“The verification devices that the Electoral Commission uses to register Ghanaians on the Electoral roll and it’s used to verify us before you vote seven of them are missing.

“The Electoral confirms that seven of the biometric devices are indeed missing. I urge the CID and the Ghana police service to immediately issue a statement giving us the details of their investigation so far.
