The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has commenced investigations into the misapplication of staff endowment funds at the Electoral Commission (EC).

Consequently, the Deputy Chairperson in Charge of Corporate Services, Georgina Opoku Amankwah, has been asked to proceed on leave.
 
Also asked to proceed on leave is the Chief Accountant, Mr Kwaku Owusu Agyei-Larbi.

EOCO in a letter dated, July 4, 2017 addressed to the EC Chairperson, Mrs Charlotte Osei demanded that the two be made to proceed on leave to pave way for investigations into “the loss of about GH¢480,000 from the Endowment Fund at the Electoral Commission.”

The letter said the two were key persons to assist with the investigations.

The three-paragraph letter was signed by ACP Mr. K.K. Amoah (retired), acting Executive Director of EOCO.

There has been an uneasy calm at the commission since last year over the staff endowment fund.

Some staff who have retired did not receive their payments promptly whilst others said they received something lesser than what they were entitled to.

There were some explanations that the funds had been invested and that it had to mature before payments could be made. 

The agitations from some staff therefore triggered the EOCO investigations, Graphic Online gathers.
