Nkwanta (V/R), Sept.
8, GNA – The Birth and Death Registry at Nkwanta South Municipality in the
Volta Region is at the verge of collapse as basic logistics to aid service
delivery were unavailable.

Mr Suilemana Issah,
the Deputy Director of Births and Deaths of the Municipality, said the Registry
lacked equipment and electricity to facilitate its work, making it difficult to
gather information concerning births and deaths in the Municipality.

”Everything here is in
tatters, we only have two chairs and a table to sit on and when visitors come
they have to sit on a bench,” he told the Ghana News Agency in an interview.

”We have no suitable
office equipment and no electricity to carry out our duties and this building
is certainly not in good shape. It can collapse at anytime,” he said.

He urged government to
support with the provision of a new motorbike for the Registry and refurbish
the dilapidated office structure.

”I’m very poised to
carry out my duties effectively with improved facilities at my disposal,“ he
added.

Mr Issah commended
World Vision Ghana for its support to the office so far.

He said Nkwanta, in
2017, recorded 2,700 births, the highest in the Volta Region that year.
