‘SOFTWARE FOR E.C IS THE BEST OPTION FOR VOTER REGISTRATION’- DR. GYAMERAH DISCLOSES
University of Cape Coast lecturer, Dr. Engineer Ebenezer Ankomah Gyamerah has disclosed in an interview with Alhaji Irbard Ibrahim on the maiden edition of Kantanka TV’s morning show, ‘Fontomfrom’ that the compilation of new voter register has become one major issue during this period of COVID-19 as Ghana prepares to go to the polls to vote. It is better to vote on 7th December, 2020 rather than postponing it since the risk of postponement is greater than voting during this period of COVID-19, he added.
According to him, creating a software platform for the Electoral Commission is a great way of reducing the spread of COVID-19 since the number of voters will reduce at the various polling stations when such application is used as individuals will register their new voter identification card online without any stress and only the illiterate will be the ones to join queues for registration.
Dr. Gyamera further reiterated that, if the new voters identification card is complemented there should be ways and means to practice culture maintenance to avoid financial cost in the near future to reduce the spread of covid-19 and make use of the global advancement of technology.
