There was apprehension when six hours after he was supposed to have resumed duty at the Ayakoromo Ward 7, the Retuning Officer attached to the ward in the Local Government Council elections slated to hold today has not shown up.

Speaking with GbaramatuVoice,  the presiding officer stated that the returning officer was supposed to have accompanied him to the ward, but that he did not show up at the appointed time.

Voters were still waiting for the returning officer as at press time.
