DgzUbcHWkAU42Nd

Charlotte Osei has officially reacted subtly to the news of her being fired by the President as EC boss after a committee set up to investigate her and her deputies recommended that they should be sacked. It’s a known fact that the NPP never like Charlotte Osei right from when she was chosen as the EC boss and even before winning power, they made us aware they hated her with passion for obvious reasons.

Charlotte Osei in a press release has said that she would at the right time address the President’s decision to sack her as she’s mourning the death of Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur just like every Ghanaian. According to her, she admired him and had deep respect for him.

Her full statement which she posted on her Instagram account accompanied with a picture of her smiling and looking beautiful read:

PRESS RELEASE [29th June, 2018]

I have been truly overwhelmed by the hundreds of calls, prayers and messages from all over the country and the international community, expressing shock and disappointment at the recommendation by the Committee (set up by the Chief Justice) to the President of the Republic, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remove me from office as the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission. I wish to acknowledge all the concerns and to express my deep appreciation to all of you for the show of support.

With the heartbreaking news of the sudden demise of our former Vice-President, H.E. Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, I will at this time, withhold my response to the President’s decision, while we commiserate with his family and pray for the peaceful repose of his soul.

At this sad time as a country, we are unified in our grief, respect and appreciation for this great man of our land and someone I had deep respect and admiration for.

Despite all the attacks, the character assassinations, the falsehoods, the curses, and the relentless plots and threats against my family and I over the past three years of my service as the Chair of the Electoral Commission, I chose to remain silent and focused on delivering on my constitutional mandate to the best of my ability.
Indeed, the records show that I presided over the 2015 district assembly election and the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections to the best of my ability. I prefer to leave the standard and quality of those elections for Ghanaians, history, and posterity to judge.

I still consider it a great honour and privilege to have been given the opportunity to serve my nation at very high levels during my period in public service.

I still hold the view and belief that our country deserves an Electoral Commission that is truly independent, unbiased, free, fair and firm, and can fight-off all attempts to politically capture, manipulate, influence and control it. This was always my cardinal objective and my approach to my work.

In due time there will be ample opportunity to fully address these matters once and for all.
Thank you.
God bless us all.
