Some applicants hoping for the Ghana Card were left stranded at the two designated centers at the Tamale Technical University in the early hours of Friday July 10. The delays resulted from faulty machines at the registration centers.
The National Identification Authority on Friday July 10, began the mob up exercise in the Northern Region.
A number of applicants therefore massed up at the registration centers hours to the start of the exercise, but were left stranded at the centers owing to the faulty machines.
Some of the applicants who spoke to Diamond news said they wanted to register for the Ghana card to enable them acquire the new voters ID card.
They however were disappointed even as at 11am on Friday, the registration machines had not been replaced to enable the NIA officials begin the registration.
Some personnel of the National Identification Authority who spoke to Diamond news off record admitted that their machines had challenges at various centers across the region and their technical persons were working on them.
The National Identification Authority (NIA) announced a mop-up mass registration exercise throughout the country, which is expected to last two weeks.
This was in order to allow persons that could not register for the Ghana Card during the earlier registration period to do so now.
