The Electoral Commission (EC) has confirmed a fire outbreak at its Regional Office in Sarpeiman near Accra in the early hours of today, Friday, 14th August, 2020.
The fire gutted the storage facility of the Sarpeiman Office and destroyed a number of used items including old forms, ballot boxes and referendum stationery.
The fire did not affect the main administration block.
Personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service were able to quench the fire.
The Commission therefore entreats the general public to disregard the falsehood peddled on social media that its Data Centre was destroyed by the fire.
The Electoral Management body assures the public its Data Centre is safe and secure.
