A young man in Ghana called Patrick Kwabena Stephenson has narrated how he was asked to pay GHc 85 to avoid joining a queue when he went to the passport office.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his personal Twitter handle, @patrickkwabena, he explained that one of the officials indicated it was a VIP service for anyone who would not prefer to wait in the queue.
Although it was described to be a 'small fee', Kwabena said he declined the offer but was still able to get attended to in just a matter of 10 minutes.

Patrick Kwabena Stephenson conjectured that the system that operates at the passport office is a really nice one and he did not understand why there should be such a bypass.
However, it is thinkable that the passport office decided to introduce the VIP service as a means of generating some extra income from anyone who would like to get sorted quickly.
As a lady with the handle, @ABYalley explained:
This is not necessarily protocoling. It is just paying for express service which the UK embassy does. People always want convenience, so it is not necessarily bad.
