Birim Central registers over 75,000 voters
Akim Oda (E/R), May 05, GNA – The Birim Central
office of the Electoral Commission (EC) has
registered over 75,000 voters in the just ended
nationwide biometric registration exercise.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency at his office at
Akim Oda in the Eastern Region on Friday, Mr John
Appiah Baffoe, the EC Municipal Officer, said
there was a smooth operation of the exercise in
the municipality hence the huge turnout.
He said though there were break-down of laptops
and printers, his outfit quickly repaired them for
work to proceed.
Mr Baffoe noted that the frequent public
announcements on the radio, the churches, markets
and “house to house”, among others went down well
with the electorate who registered massively.
The Municipal EC Officer stated that “there were
245 casual workers who were employed for 40
clusters, under the 123 registration centres”.
He commended his office staff, the casual workers
and the police for working diligently and
vigorously to ensure a successful registration
