We’re not scheming to remove Charlotte Osei – NPP

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rejected accusations the party is scheming to remove the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei for their political advantage.

President Akufo-Addo On Wednesday referred the petition demanding Madam Osei’s removal, to the Chief Justice.

The NDC had stated previously that the NPP was behind the petition but speaking to Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen refuted these claims , insisting the NPP “has got nothing to do with what is going on.”

He therefore called on Ghanaians to “dismiss that notion” and rather observe closely, the outcome of the development.

“A petition has been sent to the President and forwarded to the Chief Justice, period. Let’s end it there and watch with eagle eyes the unfolding drama.Why should people be drawing conclusions. The petition has been referred to the President. Constitutionally, that is the proper tenure. Constitutionally, the President has handed it over to the Chief Justice. Constitutionally, the Chief Justice will consider whether a prima facie case has been made. Why are we treading on dangerous grounds? Put NPP out of this internal brouhaha out of this issue. For goodness sake, those who perhaps might have benefited from these fraudulent activities are making the ugly noise. They should leave us in peace,” Obiri Boahen added.
