The Electoral Commission has advised Ghanaians partaking in the ongoing voter registration exercise to take full control of their health since the Commission cannot be held accountable for any spike in COVID-19 cases.

Director of Electoral Services at the Commission, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe, in response to calls by the Ghana Medical Association for the Commission to be held responsible for increase in Coronavirus cases, said the applicants are “grown ups” and should be responsible for their own health.

The voter registration exercise, which commenced in parts of the country on Tuesday, June 30, saw many applicants flouting social distancing directives, which security personnel doing very little or nothing about it.

Though the EC, in a statement, said those challenges will be resolved going forward, the GMA, like many Ghanaians believe the Commission should be partly responsible for any surge in COVID-19 cases, especially when concerns of non-adherence to protocols were raised prior to the exercise.

Speaking on Accra-based Joy FM, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe said, “We are talking about adults who should know what is right therefore people should take their own health into their own hands.”

“Let us let people know the implications of their actions instead of putting out threats. The most important thing is that every Ghanaian must be committed to that. If you go there and you see that the protocols are not working, help educate the people. I think that will give more results instead of the threats,” he added.
