Commencing from the 10th through 24th September 2018 the National Civil Registration Authority (NCRA ) will embark on a Biometric Verification, Registration & Update exercise in order to capture personal data of all public and Civil Servants who are paid from the Consolidated Revenue Fund. The exercise will, on a daily basis, start from 7:00 AM and end at 6:00 PM at all District Centre Halls and other designated centres.
Government workers, who were registered during the 2017 Voter Registration and Mass Civil Registration exercises, will be targeted in order to confirm their details by 17 September 2018.
This Press House was also intimated that Government workers, who, for any other reason/s, did not register during the 2017 Voter Registration and Mass Civil Registration exercises, MUST register with the NCRA against 17 September 2018.
What again was made clear is that all Civil and Public Servants who are targeted must produce their Voter IDs, Receipts of Registration done during the Mass Civil Registration Phase, National IDs, Sierra Leone Passports, Appointment Letters, Posting Letters and Letters of Attestation from their respective MDAs.
