The electoral commission is calling on all stakeholders to help it clean the voters register of registrants who registered with their NHIA cards.
The call follows a Supreme Court judgment on May 5 which saw the EC ordered to delete the names of some 56,000 NHIA registrants, which was presented to it by the Commission. Director of public relations at the EC, Eric Kofi Dzakpasu, has asked various stakeholders to assist the EC in its bid to clean the register.
“At our level, we are the custodians of the data of all persons who register in this country and we have gone through the data and we have come out with the number of persons who used the NHIA to register. What the Supreme Court said was that, if you know of any other person who registered with the NHIA, then you would have to come forward with it to the Electoral Commission and from that level we can move on,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the Commission has allayed fears that journalists across the country may not be able to vote prior to the election day, in what is known as special voting for security services and other selected groups.
