NIA explains online portal shut down

The National Identification Authority (NIA) has announced that its online registration portal is temporarily unavailable for public usage.

According to the Authority in a communique, the portal was meant to be launched after all its operational and technical components are ready.

However, its Executive Secretary, Prof Ken Attafuah, mentioned the existence of an online portal in an interview on Joy Fm which has aroused its usage by the public.

“Since then the site has seen unusual traffic occasioning its temporary shutdown.” The statement read.

The NIA has thus warned the general public that those who register online will still have to go through the interview process at the registration centre adding that it is working assiduously to restore the service.

The statement added, “It must be pointed out that an applicant who fills the registration form online will still go through the interview process at the registration centre.”
