According to him, most members in the villages will have to travel to the nearby town – Hohoe to be able to take their passport pictures which could cost each member an estimated amount of GHc12.00 and “absorbing the cost of the passport picture taking and payment of the GHc1.00 registration fee means a lot to them”
“I have deployed my team from Accra to start the exercise by taking the passport pictures and paying the GHc1.00 for all members when I noticed affording the costs associated with the exercise was becoming a challenge to many which can possibly render most of them unregistered” – Mr. Tawia said.
“We started from Agbesia, covering the entire Leklebi Traditional Area, the team is now heading towards Ve Traditional Area and other parts in the constituency here the members may need this services” – He added.
