YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the voters' registration exercise took off with a lot of opposition and challenges from many stakeholders.

Their reason for not accepting the voters' registration exercise is due to fears of the coronavirus that has killed 129 people in Ghana so far.

The infection of over 200 health workers, including 99 medical doctors, resulted in a petition to the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) to halt the ongoing mass voter registration exercise in order to prevent Ghana from suffering potentially thousands of deaths from coronavirus.
