The Births and Deaths Registry under the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development has been directed to accept the registration of names they previously deemed titles.

The Registry came under public criticism for refusing to register certain names like Nana, Nii, Naa, Torgbe and other local names, claiming they are for chiefs and are not acceptable for registration under their laws.

This provoked Parliament to summon the sector minister, Hajia Alima Mahama, and the registrar, John Agbeko, for questioning.

Appearing before her colleague parliamentarians on Tuesday, Hajia Mahama told the House that she has directed the Registry to accept all Ghanaian names.

The Nalerigu-Gambaga Member of Parliament added that her ministry is working on a bill to be presented to Parliament to address the challenges.
