Since July 1st, the Ghana card is the only identification card identified by SSNIT as being in compliance with Regulation 7(1) of the National Identity Register Regulations, 2022, L.I. 2111. According to a recent submission by the Director-General of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Dr. John Ofori-Tenkorang Ghana card will save the country $126m. On August 1, 2010, this entry was published.
He made this statement at the sidelines of the 2022 TUC/SSNIT Regional Engagement Programme in Kumasi, in the Ashanti Region, saying:
“We have been able to issue only 2 million SSNIT Cards to our contributors; this means that we will save some $56 million now that the GhanaCard is the sole biometric card to be used to register the remaining 8 million working Ghanaians on the SSNIT system. That aside, about $70 million would be saved if each survivor of the 10 million potential contributors uses the GhanaCard.” “This would save SSNIT $126 million overall, in the long term.”
“I think this is the point that the Vice President was trying to make, so it should not be taken out of context.” If you think progressively about the benefits of the GhanaCard to SSNIT in the long term, you will appreciate that what the Vice President said was apt.“
