SONA 2022: No more “football age” in Ghana – Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo has said the Ghana Card has been fully integrated into the system for use in every facet of the lives of Ghanaian citizens.

Addressing parliament in his 2022 State of the Nation Address(SONA) on Wednesday, President Akufo-Addo said when one registers for National Health Insurance, the details of the identification will be the same as the details on a driving licence, a passport as well as on tax identification.

He revealed that operations of the Births and Deaths Registry are finally being digitised to make sure that documents issued from that department are accorded the respect they should have.

“Never again will it be that someone, born in this country, will live a full life, die and be buried, without any record of his or her existence,” he explained.

In that regard, he maintained “every child born in this country will be registered, and the date of birth registered will remain your date of birth throughout your life. There will be no school age, no football age, no SSNIT age, and no official age.”
