Economic and Organised Crime Office probes SSNIT staff

Some staff of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) are being investigated by the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) over various acts of malfeasance, board chairman of the Trust has revealed.

“….As I stand here some employees and former employees of SSNIT are before EOCO,” said Dr Kwame Addo Kufuor at the signing of an audit agreement between the Trust and PricewaterhouseCoopers to review the financial records of the pension scheme in Accra on Tuesday, 22 August 2017.

He, however, failed to give further details on the said probe saying, “That one we are not going to go into it. But EOCO is investigating some members of the trust currently.”

On the agreement between the Trust and PricewaterhouseCoopers, he said the latter will conduct an independent baseline audit of the pension scheme.

The audit will cover financial, risk, ICT and Human resource management areas of the operations of the organization.

SSNIT is an important agency of the government of Ghana. The administration of the National Pension Scheme is its core mandate.
