The Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference has asked the government to deploy more security personnel to the various registration centers for the mass voter registration exercise to enforce strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols.
According to the Conference, it is worried about the increasing COVID-19 infections. The Bishops lament what they describe as the high level of disregard for the observance of the safety measures at such public gatherings at the ongoing mass voter registration exercise.
They cited the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries held in June, as well as the unveiling of NDC Flagbearer Mahama’s running mate on Monday as events that breached the Covid 19 safety protocols.
In a statement signed by President of the Bishops’ Conference, Most Reverend Philip Naameh, the Bishops say the wearing of nose masks and social distancing must be strictly enforced at the registration centers.
