Pressure has been mounted on lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong for passing a comment that suggests that the current Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs. Charlotte Osei got her job by giving sexual favours.

Civil society groups together with some political activist have called on the legislator to apologize Mrs. Charlotte Osei for making the demeaning comment.  

Latest to comment on the issue is the Superintendent Bishop of the Jesus Generation Ministries, Rt Reverend Dr Nana Anyani Boadum. He believes men overstep their boundary should they describe women who serving their nation as "slut".

In statement copied to Peacefmonline.com, the man of God stated that “We all have a right to question how professionally Mrs. Charlotte Osei handles the work assigned to her as an Electoral Commissioner, but let's stop attacking her as a person. Above all the sanctity of her marriage home must be respected.”

Statement Below:

We must be capable of presenting our arguments free from insults and name calling.  Constructive criticism in our national dialogue makes us better in building a cohesive society, but attacking women and for that matter branding married women in the discharge of their national duty as "slut" crosses the line of decency.

Any suggestion that Mrs. Charlotte Osei is not intellectually or academically capable of breaking the glass ceiling to reach the zenith of her carrier without being a slut is not only shameful but pedestrian.

A slut is woman who has many casual sexual partners. A slut is a woman of low standards of cleanliness.

We have had a lot of women serving this nation in various top capacities which is a plus to our democracy.

The indictment on the integrity of the Chair of the Electoral Commission is worrisome because it might suggest that most of these women did not reach the top on merit? 

Is it true that our women who have broken through the glass ceiling might have reached the top after selling sex to their dominant male counterparts?

We all have a right to question how professionally Mrs. Charlotte Osei handles the work assigned to her as an Electoral Commissioner, but let's stop attacking her as a person. Above all the sanctity of her marriage home must be respected.

The evolution of bastardising Ghanaian women started after the overthrow of Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia when the Supreme military concil (SMC 1) took over the reigns of government in the 1970's.  At that time the cliché was "fa wo to begye golf" to wit "trade sex for favours".

This shameful describtion of women feeds an epidemic among men who think women are not competent to reach the top of their chosen career unless they sell their womanhood for the position. 

This position against women lacks value; it’s ugly, pedestrian and should stop. Lacing our political discourse with insults nullifies whatever input we are making towards organising a credible election.
