- An NDC member has threatened there will be total chaos in Ghana if the NPP removes the EC boss from office
- Lawyer Amaliba warned that Ghana will burn if Civil Society organizations don't speak against the attempts by the NPP
A top member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), and a legal practitioner, Abraham Amaliba, has warned that Ghana will be plunged into chaos if Madam Charlotte Osei, the chairperson of Electoral Commission(EC) is removed from office.
According to lawyer Amaliba, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), is using internal structures to frustrate Madam Osei out of office.
The NDC lawyer, according to a Classfmonline.com report, warned that the situation is not healthy for Ghana’s peace and stability.
“These are the worrying signals. How can you drag somebody to your committee without giving the person a copy of the document and everybody is keeping quiet?
“What has the woman done? She has declared election results in your favour and so what again do they want from her that they are using the process to harass her?” the lawyer asked.
Commenting further on the issue, Amaliba said, “Where are the CDDs? Where are the Occupy Ghanas? If it were to be the NDC government all these people would be speaking by now. Where is Emile Short? Where is Professor Martey? This country will burn and we will see where all of us will be and so they should continue doing it.”
The EC chairperson, Mrs Osei is expected to answer for six allegations out of the 27 accusations leveled against her by her two deputies, Amadu Sulley (in charge of Operations), and Georgina Amankwa (in charge of Corporate Services).
This was after the EC boss appeared before the Chief Justice at the Supreme Court on Monday, December 11, after the President forwarded a petition by Forson Ampofoh and Godsway Dzado, both drivers at the EC office for her impeachment in relation to alleged corruption allegations.
The two EC deputies are also to answer for their alleged roles in the disappearance of some GHC 480,000 from the EC’s Endowment Fund.
Mrs Osei, who was present at the hearing with her lawyer, however explained that she has not been officially served with the petition.
She has therefore written to the presidency to provide her with a copy of the petition.
