Below is the full statement:
ELECTION SECURITY EMERGENCY NUMBERS
The Accra Regional Election Security Taskforce has introduced three new emergency numbers in addition to existing ones to enable the public and the media to reach its information desk during the 7th December general elections.
The numbers are:
055 – 799 9911
055-799 99 22
050-710 23 69
This is part of security arrangements to ensure it does not lose sight of any vital information or acts of violence that have the tendency to mar the peaceful conduct of the elections.
The Regional Taskforce is hereby calling on the good people of Ghana to be vigilant and call the emergency lines on any situation that calls for swift Police intervention. It will, however, appeal to the public to desist from circulating speculations, fabrications and the false information especially on social media platforms and direct all information of police interest to its information desk.
The public is encouraged to make good use of the new numbers in addition to the existing ones (National Police number 191, MTN/Vodafone toll-free 18555, Police hotlines 0302-773 695, 0302-773 906,) and call the Police to report, verify or confirm any piece of information.
