The Deputy Chairman of the Electoral Commission (EC) in charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Bossman Asare has reacted to claims of non-payment of allowances to officials at the ongoing nationwide voter’s registration exercise.

This follows after some EC Supervisors and Deputy Supervisors complained bitterly over the unfair treatment meted out to them with regards to payment of their allowances.

According to them, for three months now some supervisors and their deputies have not been paid.

While complaining of underpayment too, they stated that “We are disadvantaged because we supervise everything, we recruited everyone and trained them before the exercise. We work every day. We use our cars, and motorbikes, buy fuel every week for monitoring, make calls every day and every evening to these operatives on the field for report etc.

“Moreover, Supervisors and their deputies work tirelessly after each day’s work to make sure that daily statistics are sent to the region for onward submission to headquarters. We at certain times have to leave the offices as late as 11 pm or even sleep over on some occasions, not to talk of phone calls. We visit registration centres with our own bikes and cars.”

Reacting to this in an interview with ABC News, Dr. Bossman Asare said all EC officials including the Supervisors and their Deputies have been paid.

According to him, it is an isolated case and their grievances will be sent to the appropriate office for redress.
