The Electoral Commission has issued a warning to individuals who’ll be guaranteeing for people to register for the new voters’ card.
According to the Commission, it is illegal for anyone to guarantee for more than ten persons, noting the act was an electoral offence which comes with consequences.
A statement signed by Sylvia Annoh, Acting Director of Public Affairs of the Commission disclosed that the guarantor system was capable of picking guarantors who guarantee for more than 10 applicants.
The EC noted that there was a viral video spreading false information about the registration system. They called on the public to disregard it.
It explained that the system in place was not based on Algorithm Mathematics as it was being alleged and neither does the system have a vault called Non-Verifiable Names.
“These terms are alien and completely unknown to the Electoral Commission’s systems and asked the public to overlook it.”
“We encourage the public to be circumspect and assist the EC to deliver a credible register by being vigilant and ensuring that fake news is not spread,” the statement noted.
