Is EC Wrong On This, As They Make U-Turn On The Ghana Card Being The Only Way To Vote?

The Electoral Commission (EC) has assured Ghanaians that it has no intention to use the Ghana Card as a source of identification for the 2024 general elections.

According to the Deputy Chairman of the EC, Dr. Eric Bossman Asare, the Ghana card will only be used to register for a voter's ID card.

“We are not going to use the Ghana Card for voting. No, we are not going to use it for voting. The Ghana Card is only for registration as a new voter and when you register, we will issue you with our voter’s card.

Let’s encourage our children from 16 years to go for their Ghana Card so that by 2024 when that child is 18 before 60 days to the elections, he or she can walk to our district office or constituency and register for his or her voter’s ID”, he indicated.

The Electoral Commission should come again on this matter clearly because it states that Ghana Card is the main source of documentation for continued registration. 

It might be a double standard comment "It won't be used as a voting card however it must be used to register then a voter ID will be issued." This means without the Ghana card to register, a person can't register as a legible voter. Aren't we heading towards disenfranchising possible eligible voters who are Ghanaians with the sound minds?

So what is this business about we are not going to use Ghana for election 2024.

I strongly believe this is miscommunication coming from Mr. Bossman Asare, could it be another misconception in communication?
