The National Identification Authority (NIA) has extended the Ghana card registration exercise in the Volta Region by three weeks.

The exercise which ended in the region on August 14 will commence again on August 29 until September 18.

The Corporate Communications Director at the NIA, Francis Pamdetti disclosed this on Accra based Citi FM that a lot of people, especially those in densely-populated areas are yet to be registered, hence the extension.

“The authority has decided to do a mop-up in the Volta Region and that mop-up will start on 29th August and end on 18th September. The reason for the mop-up is to register persons in areas where we did not spend much time registering people and so we noticed that quite a number of people were left out and also in densely populated areas we realized that there were still lots of people who are yet to be captured.”
