Twelve people working for the National Identification Authority (NIA) have been dismissed for violating the directives, rules and regulations of the authority.
Four other officers have been suspended for one month for other minor offences which are contrary to the NIA’s directives, rules and regulations.
The Head of Corporate Affairs of the NIA, Assistant Commissioner of Immigration (ACI) Mr Francis Palmdeti, confirmed the action to the Daily Graphic, saying: “Some of the officers conducted themselves in a manner contrary to the directives, rules and regulations of the NIA, hence their dismissal.”
He explained that the officers were dismissed on the basis of offences including absenteeism and working beyond the given time without authorisation.
He further explained that the dismissed and suspended officers were all contract staff of the NIA, made up of coordinating registration officers, mobile registration workstation operators, card verification and registration officers, hired purposely for the Ghana Card registration exercise.
