Newborn babies will be issued Ghana card numbers a few days after their birth, the vice president of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said.
He stated that these children will be issued the Ghana card later after age six when their biometrics are fully formed.
This, he said will begin later this year.
Additionally, he said the process of digitalization of records is almost complete.
“We are integrating the births and deaths register with the databases of Ghana Health Service, National Identification Authority, Ghana Statistical Service, Immigration and the Police so that the record of births and deaths should be consistent across all these databases. This is expected to start later this year.”
