Dr. Quaicoe reiterated the Commission’s commitment to upholding justice and ensuring that those responsible for stealing state assets face appropriate consequences.

He clarified the circumstances surrounding the missing devices, stating, “What I can say on authority is that we lost one BVD in North Tongu and what happened was that we normally package these things in ballot boxes. You put your systems and you seal. In the course of transporting, we got there, they couldn’t transport the ballot boxes.”

“So we reported to the police. We have lost this and these are the suspects so investigate and let them go through the legal regime.

“Whatever has to be done should be done. They have been interdicted they are now going through the investigations. So, the police I am told that they will be arraigned before court soon”, Dr. Quaicoe’s stated in an interview on Joy FM.

The EC has asserted that only five laptops used for biometric verification registration are missing, refuting claims from the NDC that five biometric verification devices have been stolen.
