Aye Paye commends Ayorkor Botchwey’s campaign against Passport Office employees


Former Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ayensuano Constituency in the Eastern Region, Samuel Aye Paye, has applauded Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister of Foreign Affairs, for taking a firm position against alleged corruption-related activities at the Passport Office.
