There is an uneasy calm in the Electoral Commission (EC) as some aggrieved workers have petitioned the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo for the removal of the Chairperson, Ms Charlotte Osei.
The workers have listed a litany of allegations against her and have therefore petitioned the President to compel the Chief Justice Sophia Akufo to start the process for her removal.
They have accused her of abuse of office, causing financial loss to the state and breaches of the country’s procurement law.
According to workers, the EC chair “single-handedly renegotiated the contract with the vendor without the involvement of the members of the Commission, not even the deputies. She then awarded the contract to the tune of $21,999,592 without going through tender contrary to the Public Procurement Act. The Chairperson then re-awarded these contracts without approval from the Commission”.
