Dep. EC Chair erred in defying EOCO orders – Lawyer Garry Nimako


A private legal practitioner, Garry Nimako, has described the decision by the Deputy Commissioner of the Electoral Commission to defy the orders of EOCO and report to work as unlawful.

Officials of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) on Monday 15th January 2018 stormed the Electoral Commission (EC) to force the Deputy Commissioner of the Electoral Commission Georgina Opoku Amankwa out of her office.

Mrs. Amankwaa defied the order of interdiction by the EOCO and reported to work, Monday.

Georgina Opoku Amankwa is the subject of an investigation after several allegations of financial impropriety were made against her.

Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive, lawyer Garry Nimako stated that, Mrs. Amankwa was on interdiction and leave and that she had no right to report to her office until she is asked to do so.

“One thing we must understand is that, we are supposed to order our lives according to the constitutional regime. We live under a rule of law and not under a rule of mess”, he stressed.

According to Nimako, no person has the right to put the laws into her own hands. There are right channels to go through.
