- The Registrar General said it is difficult stopping middle men from operating at her office
The Registrar-General, Jemima Oware, has said that she cannot stop ‘goro boys’ from operating at her department.
She said these middlemen are also human beings trying to make a living for themselves.
The Registrar-General made the statement during a multi-stakeholder business integrity forum organized by the Ghana Integrity Initiative.
“The goro boys are human beings, they are Ghanaians and I cannot throw them out of my front office,” Madam Oware said.
She said individuals who do business with the Registrar-General’s Department should rather be smart.
According to her, some people deliberately ignore the right process and rather deploy the services of ‘goro boys’.
“That is why I said that when you get to the front office, deal with the officers who are in the cages who are properly tagged and go through the process yourself,” she added.
The Registrar General's Department, Passport Office and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, DVLA are centres where middlemen are prevalent.
In recent times, there have been anti-corruption campaigns to fight against the payment of facilitation fees at both private and public business centers.
