NABCO Trainees at Adenta start working with NIA today

The National Identification Authority (NIA) has employed some NABCO Trainees for the just started Nationwide Mass National Registration exercise. You can read more about the new Ghana Card here.

Last month, we reported that some NABCO Trainees were receiving SMS to come for NIA Training.

A lot of the people who did not receive the message had said that was lying and that placement had not started.

Well, for those who had the message, they are very happy now.


Most of these trainees are from Adenta, Madina and surrounding areas.

Although some people have said that those who are working starting from today are mainly on a sort of “Protocol List”, we can confirm that that is not entirely true. We personally know some people who were placed there on merit.

Most of those selected will be working as registration officers. The good thing is that these NABCO trainees have already been issued their Ghana Cards.

Here are all the registration centres for the Ghana Card in Accra: ghana-card-registration-nia

The NIA CEO, Ken Attafuah told Citi News that: “The strategy is to be in the Greater Accra Region for about two to three months registering every Ghanaian and then we go to the Volta Region, Northern Region, Upper East, Upper West, Brong Ahafo, Western Region, Ashanti Region, Eastern Region and then we end with the Central Region,”.

This means that the NABCO Trainees may likely only work with the NIA in their district. However, given the cost incurred in training them, it will make more sense if the same people did for at least the whole Greater Accra Region.

Per the information we have from the venue, the registration has still not started. Once it starts, we will bring your pictures.

Thank you NIA and NABCO for the good work done so far. We hope for more Module Implementation Partners to follow suit and place all trainees.
