In a response to an allegation made to the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) by some concerned staff of the EC that she has brought disunity to the extent that she was not on speaking terms with her two deputies and other commission members, Mrs Osei said my two deputies [ Amadu Sulley and Georgina Opoku Amankwaa]are “grossly insubordinate and rude.”

Mrs. Osei is on speaking terms with everyone at the Commission, she said in a response submitted by her lawyers Sory@Law to EOCO, a copy of which has been seen by Graphic Online.

The petitioners who are asking EOCO to investigate Mrs Osei’s leadership at the EC have also sent another petition to the Office of the President, asking for impeachment proceedings to be initiated against her.

“The leadership of Mrs. Charlotte Osei has brought about an irreversible disunity among Commission Members to the extent that she is not on speaking terms with the deputies and other Commission members. There is total breakdown of administrative structures of the Commission,” the concerned staff of the EC wrote in their petition.

Responding however, Mrs Osei wrote: “The Deputy Chairpersons have chosen to be grossly insubordinate and rude and there is ample documented evidence to support this.”

“Deputies take managerial decisions and implement same without the knowledge of the Chairperson; threaten staff that have direct dealings with the Chairperson; take their leave without the approval of the Chairperson and implement major administrative and operational decisions without the knowledge of the Chairperson.”

“It would be helpful for our fictitious petitioners to provide evidence to the contrary. There is only a breakdown of the structures for maladministration and illegal financial dealings and not the administrative structures of the Commission as claimed by the fictitious petitioners.”
