Government has admonished all stakeholders in the ongoing voters’ registration exercise to observe the COVID-19 protocols.

Speaking at Thursday’s press briefing in Accra, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said “Government acknowledges the efforts of the Electoral Commission and security agencies to ensure that preventive etiquette including social distancing and wearing of masks is observed by persons who visit registration centers. But we believe more can be done by all stakeholders [like the] electoral commission, the security agencies and citizens who are visiting these centers especially in the cities and in the cosmopolitan areas. In the outskirt, you will find that there is a lot more observation and social distancing but in the cities and cosmopolitan areas where the population is high, in people’s rush, you will still find people who are not observing these protocols,”

He added that “The government can only do a certain number of things for you. Close the borders, impose restrictions on some activities pass laws that people should wear their masks and do a lot of public education but you as a citizen also have a responsibility. You have a personal responsibility to ensure that you observe social distancing no matter the excuse or no matter the desire whether it is to register or to do something else, you must wear the masks. So while we acknowledge that some are complying, the EC, the Police and some citizens are doing their best, we think that a lot more needs to be done”
