- According to him, she has spent about $40M to renovate her office
- The presidency has acknowledged receipt of a petition to remove the EC chairperson
The founder and leader of the All Peoples Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga has declared that he is ready to lead a demonstration with the sole intent of removing the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) from office.
He stated that the reason some of the staff at the EC want Charlotte Osei removed is because she is abusing her office.
He went ahead to say that it wasn’t a personal vendetta, but he finds it difficult to sit down and allow things to get out of hand.
Ayariga went on to say that the EC chair has two secretaries; one of them takes $1500 and the other takes $2500 a month as salary.
Aside that, she is reported to have spent GHc40m in the renovation of her office. These developments, he believed, are not right.
In recent times, some workers of the EC petitioned the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to cause to be investigated charges of abuse of office levelled against the EC chair.
The six – paged petition they presented cited provisions of Ghana’s constitution that, in their opinion, are enough grounds to cause her removal from office.
The presidency has, meanwhile acknowledged receipt of the petition.
