The BoG further entreated all institutions concerned to ensure that their database is updated with their customers’ Ghana card details.

The statement also said BoG is working to integrate the NIA’s verification transaction platform into its monitoring systems for ‘Know Your Customer’ purposes.

“This is to ensure that all financial transactions performed within the ecosystem are linked to one identity and information, and unique codes for the transactions shared with the Bank of Ghana (BoG) to facilitate the identification of initiators/beneficiaries for track and trace purposes,” portions of the release signed by BoG Secretary, Sandra Thompson read.
