“Is this where Ghana has gotten to?! It’s sad and so unspoken of Us. After buying the form for 50ghc or 100ghc depending on how fast u want it,which actually ranges from 1month to 3months u still need to pay#Bribebefore u can have ur own passport?At the initial stage she was asked to pay ghc400ghc if she wanted to have the passport fast,she said she wasn’t in hurry and that she cld wait for the 3months to have the passport(maybe she cld not even afford this amount requested). Then after 4months of waiting,this is what she gets in return. I have personally gone to check on her passport on 4 different occasions and in all they always claim is not inn yet. Why Ghana ?! Why Passport Office?!???. This is even renewal of passport. A Medical Student who studies in China. She’s almost done but has to go back for another year and this is how best passport office or sm individuals in passport office can treat her ?!”
