It may be a mere coincidence when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo last week during his encounter with some selected journalists in Accra hinted that his government will do a thorough research on alleged corrupt appointees of former President John Dramani Mahama before proceeding to court for any prosecution.
Today can report that it has not been easy for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) since some faceless staff of the Electoral Commission (EC) last week petitioned President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to impeach the Electoral Commissioner, Mrs. Charlotte Osei.
General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC) says he is still occupying his position and that no one can suspend him.
Chairperson for the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Charlotte Osei has said that Georgina Opoku Amankwah in her capacity as Deputy Chair of the commission evidently exhibited general incompetence severally.
Citing a number of occasions where her deputy exhibited ineffectiveness, she maintained that Ms. Amankwah “without authorization and notice to the Chairperson, approved 2015 financial statements of the commission, increased the amount for fuel coupons beyond budgeted levels and without prior knowledge of the Chairperson or the Commission”.
According to her, there is “ample evidence of poor knowledge of corporate governance, rules of public service financial management and general incompetence on the part of Ms. Georgina Amankwah.
The Electoral Commission Chair, Charlotte Osei’s responses to the 27-point petition from the concerned EC staff is inadequate proof that the issues are false and hence must be seriously probed, this is the stance of Presidential Staffer Ibrahim Adjei.
The Acting Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Freddie Blay has assured that the NPP government would bring prosperity and development to Ghanaians.
