Two prisoners from the Ho prisons in the Volta Region have been successfully registered in the Biometric Electoral Roll.
Ms Emma Dilys Sawyerr-Laryea, Volta Regional Director of Prisons told the GNA that only the two had the requisite identification papers to qualify for registration.
Mr. Emmanuel Abeam Danso, Ho Municipal Director of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, corroborated the number saying indications were that the prisoners without the identification papers failed to get two people to guarantee their identities.
He said in some cases, some parents of inmates did not want to identify themselves with the prisoners.**
