The Electoral Commission (EC) has denied reports that printed and is still printing new voter ID cards at its offices.
The Commission’s response is in reaction to a video being circulated online which captures some officials of the Commission reportedly printing new voter ID.
The EC in a statement described the said report as “false” and “misleading”.
“During the just-ended Registration Exercise, few centers experienced the production of duplicate ID cards which resulted from registration kits bearing the same codes.
“As such the cards in the video belong to those persons with 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”, the EC clarified in the statement.
“The public is therefore advised to disregard the video”, the Commission further stated while entreating the public to visit the EC District Offices to monitor the distribution process.
