The Centre for Socioeconomic Studies (CSS) has requested a report from the National Identification Authority (NIA) on its compliance to a court ruling regarding the requirements for the Ghana Card registration or else take legal action.

According to CSS, a recent ruling delivered by Her Ladyship, Justice Gifty Agyei Addo in the matter of Mr Francis Kwarteng Arthur vs. The National Identification Authority (Suit No. HR/DJ22/18) held that all the personal information required to be recorded in the register in respect of an individual who applies to be registered are mandatory.

A Fellow of the CSS, Albert Wotorgbui, in a statement on Friday, 26 April 2019, therefore, requested details on the mandatory provision of all the 31 requirements, per Section 4 of Act 750.

The civil society group said it will be compelled to sue the NIA if it fails to abide by the ruling of the court.

“The compliance report, the CSS believes, will serve the public interest in clearing all doubts relating to the mandatory provision of all 31 requirements per the judgement.

“The CSS awaits a positive response from the NIA in a week, failure of which the CSS will be compelled to invoke the legal jurisdiction of relevant state authorities on the subject,” the statement added.
