Upper East Regional Passport Office delay attributed to bureaucratic processes

There have been renewed delays in the construction of the Upper East Regional Passport Office located in Bolgatanga, the capital of the Upper East Region. The initial delay was attributed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ decision to redesign the facility.

Following the completion of the new design, it was communicated that, if all things proceeded as planned, the contractor would finish the facility and hand it over to the Ministry by the end of August 2023.

With just a few days left in the month, minimal progress has been observed at the construction site, prompting serious concerns among residents in the region. These concerns are rooted in their previous doubts about the comments made by the Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu, regarding the project’s completion.

When speaking with A1 Radio’s Mark Smith about the ongoing construction delay, despite the new design being finalized, Alhaji Abubakr Inusah, Chief Director of the Upper East Regional Coordination Council, explained that these delays are a result of redundant processes within public offices.

“The redesign has been done. Initially where they thought the face of the facility should be, they didn’t have access roads so they have to redesign the whole place. I have spoken to the contractor and it is not about funds. Currently, what is holding it is, excuse me to say, we the bureaucrats. The technicians who are supposed to redesign the structure, you know it went with cost and that is what is delaying it,” he explained.
