Commissioners must ceasefire – CDD – Starr Fm

A member of the governing board of the Center for Democratic Development (CDD) Prof. Baffour Agyemang-Duah has urged the warring parties at the Electoral Commission to exercise restraint.

“It is time the Commissioners ceasefire,” he stated Tuesday July 25, 2017 on Morning Starr with Francis Abban.

The country’s electoral management body has dominated headlines lately following a petition demanding for the removal of its chairperson Mrs Charlotte Osei for various alleged breaches. The petition alleged that Mrs. Osei among other things expended over GHS4 million on her residence.

But, in a blistering rebuttal to the allegations totaling 27, Mrs. Osei took her three deputies to the cleaners accusing them of gross insubordination, corruption and arrogance. This was after she labelled the allegations as frivolous and the product of an “overactive evil imagination” in an earlier tirade.

These allegations and counter allegations, according to Prof. Agyemang-Duah, blemish the integrity of all the three commissioners.

“If the officials of the Commission are creating these damaging allegations against each other then we have a problem,” he averred.

He thus called for a full-scale investigations into the uproar at the commission to establish the credibility of the allegations.

“A properly constituted body must go into this matter and investigate,” he told Francis Abban.
