With barely six days to the end of the ongoing biometric registration exercise, the Member of Parliament for Upper Manya, Stephen Amoanor Kwao says he has not taken his guard off monitoring of the exercise.

According to him, even as the forty day exercise draws to a close he continues to supervise the exercise with the same zeal that he did in the initial stages of the exercise.

Parliament over a month ago rose to enable Parliamentarians visit their constituencies to ensure that they educate their constituents on the need for them to register to qualify them vote in the upcoming December election which is expected to be keenly contested.

As the long queues that characterized the first and second phases of the registration exercise is absent during the current fourth phase, some of the MPs have relaxed their monitoring activities.

However speaking to ghanamps.gov.gh, the MP for Upper Manya, Stephen Amoanor Kwao states that though the tempo of the registration has gone down considerably, he is not taking any chances but effectively monitoring the process in his constituency to ensure that no electoral laws are violated.

He described the exercise in his area as hugely successful so far as unlike other parts of the country where violence and other unruly conduct were recorded, his place has been generally peaceful.
