Africa-Press – Ghana. In a bold move amidst escalating tensions between the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana, the Director of Elections for the NDC, Dr. Omane Boamah, has announced the party’s decision to meticulously document the serial numbers of Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits.

This decision comes despite the EC’s steadfast refusal to release this information to the party.

Dr. Boamah minced no words in expressing the party’s suspicions, saying that the EC’s refusal only heightens our belief that something fishy is afoot.

Asserting the party’s right to access this information, Dr. Boamah emphasised, “We have instructed our personnel to meticulously record the serial numbers. The EC cannot justify withholding this vital data from us, especially considering they are funded by Ghanaian taxpayers.” he told Nana Yaa Brefo on Yen Nsempa, Onua FM cohosted by Isaac Ekow JB.

He raised poignant questions about the EC’s priorities, particularly regarding the recent theft of BVR kits and their serial numbers. “Why is the EC unconcerned about thieves possessing these crucial serial numbers yet doubts the integrity of a registered political entity like the NDC?” he queried during the interview on May 10, 2024.

Dr. Boamah’s remarks come in the wake of the EC’s recent statement refusing to disclose BVR kits’ serial numbers deployed for the ongoing voter registration to the NDC. Citing security concerns, the Commission stressed the pivotal role serial numbers play in device operations and activation code generation.

The EC reiterated that divulging this information to any third party poses a significant risk to the registration process’s security and integrity.

The EC’s stance, however, has only fueled the flames of distrust between the electoral body and opposition parties.

Dr. Boamah’s pointed remarks underscore the NDC’s resolve to safeguard electoral transparency and fairness, even in the face of institutional resistance.
