Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has revealed that a team commissioned by the party to go into Ghana’s voter register has identified 76,286 persons with same data in both Ghana and Togo’s voter register.
Dr. Bawumia speaking at a widely publicized press conference in Accra on Tuesday said the party’s team identified this suspected irregularity after comparing Ghana’s voters register to that of Togo.
These persons, he said, were mostly found in the Volta Region with Ketu south cited as one of the constituencies where the anomalies abound.
“The question therefore is how this scanned pictures got into the EC register…it is not a document we can rely on for free, fair, transparent elections…,” Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia said at the conference attended by various party big wigs including party flagbearer, Nana Akufo Addo, party chairman, Paul Afoko, General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong, former trades Minister, Alan Kyeremanteng and a host of others.
He further suggested that the EC should grant a period of two weeks for the registration to be carried out simultaneously across the country, because he could not comprehend how persons with same data could get into both Ghana and Togo voters register.
