Massive Registration Turnout In Volta Region As Over 72,000 Persons Register In Just 3 Days
Contrary to popular assertions that inhabitants of the Volta Region might not turn up in their numbers to register as a result of the heavy military presence in the Area, the figures speak otherwise as the region has recorded an overwhelming registration turnout in just 3 days.
According to the Volta Regional Directorate of the Electoral Commission, The Volta Regional Directorate of the Electoral Commission has issued a total of 72, 257 new voter cards to citizens after three days of registration, which started on June, 30.
The third day had 27,832 people being issued with cards with the second and first days recording 24,912 and 19,513 respectively.
Volta Regional Director of the Electoral Commission, Dogbey Adukpo Selormey said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency.
He said the daily activities at each centre from the districts and regional offices are uploaded to the national data centre, which makes it possible to know the figures accordingly.
He said the increasing daily output means there is positive action on the ground adding that if this momentum is maintained the exercise would be deemed to be successful.
“I am exceptionally grateful to the people for the peaceful nature of the exercise in the region. I commend the people for their buy-in, which should be applauded,” he said.
