The Accra High Court has dismissed an application to seeking to prevent the NIA from carrying out the Ghana Card registration exercise in the Eastern Region over the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Court presided by Justice Anthony Oppong in his ruling explained that President Akuffo-Addo’s directive on public gathering did not including the registration exercise.
Justice Oppong however directed that the NIA must observe certain protocols including social distancing.
The NIA suspended the exercise in the Eastern Region after two citizens, Kevow Mark-Oliver and Emmanuel Akumatey Okrah sued the authority for an interlocutory injunction to the registration.
The NIA subsequently suspended the registration exercise due to the injunction.
