Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, the lead pastor and founder of Action Chapel International has called on Ghanaians to stop vilifying the chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Charlotte Osei and rather offer her help.
The clergyman, was speaking with Bola Ray on the Accra-based radio station, Starr FM when he made the assertion.
Over the past few months after the 2016 General Elections, Charlotte Osei has come under a barrage of attacks over some of her activities as the lead of the body that has oversight over elections in Ghana.
She was most recently accused of incompetence and ineptitude by some staff of the EC and he two deputy commissioners.
This has resulted in an ongoing investigation by government into the EC and Charlotte Osei's actions.
However, there have been some Ghanaians who have insistently defended the EC chair and one of such people seems to be Archbishop Duncan-Williams.
In his interview, the preacherman revealed that he had known Madam Charlotte Osei since she was 18 years.
He described her as "knowledgeable and has a good heart and head".
"She has been in my church since the age of 18. I think a lot of people underestimate her, she is not that ignorant like people think she is", Duncan-Williams said of Charlotte Osei.
He continued that Ghanaians needed to offer help to Charlotte Osei instead.
The pastor also stated that Ghanaians are not good at "the way we treat women in this country, especially when they are in higher office of responsibility".
"We subject them to all kinds of opinions. The young grow and we need to develop young minds, both men and women for a better tomorrow,” he stated.
