Takoradi, Nov.12, GNA - The Western Regional branch of the Nana Addo for President 2012 (NOFP) has claimed that some people are clandestinely replicating Biometric Voter ID Cards of unsuspecting people.

Mr Sampson Nimako Darko, Regional Coordinator of NOFP, who said this at a press conference at Takoradi, displayed a photocopy of such Voter's ID Cards produced at Darkokrom, a suburb near Takoradi.

Mr Darko said this could not have happened if the Electoral Commission (EC), which is the trustee of the country's Bio Data, had not collaborated with the miscreants involved adding that the incidence has been reported to the Western Regional Police Command.

He called on the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as well as the other opposition political parties to work together and ensure that the EC provides a detailed voter's register.

“This, we believe, is going to prevent the rigging of the 2012 General Elections”, he said.

Mr Darko urged the EC to live up to its constitutional mandate by educating and providing accurate information to the electorate and the political parties.
