NDC submits audited financial accounts to EC

By on

ndc_ec_accountsThe ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Wednesday submitted its audited financial accounts to the Electoral Commission (EC).

Mr Joseph Kwaku Asamoah, the EC’S Director of Finance confirmed receipt of the audited financial accounts spanning 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, in fulfilment of the EC’s demand for same from the all registered political parties.

The General secretary, Mr Johnson Asiedu NKetiah, accompanied by Ms. Vida Addae, Deputy National Treasurer of the NDC, presented the financial statements to the EC’s Director of finance in Accra.

In April the Commission issued a May 31 deadline for all parties to submit the account for scrutiny in keeping with the Political Parties Law, Act 574, or be visited with sanctions.

When the ultimatum expired, the NDC and the New Patriotic Party were said to be among parties that failed to meet the EC’s request.

However, speaking to Graphic Online on Thursday, the NDC’s Director of Elections, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo said far from defaulting the deadline, the party had spoken with the EC and explained why it could not readily produce the required document.

“We had been to the EC to discuss with them that the audited financial reports was to be signed by our General Secretary who was out of the country and promised to submit soon on his return which we have done,” he explained.

“What we submitted was the complete account fully audited and prepared by our auditors,” Ofosu Ampofo emphasized.

Mr. Peter Mac Manu, Campaign Manager of the NPP told Graphic Online over the phone that the party’s audited financial accounts was not ready yet and that it looked more likely to be ready next week.

The Progressive People’s Party (PPP), the Convention People’s Party (CPP), the National Democratic Party (NDP), the Democratic People’s Party (DPP), the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), the Independent People’s Party (IPP) and the United Front Party (UFP) were the parties to have beaten the deadline, while the All People’s Congress (APC), which was only recently registered fully as a political party, was not required to submit the audited accounts.
