Nana Addo calls for massive participation in EC’s exhibition exercisefThe 2016 Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akuffo Addo has appealed to voters to fully participate in the upcoming voters’ register exhibition to guarantee the party’s victory in the November polls.

The Electoral Commission will from Monday open the voters’ register to allow prospective voters to confirm their names in the electoral roll.

“The Electoral Commission will from next week Monday open the voter register for eligible voters to confirm whether their names have been duly captured. As a matter of fact I urge all of you to take part in the process so that the necessary changes will be effected before the election. If you do not do that you will not be allowed to vote on the day election so I will appeal that you make sure you corporate with the process.”
