The Electoral Commission of Ghana has debunked claims it is registration new voters few weeks after the expiration of the voter registration exercise.

The NDC at a press conference on September 21, 2020, said the EC was engaged in a deliberate election-rigging plot and they are still registering people even though the registration exercise has ended.

NDC's Director of Elections Elvis Afriyie Ankrah at the NDC presser said: "Our observation shows widespread anomalies at various exhibition centres across the country. This has already given as course to believe that the anomalies and distortion in the register may be deliberate. EC officials were caught on video late at night printing and laminating an unspecified number of voter ID cards."

The NDC's comment come in the wake of a circulating video showing some alleged EC officials printing and laminating Voter Identification cards.

According to the Commission, a video circulating on social media purporting to be officials of the Commission printing voter ID cards is untrue and should be ignored.

“We entreat the public to disregard this video as it is false,” the EC said in a statement. 

Explaining the issue to the public, the election management body of the Electoral Commission indicated : “During the just-ended registration exercise, a few centres experienced the production of duplicate ID cards, which resulted from registration kits bearing the same codes”.

“This led to the printing of voter ID cards with similar numbers for different persons.”

The Commission said it is, therefore, replacing the duplicate cards for the affected persons, as such the cards in the video belong to those persons with duplicate voter ID numbers. 

“They were authorised by the Commission, printed at the headquarters and subsequently sent to the district offices for lamination and distribution,” the statement said.
