Electoral Commission has released a letter to debunk reports circulating on social media alleging that an EC official has been arrested in the Eastern Region.
There’s a video circulating on social media where an EC official was arrested in Somanya and was being interviewed by National Democratic Congress executives. In the video,the lady could be heard saying, she has suppressed the candidate of NDC votes by 3,000.
But the Electoral Commission is out with a press release claiming the news circulating is fake. Below is their press release;
“The attention of Electoral Commission has been drawn to social media reports alleging that an EC official has been arrested in Somanya within the Eastern Region in Ghana.
The fake news further goes to ahead to claim that the said EC Official was arrested for reducing the National Democratic Congress(NDC) Presidential Candidate’s votes by 3000.
We wish to state that this is FALSE. The public is therefore urged to disregard this fake news.
