The Upper East Regional Director of the Electoral Commission (EC), William Obeng Adarkwah, has advised persons who are under the age of 18 to desist from making attempts to register for the voter Identification  (ID) cards at the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.

According to him, apart from the fact that such conduct is against the laws of the country and people caught would be liable for punishment, they would be putting themselves at risk for their future endeavors.

He noted that age forms a major component for job entries in the country, and minors registering the card now would eventually affect their ability to secure some jobs in the country.

The Director revealed this when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East show regarding a viral video about individuals perceived to be minors who were bused to the EC office at the Builsa South District to register.

He said political parties, as stakeholders, play a major role in the ongoing exercise and called on them and parents to desist from instigating minors to enroll themselves onto the voter register.

Mr. Adarkwah emphasized that such attempts have the tendency to undermine the voter register, which would burden the taxpayer in the event of a new register due to blotting.
