NIA Strike Leaves Applicants Stranded in Ashanti Region<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

Residents of the Ashanti Region hoping to obtain their Ghana cards are facing long delays due to an indefinite strike by National Identification Authority (NIA) staff.

The strike, which began yesterday, June 10th, follows months of stalled negotiations regarding poor working conditions and a lack of progress on institution-specific allowances.

The Public Services Workers’ Union (PSWU) had previously postponed a strike planned for March 24th in hopes of reaching an agreement with the government.

However, the union felt compelled to take action due to the government’s slow response.

As a result of the strike, all NIA offices in the Ashanti Region, including district centers, regional offices, and premium centers, are closed. This has left many applicants stranded and frustrated, particularly those who traveled long distances to access NIA services.

Several applicants expressed their urgent need for the Ghana card, highlighting the potential disruption the strike could cause to their daily lives.

They are urging the government and relevant authorities to address the NIA’s concerns swiftly to minimize the impact on the public.
