In view of that, they want the Accra High Court to order them to stop the registration exercise as soon as possible.

The plaintiffs drew the court’s attention to a statement issued a few days ago by Ghana Medical Association (GMA) condemning the continuous registration exercise whiles we are facing a global pandemic.

They also drew attention to the risk of being disenfranchised if the registration to issue Ghana cards continued since it lays some foundation for obtaining a voter’s ID card for the December 2020 general elections.
