It could be recalled that a certain voter’s ID fraught with errors which was issued during the ongoing registration process has been making waves on social media for some time now with many saying the Electoral Commission is spending the taxpayer’s money on a wasteful venture.
The EC has taken note of the trolls and acted swiftly. A statement released by the Electoral commission signed by the Director of Public Affairs, Mrs. Sylvia Annoh revealed that the EC has corrected the error on the new card issued to the registrant.
According to the statement, the Electoral Commission traced the registration center which issued the said card bearing the name Abukari Osumanu to a polling station in Tamale. The Regional Director there has confirmed the occurrence but stated that it was a typing error.
The card has been retrieved with the error corrected and re-issued to the registrant.
