The National Women’s Organiser of the New Patriotic Party Otiko Afisa Djaba has called on the BNI to probe the relationship between President John Mahama and the chairperson of the Electoral Commission Charlotte Osei.
According to her, the wave of protests that have greeted allegations by Kennedy Agyepong that the EC boss exchanged her womanhood for the position is needless.
Addressing NPP supporters in Koforidua in the Eastern Region, the NPP Women’s leader said there could be some truth in the claims by the eccentric politician.
“The critical issue is that an allegation has been made against the President of Ghana. The allegation is that there is something between the President and Charlotte Osei, and that is what I expect the BNI and the national security to investigate. Because we are going into an election and if it is true that the EC boss has an affair with the President, then it is a big issue. And I think it is a legitimate question; we need the answer.
“In fact, it is worrying considering the fact that some NDC communicators have now become spokespersons for the EC…there is no smoke without fire. A referee who has an association with the President will automatically take a stance that will favour the president in this elections. This matter must not be swept under the carpet, let us investigate this matter,” she noted.
The comments by the Assin Central MP has been roundly condemned. Many civil society groups and women advocates have spoken against the misogynistic claim.
