Member of the Communications team for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Charles Owusu has said that the Chairperson for the Electoral Commission [EC] Charlotte Osei will be relieved off her post should the laws of the state find her guilty in the on-going impeachment process.
“We will take Charlotte Osei off her post if she fits that category after the court ruling because we are not ready to deal with a lousy commission, the three EC officials involved in the counter allegations are nobody to dictate to the state,” he bitterly stated on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme.
“How can we have peace when the authorities who are to promote peace do not have peace among themselves and the office from which they operate?” Charles Owusu questioned.
Chairperson for the EC, Charlotte Osei, and her two deputies, Georgina Opoku-Amankwah, in charge of Corporate Services, and Amadu Sulley, in charge of Operations, are appearing before a five-member committee chaired by a Supreme Court Judge to answer questions relating to the counter allegations made against themselves.
Private Legal Practitioner and Member of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba, has declared that Ghana will burn if the Chair of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Charlotte Osei, is removed from office.
Speaking on agitations from members of the NDC to the issue, he said “why are members of the NDC crying for the bereaved? . . . I urge Ghanaians’ to keep their fingers crossed and watch our President who believes and works within the confines of the laws governing the state.”
However, he advised members of the New Patriotic Party [NPP] to be united because their disunity will affect the Presidency and the nation at large.
He pleaded with party executives to put up concrete plans and policies to keep the president stable to perform his assigned task.
