The incoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration intends to complete the National Identification system that was commenced by the erstwhile Kufour administration within its first year in office, President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo has said.

Nana Akufo-Addo, who was speaking at a meeting with the Private Enterprise Federation at the Ghana Institute of Management And Public Administration (GIMPA) said the system will help ensure the country has a solid database.

“The National Identification system is the primary identifier with linkages to the databases of institutions such as the police, the National Health Insurance Scheme, Passport office, immigration, courts, the Ghana Revenue and the Driver Licensing Authority.”
