Former Ghana High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Victor Smith has charged Electoral Commission chair, Jean Mensah to respond to the many questions surrounding the declaration of the 2020 polls results.
In a post on his Facebook wall, Ambassador Victor Smith he urged the EC boss to clear any doubts surrounding the results else she’ll be setting a bad example for unscrupulous public office holders to exploit at the expense of poor Ghana.
“Good day, Chief: you must have been aware that on Tuesday, Dec 8th 2020, EC chairperson, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa, was preparing to announce the outcome of the 2020 presidential elections at 5 PM at the International Conference Centre when indeed the IT department and elections directorate hadn’t received the official results from the regions and that some of your senior staff prevailed on her to exercise restraint? Question is which result did she have, and more importantly, where did that result come from? “
“Did any such thing happen?
“Why, madam chairperson?? Were you intending to make a declaration on Dec 8th based on figures from the NPP headquarters or figures from Jubilee house?
“Is it true that you sidelined most of your colleague commissioners and took most of your critical decisions with Mr Bossman Asare and others from outside the EC?
And is it also true that you hurriedly got jubilee house to terminate the contract of some of your commissioners because they tried to get you to do the right things, even in the midst of the election controversies?” he quizzed.
