According to the petitioners, “Mrs. Osei, without recourse to the commission, and without seeking approval of the commissioners, requested a new office building for the commission. Even though the commission was never given any proper land documents transferring ownership or use of the building to the commission, Mrs. Osei instructed the spending of almost GH¢154,000,000 of the commission’s money in the internal partitioning of the building alone,” adding “to date, the ownership of the building has not been ascertained and the commission cannot move into the building.”

They suggested to the Special Prosecutor that “it is a clear case of causing financial loss to the state.”

They further claimed the sacked EC Boss submitted GH¢1 million for the renovation of the official bungalow for the chairperson without recourse to the commission or appropriate staff of the commission.
