The Controller and Accountant General’s Department has said that the policy forms part of ongoing measures to harmonise its systems.

The Communications Ministry has already indicated that the laws specify the Ghana Card as the sole form of identification verification in the country.

The Department believes that as it continues the synchronization of its financial remuneration process, the card will ensure a speedy administration of the payroll.

“By this notice, all existing and prospective Government workers are to ensure they are registered with the NIA and have obtained their Identity numbers,” portions of the statement read.
