Sissala West electoral commission officer, Mr. Mawuli said a total number of 2,164 have been registered across the district during the limited voter’s registration exercise which ended on July 7.
He however said they have failed to capture a target number of 2,500 new persons due to various reasons. He attributed the inability to achieve the target figure to unreadiness on the part of some new persons, farming activities, inadequate logistics and personnel to go to all remote communities among others.
Speaking on RadfordFM local news at 5:00pm on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, Mr. Mawuli said he agreed, ‘to ‘some extent’, with calls especially, from the NDC for extension of the exercise with regard to the challenges recorded during the registration exercise.
