Meanwhile, Mr Justice Gogoe, the Registration Officer at the Saint Paul’s Registration Centre, told the GNA that the exercise delayed because the biometric device was faulty but it was later repaired by the technician on duty and the exercise started around 0900 hours.

Mr Kwaku Owusu Addo, the Tarkwa-Nsueam Municipal Electoral Officer, told GNA that the Commission had estimated to register between 5000 and 7000 people by the end of the exercise.
