“Attacks on the EC is needless and an attempt to subject the EC to the direction of any person or authority is unconstitutional and totally misguided,” he said.

“Those opposing to the compilation of a new voters’ register, using the COVID-19 deaths and infections are in pursuit of their own self interests,” he stated.
