The last day of the limited voter registration has seen massive turn outs in almost all the designated centers and other additional centers that were created in the Northern region.

When Radio Ghana visited the Sagnarigu municipal EC office and the Tamale metro office, hundreds of registrants had thronged the two centres to go through the registration process.

The security had tough time controlling the crowd. Some of the people said they went to the centres between early hours of three and five so as to get registered on time but as of the time of the interview, they had not been registered.

While, some blamed the EC officials and party agents for preferential treatment thus slowing the pace of the exercise, others called on the EC to extend the registration days to enable them get registered
