|Audio Attachment:Prez Nana Addo EC boss|
His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has exalted the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Charlotte Osei for her stupendous supervision of last December’s general elections.
Even though Charlotte Osei was bombarded by some members of the then opposition NPP, her leadership in the lead-up to the December 2016 elections according Nana Addo was ‘exceptional’.
The President showered the praises of the EC head when delivering his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) in Parliament.
Article 67 of Ghana’s 1992 Constitution requires that: “The President shall, at the beginning of each session of Parliament and before the dissolution of Parliament, deliver to Parliament a message on the state of the nation.”
President Nana Addo however noted that – Ghana has been much-admired by the international world for ‘smooth’ and peaceful elections.
“Mr. Speaker, I use this occasion to commend the Electoral Commission and its chairperson, Mrs. Charlotte Osei for the conduct of our recent elections which has received domestic and international acclaimed,” he said.
Adding that – “In the coming years, I hope our electoral processes will become even more robust so the free and fair elections become automatic part of our democratic culture.”
