The Deputy Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Dr. Bossman Asare, has reassured the public that the missing Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) devices pose no threat to the integrity of the 2024 general elections.

In a recent interview on JoyNews monitored by, Dr. Asare explained that the missing BVR devices are ineffective on their own and that the Electoral Commission has already accounted for every single device they will use in the upcoming elections.

Dr Bossman Asare stated, “The laptops on their own are insignificant. They are just like the laptops you use at your workplace. We’ve accounted for every single device that we’re going to be using.

“So that means the ones we are using now, we still have some there. So are you saying the EC will come and tell the Ghanaian people that five laptops are missing and we want to use those laptops to register people? Who in the EC is going to do that?” he quizzed.

The Deputy Chairperson further emphasized that the Electoral Commission has robust measures in place to ensure the credibility and transparency of the electoral process. “We have accounted for every single device that will be used, and we are confident in our ability to deliver a free, fair, and credible election,” he stated.

The issue of the missing BVR devices has been a subject of public discourse, with concerns raised about the potential impact on the integrity of the electoral process. However, Dr. Asare’s assurances have provided some reassurance to the public, who are eager to see a peaceful and well-organized election in 2024.

The Electoral Commission has reiterated its commitment to upholding the highest standards of electoral integrity and has urged all stakeholders to work together to ensure a successful and transparent electoral process.
