Mr Jackson therefore, encouraged Ghanaians to be proud of the maturity of their democracy, commending Charlotte Osei for her great service to her country.

The US Government in 2017 presented the Woman of Courage Award to embattled Chairperson of Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC), Charlotte Osei.
The US Embassy in Accra presented the award to Ms Osei at a time investigations into allegations of procurement breaches began.
Ms. Osei was accused by her two deputies at the EC of abusing her office and misapplying the Commission’s funds.
This was followed by a petition which has now led to her removal by President Akufo-Addo.
The US Ambassador to Ghana, Robert P. Jackson, in a speech to present the award on Tuesday August 22, 2017, described Charlotte Osei as “a woman who epitomizes courage.”
