Chief Justice Committee Orders Amadu Sulley To Refund "Missing" GHC 320,822
Posted on: Sunday, July 01, 2018

The committee set up by the Chief Justice to investigate allegations of corruption against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), and her two deputies, has asked the Deputy Commissioner in charge of Operations, Mr Amadu Sulley to refund an amount of GH¢320,822 which was found to be lost to the EC under his watch.

The committee also recommended that the Chief Accountant, Mr Kwaku Owusu Agyei-Larbi, be made to pay to the commission the amount of GH¢360,000 which he claimed was still in his custody for safekeeping, failing which he be charged with the offence of stealing.

These were made known by the Minister of Information, Dr Mustapha Abdul Hamid at a press conference on Friday following the dismissal of the three by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

According to Dr Hamid, six allegations were made against Mrs Osei, four against Mr Sulley and four against Mrs Opoku-Amankwah.

Dr Abdul-Hamid said the allegations that were levelled against Mr Sulley included the fact that he treated political parties’ primaries as a private commercial project with funds paid directly into the personal accounts of key staff for functions to be performed for party primaries.

Committee report

Dr Abdul-Hamid said the committee recommended that Mr Sulley be removed from office as a Deputy Commissioner of the Electoral Commission (EC) on the grounds of established incompetency and misbehaviour.

“After witness statements from the Chairperson herself against Alhaji Sulley, the Director of Finance at the EC, Joseph Kwaku Asamoah, the Director of Elections of the NDC party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, among others, and the respondent, Amadu Sulley himself, the committee established that the “NDC paid over GH¢5 million in cash for its primaries to the EC and the NPP paid GH¢233,270 and GH¢276,600 for its presidential and parliamentary primaries respectively and that as the Deputy Commissioner in charge of Operations, Alhaji Sulley had the oversight responsibility over the Electoral Services Department and directly supervises the operations of the said department,” he said
