It can also happen that an anonymous person can use your Ghana card to ensue in a fraudulent act or anything of the sort. This act is called interference. In whichever case, it is necessary to have your card replaced.

Presently, if you have your Ghana card, you also need this information to keep for future use. This is because you can't be a hundred per cent sure of protecting your card. At a point, it is likely to be left in a vehicle, at the bank, or at a Merchant point.
Let's look at what you have to do when you either misplace or damage your card.
1. You have to report to the National Identification Authority (NIA)
When you misplace your Ghana card, report to the office of the National Identification Authority (NIA). The NIA is the institution mandated to issue national ID cards and manage the National Identification System (NIS). It is mandated to create a national database or register, hence, has your details to create a new ID card for you. Get their office and tell them your problem about the card and they are in the best position to help.
2. Swearing an affidavit
Once you get to the office of the NIA and lodge a complaint, you'll then be taken through a process that requires you to depose to an affidavit to certify the veracity of the loss, theft, damage, interference or destruction of the identity card and payment of a fee for the replacement.
The process of replacing the card can be a little cumbersome and you have to bear with it. However, if you want to save your time and energy, it is advisable for you to protect and secure your card.
