The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is demanding an investigation into the missing Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits by the Electoral Commission to ensure trust ahead of the 2024 general elections.

Speaking during the party’s routine moment of truth series, General Secretary of the Party Fifii Kwetey questioned the posturing of the EC over the missing BVRs.

According to him, the NDC will not accept empty assurances from the Electoral Commission.

“How can we place our trust in an Electoral Commission that fails to safeguard the very equipment essential to fulfilling its mandate in a transparent and accountable manner? How can we stand by while the very mechanisms meant to guarantee fair play are stolen away, possibly skewing the electoral landscape in favor of those currently clutching the reins of power?” he quizzed.

Mr. Kwetey further stated the development is an outright assault on our rights as voters and on the democratic principles that forebears fought tirelessly to establish.

“The lackadaisical attitude and dismissive responses from the EC officials in the face of such a breach are unacceptable and insult the intelligence of every Ghanaian.

“We demand immediate and decisive action from the Electoral Commission. The time for excuses is over; the time for transparency, accountability, and rectification is now. Ghana is watching, and the world is watching.

“The integrity of our elections and the future of our democracy
hang in the balance. Let us be clear: we will accept nothing less than a full
restoration of total security for all EC logistical equipment for the upcoming
elections, a thorough investigation, and complete accountability. Anything
short of this is an affront to our nation’s future.”
