Ghanaian opposition New Patriotic Party claims to uncovered 76,000 fake voters by running facial recognition technology on the country's voter list.The vice presidential candidate of the main opposition party, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, said his party's evidence was “damning” and that it should lead to a new voters' before the 2016 elections.”Our investigative team obtained the Togo voters' register which was publicly displayed prior to the 2015 Togolese elections. Using facial biometric recognition technology, the system has found 76,286 potential matches of the same people, with the same names and faces on the Ghanaian as well as Togolese voters registers; some 2000 of which we present in the power point presentation,” Dr Bawumia stressed at a news conference Tuesday.”I should note that so far, we have only completed less than 10% of the work on the Togolese register and we will begin work on comparing the Ivorian register with Ghana's shortly and follow that with the Burkina Faso register.However, the General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has said the calls for a new voter's list are motivated by “malice”.”The party could have simply followed the EC procedures to get their concerns addressed and the register cleaned but instead they are calling for a new register. ߪ “This appears like a political strategy devised to raise political tensions ahead of the 2016 elections.”
