Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Sefwi-Wiawso on preparations ahead of the general elections, Mr Goodwin Tawiah Okley, the Regional Director of the Electoral Commission, said his outfit was ready for the task ahead after taking stock of about 98 per cent of election materials.

” We have received all the essential materials which have been distributed to all the constituencies for safe-keeping,” he said.

The Regional Director said the elections would be conducted in 1,149 polling stations, adding that the EC had trained election officials to conduct free and fair elections.
