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.
