The Electoral Commission of Ghana has spoken in a press release as it refutes claims by the NDC that the 2020 election data has already been destroyed ahead of a potential court battle.
The Electoral Commission of Ghana on Friday, 18 December 2020 released a press statement which comes shortly after NDC claimed that Biometric Verification Devices (BVDs) were deactivated by the EC which is in contravention to electoral laws.
