Due diligence not done on 21 Electoral Commission top managements- Okudzeto Ablakwa boldly reveals

Electoral commission despite receiving millions does not have asset register to capture its asstes, okudzeto Ablakwa says. 

NDC Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu constituency and Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has claimed that up to 21 Electoral Commission top management staff members, including directors, do not have personal records, police background check reports, declarations of assert and liabilities on their files.

He questioned why the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Adukwei-Mensa, expected Ghanaians to have confidence in her team and trust polls announced when some management escaped police background checks and asked why these unidentified 21 managers were permitted to breach article (9) of the commission bargaining agreement of 2018. 

Adding that, It is similarly disgraceful that, despite receiving billions of dollars from tax payers and contributors throughout the course of the year, there is no asset registry to identify and document its assets. That doesn't help its image and does not improve the public's confidence in them. 

This was shared on his Twitter account.
