The Registrar General's Department is appealing to government to reverse its decision on the 13% cap placed on the use of the Department's Internally Generated Funds, IGF.

Formerly the Registrar Generals Department was allowed to use 20% of its IGF but that has been reduced to 13%.

The Registrar General, Jemima Oware said the lack of funds is affecting the effective work of the Department, more especially as it has the added task of combating corruption in business.

She was presenting a paper on progress made on Ghana's commitment to legislation, business and Beneficial Ownership at a roundtable in Accra.

Radio Ghana's Rebecca Ekpe who participated, reports that the session meant to examine Ghana's progress since the 2016 UK Anti-Corruption Summit, was over-subscribed.
