Madam Jean Mensah, Chairman for the Electoral commission in a statement, has urged all Ghanaians to come out and register in the New Voters Register as their actions and decisions are without fear and favor: “Our decisions and actions are taken without fear or favour or without recourse to any persons. I urge Ghanaians to move out and register. Let us join hands to ensure that every Ghanaian is able to register, and nobody will be left out.”
The controverted EC Boss said this to a group of 44,000 registration officers enrolled for the registration exercise set to commence today, 30th June, 2020.
“A major concern a number of citizens have raised with us has to do with the quality of our temporary officers. We have recruited, trained, and deployed over 44, 000 staff into the field. We are confident that the training provided them to operate efficiently and professionally. As part of the training, we have drummed home the importance of instilling in them the principles of integrity, fairness, and transparency in all their activities throughout the registration process.
“It is important to note that the Ghana Health Service released some 7,000 health assistance to each of the registration centres nationwide. It is expected that the health assistance will assist us in ensuring strict adherence to the safety protocols outlined by the Electoral Commission and all of these safety measures, we will rely on your cooperation dear citizens,” Madam Jean revealed.
