43,480 people participated in the limited voter registration exercise in the Upper East Region. This is according to provisional results made public by the Regional Director of the EC, William Obeng Adakwarh.

Mr. Adakwarh shared these statistics when he spoke to Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show recently. 

“After the 21 days, barring the little exercise we are doing today, for those who were in the queue before 5 p.m., there were 43,480 registered. This is going to be an addition to the already existing register in the Upper East Region.”

The Upper East Regional Boss explained that the numbers recorded as part of the 21-day exercise are a fair representation of the interests of the people. 

“This was a limited exercise, and because of that, we are not surprised, nor are we disappointed. It is the number that the people volunteered to have themselves registered. 43,480 is a good number and a true reflection of what took place in the region,” he said. 

After the close of the exercise, Bongo District, Talensi District, Bolgatanga Municipality, Kassena-Nankana West District, and Kassena-Nankana Municipality were given a little extension for people in queues before the close of the day. 

Mr. Adakwarh was, however, unclear about the fate of residents in the Bawku Municipal area following the temporary ban on the limited registration exercise. According to him, at the regional level, he has submitted a report to the national level for further action and does not know the afterthoughts of his superiors.
