The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has directed the National Identification Authority (NIA) to suspend the ongoing mass registration exercises in the Eastern Region

According to a statement signed by the Commissioner, Joseph Whittal on Thursday, the exercise poses a threat to the NIA staff, the communities involved and the entire nation.

“NIA’s action is a clear violation of the right to health and ultimately the right to life as stipulated under Articles 34(2), 13(1) and 33(5) of the 1992 Constitution (Constitution) respectively.”

He further called on President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Inter-Ministerial Committee to order the NIA to stop the registration exercises.
