The Electoral Commission (EC) has indicated that two of its officers who tampered with the presidential ballot papers in the Awutu Senya West and Bawku Central “have been arrested and are currently in police custody.”

The EC also revealed the names of the officers. They are; Mary Adatsi (DAJHS, Twimine B110104A, Awutu Senya West) and Ahmed Shafawu Alhaji Salam (Grinding Mill Polling Station, Bawku Central).

“In the case of Bawku Central, only one of such ballots was used. However the case of Awutu Senya West, none of the ballots were used,” the EC said in a statememt.

The EC further assured Ghanaians that the officers will be “prosecuted and dealt with by law.”

Background:

Videos and photos had been circulating of ballot papers that were given to voters without the photo and thumbprint spot of the NPP candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The ballot paper was torn after Nana Akufo-Addo’s box which means he was removed from the ballot paper and the NDC’s candidate John Mahama then became the first candidate on a ballot paper with 11 instead of 12 presidential candidates.
