The suspended Chief Accountant of the Electoral Commission (EC) has assumed his duties as the Director of finance at the commission.
A Press statement issued by Joseph Kwaku Asamoah on Wednesday said: “On 6th July, 2018, EOCO directed the Human Resource Director to recall me from leave. I have accordingly resumed duty with immediate effect.”
According to the statement, the CJ committee investigation report absolved him of any wrongdoing, hence his resumption of duties.
“The said investigation has so far been concluded and report thereon was submitted to the Attorney General’s Office for advice. It is important to note that the content of the advice from the Attorney General’s Office made no mention of me neither as a suspect nor an accessory to the commission of the alleged misappropriation as earlier articulated by my solicitors.”
His recall follows a petition he forwarded to the President through his lawyers for his reinstatement in order to release a certain hidden money handed to him by the former Deputy EC Chairman, Amadu Sulley.
It will be recalled that the Chief Accountant was ordered by the Economic Organized Crime Office (EOCO) to proceed on leave when they commenced investigations into alleged corrupt practices at the Commission.
