Executive Secretary's Message
As the Executive Secretary of the National Identification Authority [NIA] and also its Chief Executive Officer, it is my duty to keep and maintain the National Identity Register of Ghana in an electronic form for the purposes confined to matters of public interest
This would require that a well-motivated, dynamic and capable work force is recruited and trained to be in a position to discharge this mandate.
It is my goal with the support of my very capable staff to present the NIA to the public as a Solid, Agile, Liberal and Energetic organisation, capable and ready to deliver an efficient, reliable and robust National Identification System [NIS]. This we believe would serve as a bedrock for the formalization of the economy of Ghana leading to its socio-political development. By this, Ghana can truly move from the dependency on aid to self-reliance.
The Ghana Card which would be issued to every Ghanaian living in Ghana and abroad and to qualified foreigners living in Ghana is state of the art and is the only identity document to be used for purposes of identification in Ghana. Hence the determination of the NIA to promote its usage. Read More
