PNC Stalwart, Atik Mohammed has advised Ghanaians to observe the social distancing and health protocols at the various registration centres across the nation.Atik Mohammed urged the eligible people who participate in the ongoing new voters' registration exercise to obey instructions from the electoral officers.
He advised that they shouldn't be annoyed when an electoral officer directs them to take their seats at specific places at the polling stations saying it is part of measures to ensure social distancing.
"It is because there has been to be order. It is only when there's order that you can have the observance of these protocols done properly," Atik said on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo'.
He also added that the registration exercise including the mop-up exercise by the Electoral Commission (EC) will last for 43 days to ensure all persons have registered their names, so they shouldn't be worried and cram at the centres to cause overcrowding.
The new voters' registration exercise began on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 and is taking place in over 33,000 polling stations across the country.
"This will prevent a lot of people gathering at one place," Samuel Tetteh, a Deputy Chairperson of the EC in-Charge of Operations said in an interview on 'Kokrokoo'.
