Charlotte Osei’s 28 responses bogus – Presidential Staffer

Presidential Staffer Ibrahim Adjei has dismissed as gobbledygook the 28 responses of Charlotte Osei, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission to a petition calling for her head.

Mrs. Osei has dominated the headlines recently following the petition demanding for her axing and accusing her of “single-handedly” dishing out contracts to the tune of $21,999,592 without recourse to the Public Procurement Act.

The petition, which the presidency acknowledged receipt of further alleged that Mrs. Osei among other things expended over GHS4 million on her residence.

But, in a blistering rebuttal to the allegations totaling 27, Mrs. Osei took her three deputies to the cleaners accusing them of gross insubordination, corruption and arrogance.

This was after she labelled the allegations as frivolous and the product of an “overactive evil imagination” in an earlier tirade.

They are; Deputy in Charge of Operations, Amadu Sulley, Corporate Services, Georgina Opoku Amankwaa and Finance and Administration, Dr. Joseph Kwaku Asamoah.

In his riposte, however, in an interview with Starr News Mr. Adjei insists nothing but a full-scale investigation is what is required to bring the matter to a finality.

According to him, the responses do not fully match the reality and Mrs. Osei is being disingenuous.

“I think the sugar coating responses that she has given is far off the mark…far from reality” iterated Mr. Adjei who is also a member of Let My Vote Count Alliance “because we know the kind of vitriol that she meted out to us.”
