Charlotte Osei posts Maya Angelou poem in what seems to be aimed at her enemies

- Charlotte Osei along with two others were relieved of their position at the Electoral Commission

- The fallout from her sacking has generated a lot talk with some even taking government to court

An immediate former head of Ghana's Electoral Commission (EC), Ms Charlotte Osei, has taken to the social media platform Instagram to announce her resilience in the face of troubles.

In a move that many will construe in current popular phrase "throwing a shade", Ms Osei posted a poem noting how she can go through the worst. The poem itself is from late African-American poet Maya Angelou.

Titled, "Still I Rise", the poem was published in 1978 by Angelou as part of a collection of other poems. It has been cited by many people, from politicians to entertainers especially in fighting for human rights.

It is not far-fetched to understand Ms Osei's post in the context of her current situation regarding state affairs. Less than a month ago, the president of Ghana removed her and two others from their post at the EC.

According to the official government position, Ms Osei was found culpable of certain misconduct. For instance, it was cited that she unilaterally award contracts instead of consulting with the six other members of the commission.

Many have voiced serious concerns over her sacking. Ghana's biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) even had a demonstration until other happenings had it cancelled.

A veteran journalist and known friend of the president, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako has also taken the government to court over the matter.

As things stand, the government is looking to fill her vacant position as well as the other two. A few names have been making the rounds in the media.

Whatever the case, it does not look like Charlotte Osei is having sleepless nights about matters.
