Fake Ghana Card numbers used in registering 17 persons in Pusiga – EC

The Electoral Commission (EC) says fake Ghana Card numbers have been used to register some individuals in the ongoing voter registration process at the Pusiga District Registration Centre on May 13, 2024.

According to the election management body 17 persons were found to have used counterfeit Ghana Card numbers during the registration exercise conducted at the said center.

After uncovering the fake registration, the EC immediately dismissed the Registration Officer responsible for overseeing the process.

The officer was subsequently arrested by the police after a report was filed by the EC.

“Upon investigation, it was revealed that the 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 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 17 applicants were subsequently registered through the Guarantor System,” the EC said in a statement.
