The Deputy Chairperson in charge of Corporate Services at the Electoral Commission, Mrs Georgina Opoku Amankwaa has explained she will state her side on the allegations leveled against her when the opportunity is offered.

In a disclaimer dated Tuesday July 25, 2017, distancing herself from a purported press statement said to have come from her responding to allegations levelled against her by the chairperson of the EC, Mrs Charlotte Osei, and circulating on social media, Mrs Amankwaa said she has not issued any such press release.

“It is worth noting that I have desisted from engaging in any media encounter over the “brouhaha” at the Electoral Commission, notwithstanding the negative publications about me since May, this year. This decision is borne out of the sensitive nature of the Institution and my avowed aim to preserve the sanctity of the Commission”, she wrote.

Adding she said, “As a Lawyer and a senior public servant, I am mindful of what to say, when to say and where to say anything that affects my person and my work. I am expecting that an opportunity will be offered me to state my side of all the allegations leveled against me that are flying around, and when that opportunity is offered, the truth will definitely come out.

“I am in consultation with my Lawyers; MESSRS ASANTE-KROBEA, SEKYERE & ASSOCIATES and at the opportune time will respond appropriately to the said allegations.

I am by this disclaimer calling on all authors of such releases in my name, whether sympathizers or mischief makers to desist from using my name in any media war. And I also want to urge the general public to ignore the response allegedly coming from me.
