President Nana Akufo-Addo and former Electoral Commission Chairperson, Charlotte Osei, have met in public for the first time after she was relieved from her post in 2018.
Akufo-Addo and Mrs Osei met when a delegation from the family of the veteran journalist, Kweku Baako, paid a courtesy call on the president.
The visit was to thank President Akufo-Addo for supporting the family to lay their mother, Gloria Aba Addison, to rest.
Baako's mother passed away on March 6, 2021, and was laid to rest. Akufo-Addo, his vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and other leading members of the government attended the burial service, hence the show of appreciation from Baako's family.
Charlotte Osei happens to be Kweku Baako's cousin and formed part of the family delegation to the Jubilee House.
In photos sighted by YEN.com.gh, Mrs Osei was seen in a good mood when she met the president, and they even had a chat and laughter moment.
Apart from Charlotte Osei, Kweku Baako was accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Isha Baako, his sisters Judy Akosua Larbi Osei, and Sabina Chinibuah. Madam Faustina Nelson and Ade Coker, both family members were also part of the delegation.
The photos of Charlotte Osei and Akufo-Addo have stirred massive reactions. Many people have been wondering what might have caused such a friendly demeanour from Mrs Osei towards Akufo-Ado after he sacked her. Others, however, defended her.
