“I’m putting it all back to how the EC has been set up and how it has been working over the years. We must find ways to improve the laws that ensure their appointment. But Before we go onto that, those people sitting there as commissioners, by right, we should all demand that they should go, they should be sacked, all the commissioners,” he stated.

According to a Starr FM report, the PPP leader opined that the rot at the institution is embarrassing to the nation.

Dr. Nduom was reacting to the scandal that has rocked the EC over some allegations of corruption and embezzlement, where Charlotte Osei was accused by some staff of being corrupt and misusing her position as chairperson.
