We have not cleared EC bosses - EOCO

The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has denied media publications that, it had cleared top officers of the Electoral Commission who are being investigated for alleged corruption.

In a brief statement, EOCO stated that no such thing had occurred adding that reports the EC Chairperson Mrs. Charlotte Osei is manipulating EOCO is a blatant falsehood.

Below is the full statement:

PRESS RELEASE

ECONOMIC AND ORGANISED CRIME OFFICE- EOCO

The attention of the authority at the EOCO has been drawn to the banner headline of the 23rd January 2018 Edition of the Daily Guide Newspaper that “EOCO Clears EC Top Officers”. We wish to emphatically and categorically state that no such clearance has been issued to any of the Officers of the Electoral Commission who are on leave.

Secondly, the attribution that “EC Chairperson is said to be manipulating EOCO” is blatant falsehood and needs to be condemned. The general public is invited to disregard the said publication. EOCO will issue a statement on this matter.
