Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has paid a working visit to the Passport Office in Accra to observe operations at the facility.
Majority of Ghanaians have complained about delays and the corruption that has riddled the Passport Office. Several people who have applied for passports claim it takes months or years for one to secure a passport which should normally take only a few weeks.
Dr. Bawumia as part of his visit to the Passport office interacted with applicants and workers of the State Institution.
He also interacted with Deputy Director of Passport, Accra regional office Samuel Ofosu Boateng.
This is the third of such unannounced visits by the Vice President to various State Institutions after he was sworn-in.
In January, the Vice President visited the Ports and Harbours Authority and the Registrar General’s department to identify the bottlenecks and to acquaint himself with the activities of the state institution, and also to find out its challenges.
Dr. Bawumia is also expected to visit the Precious Minerals Marketing Company (PMMC) in Accra on Thursday.
