Bawumia Launches ‘Ghana Card At Birth’ Tomorrow


In an endeavor to streamline identification processes and facilitate access to essential services, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who also doubles as the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is set to unveil the groundbreaking ‘Ghana card number at birth’ initiative.

The ceremonial launch is slated for Thursday, March 14, 2024, at the Ga North Hospital in Ofankor, Greater Accra Region, heralding a transformative approach towards assigning a unique identity number to every Ghanaian child from birth.

Under the inventive scheme, coined as the “Ghana card number at birth,” spearheaded by the Office of the Vice President, the distinctive Ghana card will be designated to individuals upon reaching 15 years of age, as disclosed by official sources.

This innovation marks a pivotal milestone in the Government’s commitment to equip every citizen with a Ghana card, streamlining access to fundamental social amenities and services by ensuring comprehensive identification coverage across the nation.

With the National Identification Authority having successfully inscribed 17.5 million Ghanaians onto its biometric database, the impending launch of the ‘Ghana card number at birth’ initiative solidifies the administration’s unwavering dedication to fostering a robust identification framework tailored towards enhancing inclusivity and efficiency within the public service domain.

The revered event signifies a remarkable leap towards bolstering Ghana’s identity infrastructure, setting the stage for a more interconnected and citizen-centric approach to identity management as the nation embarks on a progressive trajectory under Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s visionary leadership.
