Voter registration exercise: 17 applicants in Pusiga used fake Ghana Cards, says EC

According to the Electoral Commission (EC), a registration officer (name withheld) was arrested and has since been granted a police enquiry bail

The Electoral Commission (EC) says 17 applicants in the ongoing voter registration exercise in Pusiga in the Upper East Region used fake Ghana Cards to register.

According to the EC, during the voter registration exercise on 13 May 2024, a data entry clerk observed suspicious Ghana Card numbers on 17 registration forms. The data entry clerk notified the district electoral officer.

In a statement on Monday (20 May), the EC said upon investigation, it was revealed that Ghana Card numbers were fake.

“It was further discovered that the registration officer was complicit because he did not physically inspect the Ghana Card of individual applicants but rather accepted the fake numbers from party agents who had accompanied the 17 applicants,” the statement said.

“The registration officer was dismissed. A report was made to the police and he was arrested. He has since been granted a police enquiry bail while the police continue with their investigations,” the statement added.
