The Electoral Commission (EC) has urged the general public to disregard misleading video circulating on social media purporting to show its officials printing new voters’ ID cards.
According to the EC, the video is false.
"We entreat the public to disregard this video as it is false."
A statement issued on Monday, September 21, 2020, by the EC further said “the cards in the video belong to persons with the duplicate voter ID numbers. They were authorized by the Commission, printed at the Headquarters and subsequently sent to the District Offices for lamination and distribution''.
"During the just ended Registration Exercise, few centres experienced the production of duplicate ID cards which resulted from Registration kits bearing the same codes.”
The EC called on the political parties to visit the affected District offices to monitor the distribution of the duplicate cards to the affected persons.
