Ekiti Refutes Report Of Cloning Workers’ Voter Cards

Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti

The Ekiti state government has denied reports that it is collecting voter cards from workers in order to clone them ahead of the upcoming gubernatorial election.

The Commissioner for Information, Youths and Sports Development, Lanre Ogunsuyi, said the voter cards were collected from beneficiaries of loan as a means of identification.

He said, “It is not true that government is cloning workers’ voter cards. What we are doing is an empowerment for the workers which is optional because nobody is being compelled for it.

“The loan is optional and somebody can look at the conditions attached and such a person can opt out if he or she is not satisfied with the conditions.

“The reason why women are asked to bring their voter cards is that majority of them don’t have driving licence, national identity card or travel passport and their easy means of identification is voter card.

“Nobody should read any negative meaning to the good intention of the government to empower its citizens. No card is being cloned anywhere.”
