Gabby Otchere Darko has wondered why people keep chastising the government for providing heavy security around Electoral Commission chair, Madam Jean Mensah.
According to the Danquah Institute founder, the EC boss herself may not enjoy the security detail around her, however, she has to endure it after the excessive threats on her life.
“This woman, the returning officer for the presidential election, has had her life threatened multiple times from all manner of corners, her character insulted, her integrity denigrated and the threats to her life heightened to the highest dangerous point that any public servant should endure, for the security services to consider it appropriate to offer her the highest form of protection they could”.
“Her security at home, office and around her 24-7, is made up of a combination of soldiers and police”, he noted.
“I am not sure she enjoys the security attention”, the President’s cousin said, adding: “But she understands she has to endure it”.
“And, some of us have a problem with that?” he asked.
