Accra, May 25, GNA - The National Identification Authority (NIA) has urged residents of the Accra West Zone, where the mass registration is ending on Saturday, May 25, to collect their Ghana cards at some designated collection points in the Municipalities.
It said residents who would be unable to register during the mass registration exercise in the Accra West Zone would be able to do so at District and Regional offices to be set up by NIA after the mass registration exercise.
A statement issued by the Authority, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, on Saturday, explained: "The NIA is unable to grant the request to extend the duration of the mass registration exercise in the said Zone as doing so will adversely affect the published national roll-out strategy."

1. Ga South (Bortianor, Ngleshie, Amanfro)
2. Ga South (Weija, Gbawe, Domeabra / Obom)
