President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, has sacked the electoral commissioner, Charlotte Osei, together with her two deputies. The decision for the dismissal follows a recent allegation of corruption filed against Charlotte Osei at the Supreme Court.
There are claims that the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo handed to Charlotte Osei the dismissal letter after meeting her secretly at the Presidency.
“The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has, on Thursday, 28th June, 2018, removed from office the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Charlotte Osei, and her two deputies, Mr. Amadu Sulley and Ms. Georgina Opoku Amankwah, with immediate effect,” a statement signed by the information minister, Mustapha Hamid, revealed.
Citing a strong case for the removal of Charlotte Osei and her two deputies – Amadu Sulley and Georgina Opoku Amankwah with immediate effect, the presidency stated that a committee set up by the Chief Justice, Justice Sophia Akuffo, “recommended their removal from office’ on the basis of “misbehavior and incompetence”.
To this effect, the president has ordered all electoral commissioners to hand over their schedules to the director for human resource and general services of the electoral commission.
