The National Identification Authority (NIA), has issued a fraud alert to the General Public and distance itself from an announcement circulating on social media claiming that, the Authority is charging people who could not register during the nationwide exercise.
According to the NIA, the general public should desist from dealing with people who are sharing such information as it is a fraudulent attempt to dupe unsuspecting people.
The messages circulating on social media claims that, the NIA is charging people as penalty for failing to register during the mass registration.
But the NIA denied the claims and stated that, there is no penalty for failure to register during the mass registration.
The authority further stated that, permanent Regional and District Offices will be opened from June this Year for continuous registration, card issuance, replacement and updates.
The Authority also reminds the general public that, it charges 250 Cedis for premium service only and this service is only available at its Head Office.
