The integrity of Ghana’s Electoral Commission in the past few days has been a subject of discussion.
With a petition seeking to impeach its Chairperson, Charlotte Osei, over wrong doings, she has also named some of her Deputies for being corrupt and it’s extending to be a legal challenge.
Charlotte Osei in a response to reasons why some faceless top officials at the EC are demanding her exit has accused the Deputy Commissioner in charge of Operations, Amadu Sulley for being corrupt.
She wrote “The Deputy Chairperson Operations collected funds above GHS6m (Six million Ghana cedis) in cash from some political parties for the organisation of party primaries without recourse to the structures of the Commission and without the involvement of the finance department of the Commission. Political party primaries were treated as a private commercial project by the Deputy Chairperson Ops, with funds paid directly into the personal accounts of key staff for functions to be performed for party primaries”
Reacting to this, Amadu Sulley has sent a text message to Star Fm’s Ibrahim Alhassan telling him that he is preparing to take the E.C Boss to court over allegations.
According to StarrfmOnline, the text message reads “I want to assure you that it’s not true. I have all the documents and I am going for legal advice”.
