PROFESSIONAL bodies in the country, especially chartered accountants, have been urged to bring their expertise to bear on the conduct and collation of result of the 2016 general election.
They could do so by offering themselves as returning officers to ensure that votes were accurately collated and tallied to enhance the conduct of the election, the president of the institute of chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG), Professor Kwame Boasiako Omane-Antwi, who made the call, added.
Prof. Omane-Antwi was speaking at the 25th graduation and admission ceremony of the ICAG held in Accra last Sunday.ÂÂÂ Who can better understand issues of over-voting spoilt ballot papers, etc, better than a chartered accountants? KPMG proved this point at the last election petition hearing. This is our call and we have to stand up and be counted, ‘’ he stressed.
