The Minority in Parliament wants a thorough investigation into the Electoral Commission(EC)'s seven missing biometric devices with immediate effect.

They claimed the biometric devices' sudden disappearance might be a plot to rig the 2024 general election.

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

"I am concerned and worried because the devices in the wrong hands can compromise future elections that Ghana will hold.

“Who knows whether they are in the hands of a political party? And who knows what that political party is doing with them? I am disturbed”, Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson told journalists in Parliament on Tuesday, March 19. 

However, EC in presser has clarified that none of its Biometric Verification Devices (BVD) are missing, contrary to claims made by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“We are fully ready for the election and we can confirm that five laptops have been stolen and these are laptops that do not contain any information about anyone. They do not contain information, so there are no risks.”  Dr Bossman Asare, deputy chair in Charge of Corporate Services at the EC said.
