Famous Sierra Leonean musician and philanthropist, Nasser Ayoub has called on the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) to verify their social media account.

“At a time like this, you (ECSL) should be the first to do so,” the musician said.

Ayoub, who himself operates a verified account, enquired also as to whether the Commission is being thrifty of spending the required $10 fee for a verified account.

This backlash by the musician comes at a time the Commission is very unpopular among locals due to the poor qualities of the voter’s ID cards.

A good number of Sierra Leoneans has openly criticised the country’s Electoral Commission after important information were missing in some of the cards. Locals also criticised the ECSL for the poor quality of photos on the cards.

The Communication Head at the Commission, Albert Massaquoi, in an interview on live TV acceded that there was an agreement between the printing company and the Commission for the pictures on the ID to be coloured.

However, most of the photos were printed in black and white.

The ID cards are supposed to be used by voters to vote in the country’s multi-tier election this June.

Political analysts have predicted that the incumbent Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) will face stiff competition from the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC).
