We were clear: EC must remove NHIS card holders – Supreme Court judge
A member of the panel of Supreme Court Judges who ordered the Electoral Commission to purge the voters' register of persons who used the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) cards as a form of identification for their registration has said the court was clear in its ruling.
Speaking to some journalists on Thursday, Justice Jones Dotse stated that “…we [Supreme Court] said the use of the NHIS cards is therefore unconstitutional and it should take the opportunity to clean the register of those undesirable persons.”
He noted that because “we also do not want to disenfranchise anybody so the Supreme Court went on to say that anybody who will be affected by that exercise should be given the opportunity to register according to the law and the constitution, period.”
