Mr Acheampong used the opportunity to donate 10,000 hand sanitizers and 10,000 face masks for onward distribution to the registrants.
After the back and forth over the need or otherwise of a new electoral roll, the Electoral Commission (EC) commenced its month-long nationwide voters registration exercise on June 30.
The EC has argued that the compilation of the register is an ingredient for a free and fair election on December 7, 2020.
The exercise will be held in some 6788 clusters made up of five registration centres each across the country. It will be conducted in 5 phases, each phase spanning 6 days with additional days for mop-up.
