THE ATTORNEY-General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame has assured the Office of the Registrar of Companies (ORC) every needed support to make its work seamlessly smooth.
Speaking at the grand opening of the ORC’s Ashanti Regional Office complex on Monday in Kumasi, Mr Dame said the effective functioning of the ORC would ultimately yield dividends to the government.
To achieve this, the Minister mentioned plans to make all aspects of the ORC’s operations digitalized.
He also disclosed the plan by government to facilitate the recruitment of the necessary staff to carry out required duties at the ORC.
“The effective operations of the ORC would help businesses to do well and this is why government promises to provide every support the office would need to realise its goals and undertake its mandate very well”, the AG stated.
Registrar General of ORC:
Addressing the gathering earlier, Jemima Maama Oware, Registrar General of the ORC said the new office complex would enhance the pace of work in the Ashanti region.
She noted that the office spaces would provide the needed comfort for staff to give off their best in carrying out their functions.
Currently, she said the ORC was operating some aspects of its mandates manually but would soon go full digital.
“We would want to eliminate unnecessary delays in registering businesses as well as supporting government activities so we would apply full digital models in our operations so that we can function flawlessly and seamlessly”, the ORC head stated.
Representative of the Regional Minister:
Speaking on behalf of the Ashanti Regional Minister, Mrs Emelia Ayebeng Botchway, the Coordinating Director at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council’s (ARCC) pledged her office’s support to the ORC.
She noted that the doors of the ARCC remained open to provide administrative assistance to companies as well as state agencies that were operating in the Ashanti Region.
“The ARCC remains open to offer support and assistance to the ORC and other state agencies operating in the region so that government business could thrive and yield the needed impact to the economy and its people”, Mrs Botchway stated.
The ORC conferred honours on its past and present Registrar Generals.
The two as well as others including its Board Chairman and the Ashanti Regional Registrar were presented with specially designed plaques for their services.
The office also highly commended the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Attorney-General for taking particular interest in the operations of the ORC and working to provide the support it needed to make it more functional.
