The Ghana Reinsurance Company Limited has explained that the Chairperson of Electoral Commission, Mrs Charlotte Osei, is no longer a director of the company.

She stopped being a director as of the end of December 2015, the Secretary of Ghana Re, Madam Jessica Allotey, said on Thursday afternoon.

The explanation followed a call by the political pressure group, Progressive Nationalist Forum, that Madam Osei should resign as EC chair since she was keeping a second job as a board member of the Ghana Reinsurance Company Limited.

“I can confirm to you that as at 7th January that is today’s date she is no longer a member of Ghana Reinsurance board,” the company secretary told Accra-based Asempa FM.

Asked when she resigned she said: “As at December 2015, I can tell you that as at the end of December she was not a director of Ghana Re.”

As to why Madam Osei was still being touted as a board member of Ghana Re on their website, Madam Allotey said they had just returned from the holidays and their IT Manager was updating the website.

Regarding to why she was also put in the company’s diaries for 2016 as a board member, she said they had to print the diaries way ahead of time because of the procurement processes and hence there was nothing they can do about that.

The Progressive Nationalist Forum has demanded that Charlotte Osei should resign as EC chair, claiming she was keeping a second job as a board member of Ghana Re, which it said was a breach of the constitution since the chairperson of the EC cannot hold a second public office.
