The deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has described the logo of the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) designed under the administration of Mrs. Charlotte Osei as being inspired by a secret society.
According to the deputy scribe of the ruling party, the EC logo designed under Osei could be found in the sixth and seventh books of Moses.
Mynewsgh.com reported that Boahen claimed the books were believed to have some cultic power and thus wondered why she decided to use it to depict elections of Ghana in the first place.
The NPP executive's comment came a day after the Electoral Commission of Ghana in a statement, announced that it had reversed to use the original logo of the commission rather than what was designed under Osei.
Boahen is reported to have been speaking with a radio station in Kumasi when he made the controversial comments.
He is quoted as saying: “when they changed the logo, people raised a lot of comments and sentiments. Some even went to the extent that even the logo was like a symbol of a secret cult. But when I also read and saw the logo ……”
“Look have you had the opportunity to read or have a look at the Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses? You just look carefully at the logo."
Charlotte Osei was replaced by President Akufo-Addo from her position as EC boss. Jean Mensa, formerly of the Institute of Economic Affairs, now presides over the election body.
