EACC ROOTS FOR ETHICS IN APPOINTMENT OF STATE OFFICERS
EACC wishes to notify all public bodies that the Constitutional and statutory provisions should be adhered to in the process of short listing and nominating of persons to be appointed to State Offices.
EACC has on certain occasions received numerous complaints that the processes of short listing of candidates who have applied for the positions advertised both in the County and National Government level may not have been fair or transparent. In discharge of its statutory mandate, EACC has always endeavored to undertake investigation in respect to all the complaints.
A major case in point is the recent process of short listing of Applicants for the position of Principal Secretaries where EACC received complaints that the short listing process was not carried out in a fair and transparent manner. Allegations were received by the EACC that qualified and competent applicants were not short listed for unknown reasons
