The voter registration exercise in the Akatsi South constituency has received a commendable boost after the Akatsi South branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) established a mobilization team aimed at driving eligible voters in the various 132 branches in the constituency to the registration center.
The formation of the mobilization team became necessary after the party realized that the turnout was low
The team’s efforts will ensure that eligible voters who may have challenges with transportation and other logistics will be able to register and exercise their voting rights in the upcoming elections.
This initiative has provided a much-needed boost to the voter registration exercise in Akatsi South and is expected to increase the number of registered voters in the constituency.
In a statement signed by Mr. Japhet Festus Gbede, he applauded the party’s constituency executives’ dedication to ensuring maximum participation in the democratic process and encouraged other constituencies in the region to take similar steps to encourage voter registration.
The efforts made by the Akatsi South branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to establish a mobilization team aimed at driving eligible voters to the registration center are indeed commendable, Mr. Gbede stated.
The success of this initiative will not only lead to increased voter turnout but also contribute positively towards building a more inclusive and representative democracy.
According to Mr. Wisdom Akpabli, the Deputy Treasurer of the Akatsi South NDC, the mobilization team was created in response to the low turnout during the first four days of the registration exercise.
As of the fourth day, only a little over 56 eligible voters had been registered at the Akatsi South EC office. Reportedly, this has prompted the constituency executives of Akatsi South to form a mobilization and supervision team, which includes Mr. Antony Owusu Westfalia, Mr. Solo Adotevi, Sulleymana Seidu, and Mr. Daniel Dagba.
