The Alafia Polling Station in Anloga in the Oforikrom Constituency was Nana Akufo-Addo’s first port of call.
He interacted with registration officials of the Electoral Commission, NPP polling agents and eligible voters, who were in a queue to be registered, there.
The NPP flagbearer urged agents of the NPP at the polling stations to remain vigilant and ensure that only eligible voters are registered, stressing that a credible voters’ register is the key to fostering confidence in the electoral process.
He also took the opportunity to interact with residents of Anloga and encouraged first time voters to register, as this will afford them the opportunity to decide who to vote for in this year’s election and also go a long way to determining the kind of future they want.
Nana Akufo-Addo’s next port of call was the Ejisu Constituency, where he visited the Bafoso Education Office (A) polling station, located within the premises of the Ejisu-Juaben Municipal Assembly.
Nana Agyeman Badu, the Registration Officer in-charge at the centre, told the NPP flagbearer that only three first time voters had registered at the centre as at 10am.
The registration officials and NPP polling agents indicated that the process had been smooth, with no hitches recorded.
Nana Akufo-Addo urged the NPP agents to remain vigilant and insist on potential voters possessing the requisite identification, in accordance with the law, and also disclosing their residential addresses before being allowed to register.
Whilst observing the processes being undertaken by the registration officials, market women and NPP sympathisers, who learnt of Akufo-Addo’s presence, thronged the premises of the Municipal Assembly to encourage him ahead of this year’s polls with chants of ‘Nana oo Nana’ and ‘2016 is your time’.
Nana Akufo-Addo will in the coming days also visit polling stations in the Western and Central Regions to monitor the registration exercise.
