The Electoral Commission (EC) has denied social media reports that fire has gutted its Data Center.
The Commission, however, confirmed a fire outbreak at its Regional Office in Sarpeiman near Accra in the early hours of Friday, 14th August, 2020.
The fire, according to the EC, struck the storage facility of the Sarpeiman Office and destroyed a number of used items including old forms, ballot boxes and referendum stationery.
It, however, assured that the fire did not affect its Main Administration Block and indicated that personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) were able to bring the fire under control.
The Commission entreated the general public to ignore the falsehood being peddled on social media that its Data Centre was destroyed by the fire and assured the Data Centre is safe and secure.
Meanwhile the EC is working closely with the Fire Service and the Security Agencies to unearth the cause of the fire.
