REG CEN 2

The Deputy Regional Director for the Electoral Commission Mr. Osman Ali has indicated strongly that there isn’t any need for an extension of the just ended limited registration exercise. Speaking to w935online.com he was emphatic that all those who were willing to register within the region had done it. ‘Within the last two days of the registration only very few people went to register this shows that almost all those who wished to register have done that’.

According to him, the police have been very helpful in ensuring an incident free registration. ‘The police did their work well especially when tensions mounted in some areas this has led to a violent free registration process’.

The Deputy Regional Director for the EC in the Upper West Region also indicated that the close collaboration between the EC and the Ghana Federation of the Disabled made the exercise smooth for the disabled. ‘We met with them during the exercise and have been in close touch with their leadership and through our deliberations we have been able to resolve their concerns.

Checks by w935online.com on Sunday which was the last day for the registration, revealed how the registration officials at some centres were idling because there were no persons available to register.

The EC of Ghana initiated a ten day registration exercise for first timers and any others who had failed to register in the past.

The W93.5FM Lanbuuri Limited Voter Sensitization initiative is a project funded by STAR-Ghana to foster inclusiveness, unity, equity and kinsmenship amongst citizens regardless of political affiliation, gender, age, religion, privilege, ethnicity and physical capability or otherwise.

Registration Centres Are Disability Friendly – GFD

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someone

The secretary to the Ghana Federation of the Disabled Mr. Ibrahim Saani has expressed his satisfaction over the improvements made at registration centres which have become more disability friendly. Speaking to W935News, he noted that in the past many registration centres were not accessible to the disable fraternity. ‘Our people most especially the physically challenged found it very difficult using their wheel chairs to access the registration points but now things appear to have changed.’
Mr. Ibrahim Saani also went ahead to state that one of the issues which made people from his Federation stay away from previous registration exercises was having to join the regular queues for long hours, but this he says has become a thing of the past. ‘Now the EC has directed registration officers to attend to us as soon as we arrive at the centre.’ He also took the opportunity to call on the able bodied in queues to understand this and not insult them.

Second Leg of Voter Registration Resumes

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someone


REG 4

The Limited Voter Registration exercise has resumed after a day’s break. The W93.5FM Lambuuri team supported by STAR-Ghana, witnessed registration kick-start in several areas in the Jirapa district. The figures show that the exercise is gathering momentum as day one of the second leg has tremendously surpassed day one of the first leg. The Wa municipality was no different as several first timers were seen queuing up at the various registration centres.

Speaking to w935fmnews, the District Chief Executive for Jirapa Hon. Cletus Dapila expressed his satisfaction and linked it to the W93.5FM Lanbuuri project, supported by STAR-Ghana. He said, ‘I think your partnership has been helpful in getting people out to register.’

Deputy Regional Director of the EC said, ‘We worked so hard to prevent all difficulties in the first phase of the limited registration across the region and I’m sure we are on course.’ However, reports show the Sissala West District is facing the challenge of low turnout due to the distance people would have to travel to get registered. Residents of Kandia for instance, have to travel a distance up to 15 kilometers from an area where reliable public transport is limited to market days.
Alhassan Dimbie a resident of Kandia said he does not have money to take a vehicle to register and come back home. He said, ‘As I stand here I don’t have money to buy fertilizer for my farm so am thinking of how to get that. I just completed SHS and I don’t have that money so am looking for it. If they set up a centre at Kandia or Boti, I will register.’

Chief Executive of the Sissala West district Bukari Dramani,  confirmed the challenge, “I think the distances are far apart. I can’t imagine our people moving from Kandia to Pulima to register in this exercise.  I will suggest to the EC to create some makeshift registration centres to help those who live far from the centres.’

W93.5fm will keep you updated.

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someone

The deputy Upper West Regional Director for the Electoral Commission has stated that the limited registration exercise has not been met with any significant setback. Speaking to w935fm.com, he expressed his satisfaction with the process so far. ‘We are very happy at the resilience of our upgraded equipment and the pace of our data entry clerks as well. The conduct of the political party representatives has is also commendable’ Mr. Ali Osman added.

The Deputy Regional Director also said the number of first timers is encouraging which according to him arises from the publicity that has been carried out.

Checks by w935fm.com reveal that within the Nadowli-Kaleo constituency and the Wa Central constituency that the number of first timers going for the registration is steadily increasing. Reports confirm this is the result of the break given to Senior High School students who are eligible to go home and register to vote.

A first timer Miss Adelin Dery who spoke to our reporter at Kabanye Health administration registration center in the Wa municipality attributed her decision to register to vote on the W93.5FM and STAR- Ghana Lambuuri sensitization project which took place at St Francis Girls Senior High School in the Jirapa district.
