The Chief Director for the Upper East Regional Coordinating Council (UERCC), Alhaji Abubakar Inusah, has admitted to delays in the completion of the Regional Passport Office in Bolgatanga.

The Passport Office, which was to be completed many months ago, has seen continuous delays and shifts in completion timelines.

The delays in the completion of the project have been described as unacceptable by many residents in the Upper East Region, who say a functional passport office in the region would relieve them of the stress involved in acquiring the document.

When Alhaji Inusah spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith, he stated that there has been a further re-design of the project, thus the delay in its completion.

“There are projects which just started and are nearing completion, but this one keeps lingering on. My information is that it is a result of the scope of work; changing the design to meet a certain standard.”

“My information again is that, when the project is finally completed, it would be the best in the whole country. As we speak, they have increased the scope of work. The new work that has been added includes a security gate, fence wall, soft and hard landscaping, and some high-tech installations for data collection and storage,” he said.

Alhaji Inusah stated that all things being equal, the contractor should receive an official letter detailing the new scope of work on Friday. The contractor would then return to work fully.

Meanwhile, some payments have been made to the contractor, thus removing concerns around a shortage of funds for the project to continue, Alhaji Inusah stated.

He added that at a recent visit by official from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, it was stated that the project should be complete by June, 2024.
