Charlotte Osei - EC Boss

A former Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has confessed that he never understood the new logo which was introduced by the former Chairman of the Electoral Commission (EC), Charlotte Osei.

According to Allotey Jacobs, the logo looked more of a seal of an occult group.

“I must confess, that logo looked cultist, it’s true, I never understood it…,” Allotey said on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo on Wednesday.

His comment came a day after the EC in a statement announced it has reversed to use the original logo of the commission rather than what was designed under the leadership of Mr. Charlotte Osei who was sacked early this year.

A deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Lawyer Obiri Boahen has also claimed that Charlotte Osei was ordered by an occult group to change the logo to that of the sixth and seventh book of Moses.

“Look have you had the opportunity to read or have a look at the Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses? You just look carefully at the logo. Considering that design of the sixth and seventh book of Moses you could see that you can get the same logo there” he revealed.


Prior to the 2016 polls, the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) to change its logo which met disapproval of some media practitioners in the country.

Some media practitioners upon sighting the new logo for the first queried the EC as to why the change.

The controversial logo has colours such as red, green, white, yellow and blue.

The explanation by the then  Deputy Commissioner of the EC Georgina Opoku Amakwaah that the move is part of a re-branding exercise did not go down well with the participants of a workshop on the November polls.

She opined the new logo looks too foreign and charged the commission to revert to the old one.
