The National Identification Authority (NIA) has completed building its verification platform, to enable all financial institutions to accept the Ghana Card for transactions.
Already Stanbic Bank, Calbank and UBA have started accepting the Ghana Card as a form of verification for banking transactions.
This follows the successful onboarding of the three banks’ verification systems to the NIA platform.
All other banks have been given a grace period of up to the end of the year 2021, to build and onboard their systems to the platform and connect all their branches.
The Head of Corporate Affairs at the NIA, Mr Abudu Abdul-Ganiyu, made this known in a radio interview monitored by Graphic Online on Accra based Neat FM Thursday morning (October 14, 2021).
Banks have not been accepting the Ghana Card as a form of verification for transactions with the explanation that they do were not yet onboard the verification platform.
