It's not EC's job to share nose masks at registration centres - Atik Mohammed

Atik Mohammed has called on political figures and Ghanaians to stop worrying the Electoral Commission (EC) to give them nose masks at the registration centres.

The EC's registration exercise began on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, and is aimed at compiling a new voters' register for the upcoming general elections and all other national elections.

The ongoing exercise is taking place in over 33,000 polling stations across the country.

Some participants have expressed their displeasure with the EC's inability to provide them with nose masks despite assuring Ghanaians that they will take all COVID-19 health protocols into account.

Addressing the issue on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Atik Mohammed stated emphatically that sharing nose or face masks to attendees to the registration centres shouldn't be the responsibility of the Electoral Commission.

"It's not their job," he stated and wondered how people even go to the registration centres unmasked when President Nana Akufo-Addo has ordered a mandatory wearing of masks by every citizen.

" . . the E.I states that you can't leave your home without wearing the face or nose mask. So, by law, it is even criminal or it's an offence to step out of your home without wearing the mask. So, how do you get to the registration centre in the first place?''
