According to him, these cards are at the various Regional and district offices of the NIA and he made this known in a recent interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi in an interview on Peace FM’s morning show “Kokrokoo”.

In his submission, he said;

“We have registered 17,138,609 Ghanaians as at 3rd August. We have printed 16, 567,460 cards and those that we have issued out their cards to are 15,768,777. With those that we haven’t been able to print their cards but have been registered are 571,149. Also, those we have printed their cards but haven’t been able to distribute it to them because they haven’t come for their cards are 796,683…Their cards are sitting at our Regional and district offices.

The law says we should make sure that the data that is given to us that we capture in the database permanently is accurate and reliable. So, if it (cards) stays in the queue which is translated as logical and technical queue . . . it has to be investigated on a case by case basis.”
