The National Identification Authority (NIA) have begun issuing Ghana cards to Members of Parliament, following the commencement of registration of Parliamentarians as well as other staff of the legislature for the National ID card.
Though the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority are still boycotting the process, some members of Parliament and officials of Parliament were seen going through the process.
Parliament is among the key public institutions that have been selected for early registration of its staff for the National ID, also known as Ghana card.
Officials of the Presidency were issued with the cards last week following an earlier ‘no show’ by the NIA on an initial promised date.
Officials of the NIA began the registration process as early as 9:00am, and will continue the process for two weeks when all MPs and staff are expected to have been registered.
Most of the MPs who took part in the process were impressed with the organisation, given that they had gone through the process successfully.
A section of NPP parliamentarians who took part in the process praised the NIA for extending the early registration process to the legislature.
They also criticized the minority for declaring a boycott of the process.
