- To him, her responses to the allegations were very important
- He called for further investigations into the matter
Veteran journalist, and Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has stated that he sides with the embattled chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Charlotte Osei.
According to him, she has simply been transformed into a “target of scrutiny”, and as such there is the need for exhaustive investigations into the matter.
He further stated that she was right to respond to the allegations leveled against her, because that action helped set the records straight.
This, he believed, is because if she hadn’t taken that course of action, the public, which is currently criticizing her would have wondered the rationale behind her silence.
He added that the critics are the same people who have chosen to believe the claims leveled against her by staff of the Commission.
He also stated that though he has chosen to side with her, he isn’t the final arbiter, hence the need for investigations.
He concluded by saying that in the eyes of some members of the public, Charlotte Osei is guilty. This, he claimed, could be sensed from tone of their voice.
