.
The process at some registration centres has, however, been dogged by delays, shortage of material, extortion, registration of foreigners in violation of the law, registration outside of the designated centres and out of time, among others.

Some NIA officers were arrested, some for registering people outside the designated time frame and others for attempting to register two Nigerians who posed as Ghanaians.
The National Identification Authority, NIA recently assured the public that the authority will not shield any official who is involved in any illegal activity in connection with the registration for the Ghana Card.
