YEN.com.gh has also reported that health workers stationed at the various voter registration centres are unhappy about a slash in their allowances.
The Electoral Commission announced three weeks ago that 7,000 health personnel have been deployed for the registration exercise.
They are tasked with ensuring the necessary COVID-19 safety protocols are adhered to by all registrants.
According to a nurse who reached out to YEN.com.gh, their allowances have been slashed.
She explained that health workers at the various registration centres used to get GHc100 per day, but it has now been reduced to GHc70.
