The National Youth Organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Ludwig Akpene Hlodze, has urged representatives of political parties monitoring the ongoing biometric registration to ensure that they secure the integrity of the biometric voters register.

He said it was their responsibility, irrespective of the political party they represent, to ensure that minors and non-Ghanaians did not take advantage to have their names in the register.

Mr Hlodze made the call when he addressed representatives of political parties at various registration centres in the Eastern and Volta regions as part of his nationwide tour to monitor progress of work on the biometric registration.

“The NDC Youth Organiser congratulated the agents on the mature nature they had conducted themselves throughout the exercise and encouraged them to maintain the same team spirit and ensure that they co-operate with Electoral Commission officials at the stations to make the exercise successful”.

Zoning in on the NDC agents at the registration centres, he commended them for sacrificing their time, energy and efforts for the cause of the party and urged them to always use the challenge forms to challenge the registration of people they had concrete evidence that they were either not Ghanaians or minors.

The visit started from the Eastern Region and took him to Lower Manya, Yilo Krobo, Atimpoku and Juapong in the Volta Region.

He visited polling stations where registration was ongoing and familiarised himself with the events of the day.

Turn out at the various centres he visited was impressive and the exercise was described as peaceful and event free throughout the beginning of registration last week Saturday. An average of 350 people registered throughout the centres with some stations recording as high as 500 registered voters.

He was accompanied by youth organisers of some constituencies and the Regional Youth Organiser, Kwaku Asamoah.

The tour also took him to the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions last Friday and Saturday respectively.
