The Electoral Commission of Ghana is set to do a mop up registration exercise for students in the second cycle institutions across the country to capture every student who attained the voting age.
In a statement issued by the Ghana Education Service signed by its Public Relations Officer CASSANDRA TWUM AMPOFO states that, the Electoral Commission of Ghana led by Mrs. Jean Mensa has arranged with the Ghana Education Service to do a mop up registration in all SHS/TVETS without registration centres across the country to register eligible students tomorrow Saturday 18 July 2020.
The statement further clarifies that, the Electoral Commission’s arrangement has become very necessary to allow eligible students who wish to be registered but could not get the opportunity during the EC’s first registration exercise to do so in the second phase.
All political parties have been advised by the Ghana Education Service to strictly observe all the necessary safety protocols in the various schools across Ghana for the safety of students and their teachers. They are also cautioned to avoid any political activities on the various school campuses.
