Charlotte Osei is not in firm control of her job – Former EC boss

A former Chief Director of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Kwame Damoah Agyemang, says the actions and inactions of the Chairperson of the electoral body, Charlotte Osei, clearly demonstrates that she is not in firm control of her job.

Mr. Agyemang who has had 30 years experience with the EC believes that some hidden hands somewhere are manipulating the former National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE).

“From the look of things, I don’t think she (Charlotte Osei) is in firm control. Look at the recent public forum she set up which was chaired by Justice Crabbe to solicit for the views of people as far as the call for a new voters’ register was concerned”.

“Why is it that when the Committee was meeting the stakeholders, you the same Chairperson has to go there and state your case? You have already stated your position so what happens to the solicited views when they are presented to you? It clearly shows that her neutrality is missing”, he noted.

Mr. Agyemang made this observation in an interaction with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.FM, Monday.

Commenting further, he said the best the EC Chairperson could have done was to stay from the Committee.

According to him, all indications point to the fact that Madam Osei wants to replicate what she did at the Justice Crabbe Committee to that of the National Election Steering Committee she has set up.
