THE ELECTORAL Commission (EC), from all indications, has an arduous task ahead to deal with, as reports emerging indicate that several people who registered during the voter registration exercise in Kumasi cannot find their names in the compiled register.
Reports have it that about 600 people that duly registered during the exercise at the Oforikrom constituency in Kumasi could not trace their names in the register during the exhibition exercise.
This unfortunate incident reportedly, caused some discomfort for the outraged people, whose present conditions if not changed, could mean they would not cast their votes during the December polls.
Osei-Kyei-Mensah Bonsu, the minority leader in Parliament disclosed that reports reaching him indicated that so many people could not trace their names in the register at Oforikrom constituency.
According to him, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Oforikrom constituency, Elizabeth Agyeman called him on phone to inform him about the large number of people that could not find their names in the register.
Hon. Mensah Bonsu disclosed on Kessben FM that he has been receiving other reports about people not finding their names in the register since the exhibition exercise started in other places in Kumasi.
Meanwhile, Lawyer Kwadwo Afriyie, the NPP General Secretary, has tasked NPP MPs especially in the Ashanti Region to find time out of their tight schedules and visit their various constituencies to monitor the exhibition exercise.
Affectionately called ‘Sir John,’ the NPP scribe said the party wanted to win the Ashanti regional elections by a wider margin to help it to unseat the ruling NDC who were currently messing up the country.
He observed that the NPP could only unseat the under-performing NDC administration when the party members became serious and monitored the December polls with an eagle eye.
Sir John therefore entreated NPP members to start vigorous campaign and avoid all acts of complacency that could prevent the party from winning the next general elections.
