The National Coordinator of the Ghana National Household Registry, Dr. Prosper Laari, says about 184,125 households were captured in a data collected in 2018 in the Upper East Region.

According to the data from the Ghana Household registry, the then Garu-Tempane district which is now Garu district and Tempane district topped the chart as the most extreme poor district with Bolgatanga Municipality being the least poor in the region.

This came to light at the Ghana National Household Registry’s workshop to unveil the results collected in 2018 in Bolgatanga.

The Ghana National Household Registry was established in 2015  to create a single National Household Register from which all social protection programmes will select their beneficiaries.

The Director of Research, Statistics and Information Management at the Office of the Head of the Local Government Service, Dr. Charles Kessey, asked the various district assemblies in the region to make good use of the data, saying it will give impetus to the development of their medium-term development plan as well as the Annual Action Plan.

The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison, said the mandate of the Ghana National Household Registry is in line with government’s policy to develop an integrated programme for the registration and eventual selection of all persons into a common data base for purposes of targeting them for LEAP and other social protection interventions.

The Gender Minister in an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana explained the measures her outfit is putting in place to resolve issues of payment of caterers under the school feeding programme across the country.

Madam Cynthia Morrison, was hopeful that the data for Northern, North East, Savannah, Central and Volta Regions will be completed this year to finish with the threshold of the very poorest region in the country.
