Former Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports in the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Joseph Yamin has described President Akufo-Addo’s nomination of Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensa and 3 others to steer the affairs of the Electoral Commission as a disappointment.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo and the NPP preach virtue and practice vice as they condemned President John Mahama and the NDC for not engaging in broader consultation in the nomination of the former EC boss, Madam Charlotte Osei.

He said the NPP also failed to consult other political parties on the choice of Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa and her deputies.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Joseph Yamin without proof averred that the persons that the President has nominated are members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) who are bias towards the ruling government.

“Now Akufo-Addo with the same opportunity to appoint the EC boss went straight ahead to name people who are known in the political circles as NPP members to man the Electoral Commission; on what basis did Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP criticise the nomination of Charlotte Osei?”

“So Nana Akufo-Addo could not find anybody better in the NPP who in public does not show a bit political bias but with the same qualification to replace Charlotte Osei and the other deputies? Everybody knows the bias of the Political Science lecturer, Dr. Bossman as he can stay in his room to conduct a survey to declare NPP winner of an election,” he alleged.

However, he said President Akufo-Addo has shown he does not have the interest of Ghanaians at heart; “everything he is doing is in his own interest and not in the interest of Ghanaians”.

He added that the President can even appoint his wife, Rebecca Akufo-Addo to head the EC and the NDC will win the 2020 elections.

He maintained that winning an election is not about who is appointed to head the EC, but has to do with the work the NDC will do to convince Ghanaians.

“The work of the EC boss is to declare the winner in an election and she can only declare what is before her and we will work to the extent that Mrs. Jean Mensa will declare NDC winner as Madam Charlotte Osei did in 2016 elections,” he stated.
