Sacked Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, has denied media reports she is keeping a government vehicle despite exiting office.
Mrs Osei in a letter dated August 7, 2018 and sighted by Myjoyonline.com Tuesday said she had “returned all vehicles and other assets belonging to the Commission”.
The letter was written to the Director of Administration at the Commission and requested a confirmation in writing about assets she has returned and any other to be returned.
A Daily Guide publication Tuesday claimed the former EC Boss was keeping a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 insisting it was a donation from former President John Mahama.
But sources at the Presidency have told Myjoyonline.com, the former EC Boss rather contacted the Presidency to come for a vehicle in her possession which was given her in 2015, following her appointment.
She made the effort at least two weeks ago and was told the Office of the President was sending a protocol officer to come for the vehicle, the source added.
The vehicle has since been returned.
