Why EC must extend days for registration – Prof Naana Jane explains

Running mate for John Dramani Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang has called on the Electoral Commission to extend the number of days it intends to register new Ghanaian voters.

She is of the view that with the glaring challenges being faced during the exercise, it is just right that the Commission ensures that lost times are made up for.

Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang made this known when she addressed the media after her tour of some parts of Ayawaso among other constituencies.

She said “I visited some designated voter registration centers this morning after a chaotic start to the exercise yesterday. While I understand that machines do break down, I did not expect the breakdown to occur on such a large scale with consistent problems.

I am also informed that some centers could not start yesterday as planned, while other locations registered just a handful due to challenges with the EC’s devices. I sincerely hope that the EC makes up for the lost time and pray that the glitches will be reduced, and we’ll have a smooth registration exercise where no one will be frustrated into thinking the process is very difficult and won’t register”.
