Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has lampooned former Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, saying “she was not professional in the discharge of her duties”.
According to the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Mrs Osei was guilty of gross naivety in the way and manner she treated her two deputies.
Charlotte Osei and her two deputies, Amadu Sulley and Mrs Georgina Opoku Amankwaa were recently sacked by President Akufo-Addo for stated misbehavior and incompetence.
On Monday 23rd July 2018, the president named the Executive Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), Jean Mensa as the new Chair to replace Mrs Osei.
Mr Samuel Tettey and Dr Eric Asare Bossman were also nominated as Deputy Chairpersons.
Ms Adwoa Asuama has also been named as a member of the Commission replacing Mrs Pauline Dadzawa who has proceeded on retirement.
Speaking to Class FM in Accra on the matter, Mr Bagbin said: “I thought the lady [Charlotte Osei] also erred as the leader when the petition against her led her to also turn to attack her deputies and throughout that kind of infighting, did not create a very conducive managerial environment for the commission to move on.
“So, the removal of the three of them on that basis, alone, would have been justified but as to the legalities, that one the court will determine that”.
