Ghana’s vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia paid a surprise visit to the Registrar-General’s Department on Wednesday to identify the bottlenecks bedevilling the State outfit, according to a Starrfmonline.com.gh report.
Dr. Bawumia interacted with owners of businesses and ordinary Ghanaians who had gone to the Department to register their businesses.
He met a lot of people at the registry who also expressed their frustrations with the “bureaucratic processes” in registering their establishments.
According to Dr. Bawumia, his vision is to make Ghana a “business friendly country” and that dream must begin with the Registrar-General’s department.
Rwanda is currently ranked the most business-friendly country in Africa. Speaking later with the acting Registrar General Mrs. Jemima Oware, who was visibly stunned about the visit, Dr. Bawumia noted the Akufo-Addo-led administration is hoping to use the East African country’s feat as a “benchmark.”
