The former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has said that his running mate Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang had her voters’ ID number duplicated when she went to check her registration details in the ongoing voters’ registration exhibition exercise.
According to him, her case is among numerous cases of duplication of card numbers that the NDC recorded at 14 centres of the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem constituency in the Central Region.
Mr.Mahama made this known when he addressed the country at the Party’s Headquarters in Accra Thursday.
He said “One of such cases involved my running mate Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang. She went to her centre to check her name, she sent somebody to check her name and they said she had to come herself because her number was duplicated, somebody else had the same number as her and so she had to come and collect the card and take it to the district office and to go and sort it out.
And so, she had to drive from Komenda to Elmina where the district office is and at Elmina, they took the old card from her and destroyed it and replaced it with a new one”.
The former President expressed concerns on the several other peoples whose ID card numbers would have been duplicated and because they do not have money will not be able to go to the EC office like his running mate did.
He used the opportunity to call on the Electoral Commission to work at ensuring these anomalies are dealt with before election 2020 indicating that the two days extension for the exhibition exercise is woefully inadequate.
