The Electoral Commission of Ghana seems to have incurred the anger of some its temporary staff from the 206 General Elections, as it is yet pay them for their services rendered during the period.
Reportedly, none of the officers recruited for the elections nor the suppliers have been paid.
Speaking on 3FM on Tuesday, the Head of Communications at the EC, Eric Kofi Dzakpasu has said that arrangements have been made to pay all stakeholders involved.
Mr Dzakpasu admitted that there were outstanding payments to be made, and noted that the appropriate quarters had been notified, and said that "in due course, we will get the releases”.
He could however, not give the timelines.
According to Mr Dzakpasu, payments will be made at the District Offices of the Commission and as such all grievances should be directed there. Not disclosing the total amount of payment to be made, Mr Dzakpasu said when the money is ready all officials and stakeholders will be notified.
He admitted it was a 'big amount', and explained the difference as to what will go to officials and to suppliers will be drawn.
He further stated that the Commission is in constant touch with those they owe and they are already aware about the state of affairs regarding their payments.
