The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has dropped some revelations about a scandal that has happened in the Office of the Electoral Commission. Ablakwa revealed that the Electoral Commission, having received billions of cedis, has failed in creating a register that will track all its properties in the country
"It is equally scandalous that despite receiving billions of taxpayer and donor funds over the years, the Commission doesn’t have an Asset Register to capture and record its extensive assets across the country such as landed properties, office premises, guest houses, residential accommodations, motor vehicles, office equipment, computers and accessories, furniture and fittings, etc.", he wrote.
Ablakwa explained that because of this, Ghanaians cannot trust her with their votes.
"You can’t keep proper records of what we buy for you but somehow you expect us to trust you to preserve the sanctity of our votes, both of which remain under your supervision."
Based on this revelation, it can be that some funds have been embezzled in the process.
