The Electoral Commission has in a press release stated that it did not issue a voters ID card to an Asian male and that the said card is fake.
We didn’t issue the FAKE Voter ID CARD; the EC said in the press release.
The FAKE Voter ID CARD which surfaced on social media and generated heated debate bears ID number 2809012504. According to the EC, the card is a photoshopped copy which had the image of the Asian man superimposed on it.
The commission said all the new voters’ registration cards issued have a blue background. The EC further identified one Nana Kwaku Okai Brako as the original holder of the card in question.

It, therefore, called on all to disregard the news about the FAKE Voter ID CARD as it lacked substance and was false.
The commission has teamed up with the Ghana Police Service to investigate how the card belonging to Nana Kwaku Okai Brako ended up being photoshopped.
Such an act is illegal, and offenders would face the full arm of the law. Attempts to discredit the EC must be stopped and efforts at helping improve its work promoted.
