OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Electoral Commission Chairperson Jean Adukwei Mensa is currently one of the busiest people in Ghana.
This follows the petition filed by the NDC's John Mahama challenging the declaration she made concerning the 2020 elections.
Jean Mensa has been appearing at the Supreme Court every day since the court started hearing Mahama's petition.
It has turned out that Mrs Mensa's husband, Dr Charles Mensa, has been appearing in court to support her.
In the latest photos from the Supreme Court, Dr Mensa was spotted arriving in the company of his wife.
The photos sighted by YEN.com.gh had the EC Chairperson dressed stylishly in a black suit over a pair of trousers. Dr Mensa was also sharply dressed in a suit.
The two came off their Land Cruiser vehicle in the midst of security officials guarding the EC Chairperson.
For those who may not know, Jean Mensa's husband is the founder of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) where she worked as Executive Director before President Nana Akufo-Addo appointed her to chair the Electoral Commission.
A former Chief Executive Officer of Volta Aluminium Company Limited (VALCO) under the Kufuor administration, Dr Mensa is the Chairman of SABMiller (Accra Brewery and Voltic), FanMilk Limited, among other companies.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has affirmed its earlier ruling that Mrs Mensa cannot be compelled to give testimony in the case
The petitioner was seeking the court’s leave to reopen his case to subpoena the chairperson of the EC into the witness box.
For him, attempts to shield the EC chair from mounting the box for cross-examination would embolden public officials to misbehave knowing they will go scot-free.
