Fuming with anger, Gracias Jamal Konneh vowed that "We will not tolerate the actions of some of the EC officials conniving with the NPP to register minors in the region.
"We will discipline any minor that allows himself or herself to be brought to the registration centres for registration.
"We will not even allow them to register for us to challenge them. A minor is a minor, and you have no business going to the registration centre," he stressed.
Gracias Jamal Konneh warned that the registration centre is not 'Our Day' joint or Children's Park. Minors have no business going there.

"We are very peaceful and have always been peaceful. We will insist on the right thing to be done and make sure the laid down rules and regulations are observed.
"We come in peace, but we won't sit down to be cheated,' Gracias Jamal Konneh added
"The Regional Executive Committee wishes to thank all Constituency and Branch Executives and all party folks who, for the past two days, have been vigilant in policing the limited voters registration process," he concluded.
