After relieving Charlotte Osei of her duties at the Electoral Commission, President Akufo-Addo has publicly acknowledged the charming beauty she possesses as a woman.
Explaining why he had to painfully remove the legal practitioner from office as the chairperson of the electoral body in faraway Mauritania, President Akufo-Addo had some kind words for Charlotte Osei that every woman would want to hear.
“We can’t look at somebody and say because of your beauty the law does not apply to you; that is not how the law works,” the president humbly submitted.
The president is not the first or only politician to have recognized Charlotte Osei’s striking beauty as tongues wagged over her prettiness when she was first named as the EC chair in 2015 by former president John Mahama.
President Akufo-Addo further explained that “I don’t have the power to say I disagree with the Committee; the law does not give me the power to investigate on my own to say I disagree with the committee.
“The law says whatever recommendation the committee will present, I as the President, ought to obey and implement. That is why I removed madam Charlotte Osei and her two deputies from Office.
“The law is applicable to everyone in Ghana including me. If you do anything against the law, the law ought to be applied. It is painful, but that’s what has happened.
“We should all understand that it is not because of hatred or because we just wanted ways to remove her from office.
“I urge Ghanaians to let understanding prevail in this matter so we look for new people who will come and work without any squabbles between them”.
Mrs. Osei and two of her deputies, Amadu Sulley and Georgina Opoku Amankwa, were on Thursday, June 28 removed from office as Commissioners of the Electoral Commission (EC) by Nana Akufo-Addo on grounds of stated “misbehaviour and incompetence”.
Their removal rides on the back of recommendations from a committee set up by the Chief Justice to investigate the three on allegations brought against them by some staff of the Commission in July 2017.
