NDC reacts to dismissal of Charlotte Osei and two deputies

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it is shocked and sad that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has decided to terminate the appointment of the chairperson of the Electoral Commisison, Mrs Charlotte Osei and her two deputies, Amadu Sulley and Georgina Opoku Amankwaa.

At a press conference at the NDC headquarters at Adabraka in Accra Thursday night, Mr Kofi Adams, the national organizer said: “We are here this evening and many will be wondering why we will not wait till tomorrow before speaking to you [the press] and lovers of democracy, and we tell you, this is a matter that you cannot sleep over.”

“This is a matter that we need to let everybody know, people who love Ghana, and those who care about the progress of this country, people who care about the democracy we have all sacrificed and worked for.”

“We learned with shock, and of course, sadness the decision of President Akufo-Addo to terminate or dismiss the chairperson of the Electoral Commission and the two deputies this evening.”

“We learned with shock, and of course, sadness the decision of President Akufo-Addo to terminate or dismiss the chairperson of the Electoral Commission and the two deputies this evening.”

“As we speak today, many of us lovers of democracy do not know even these petitioners. We were told by the President that he was just a conveyor belt of petitions, and so any petition that comes before him, he will forward it but I will prove to you that, that is not the case. We are very much aware that there are other petitions, more than three months old petitions before His Excellency, against the Chief Justice of this country that has not also been forwarded like he did, if he claim he is a conveyor belt.”
