Allegations against me are bogus – Charlotte Osei

Accra, July 24, GNA –
Mrs Charlotte Osei, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, has described
the allegations against her as bogus.

“My attention has
been drawn to a litany of phony allegations made against me by a certain
Maxwell Opoku Agyemang in a supposed ‘petition’ on behalf of unidentified
person(s), asking for my removal from office.”   

Mrs Osei said in a
statement copied to the Ghana News Agency that: 
“The contents of the said petition’ which has been widely
circulated on social media and published by the mainstream media, are
frivolous, baseless and are actuated by malice and ill will.

“These
allegations are in my view, the product of an overactive evil imagination, and
do not deserve any serious attention,” she stated.

Mrs Osei said: “I
wish to state categorically that all the defamatory allegations are outright
lies and without any merit whatsoever.

“I understand
from the media that the Presidency has received the alleged petition.

“I have my full
responses ready for each and every allegation made in the so-called petition.

“However, in
deference to the President of the Republic, for whom I have the highest levels
of respect, I would respectfully wait to be formally informed by the Presidency
before I make my responses public.

“I take the
opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation to the staff of the Electoral
Commission, political leaders from the various political parties, and members
of the general public for the overwhelming support shown to my family and I so
far.

“I am absolutely
certain that once again, history and the truth will vindicate the just.

“The political
motive hunting would not serve the greater purpose.

“The motiveless
malignity behind this petition are self-seeking and faceless individuals with
the sole motive of satisfying their purely personal vendetta against my person
and protecting illegal financial interests.

“Finally, the
Electoral Commission is an independent governance institution, non- partisan
and with full protections for its officials under the 1992 constitution of
Ghana.

“I would wish
that the political actors would respect the constitutional framework provided
for the Commission and support in upholding the supreme interest of the
Commission for the wider interest of our democracy,” she said.
