7 EC biometric devices missing ahead of 2024 elections

The Minority in Parliament has reported that seven biometric devices belonging to the Electoral Commission (EC) are currently missing.

These devices were intended for voter registration and verification by the EC ahead of its limited registration exercise.

Addressing the press in Parliament on Tuesday, March 19, Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson emphasized the urgency of locating the missing devices, urging the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Police Service to act swiftly.

Dr. Ato Forson expressed concern about the individuals currently in possession of the devices and their motives. He warned that this situation could compromise the integrity of the upcoming elections.

“The Electoral Commission confirms that seven of the biometric devices are indeed missing. I urge the CID and the Ghana Police Service to immediately issue a statement giving us the details of their investigation so far.”

“I am concerned and worried because those devices in the hands of an unknown person can compromise the future elections that Ghana will have.”

“Who knows whether this is in the hands of a political party? And who knows what that political party is doing with it? I am disturbed.”
