The Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin, has rubbished❌ claims suggesting that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is on a deliberate mission to have the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission , Charlotte Osei removed from office.
In the wake of the establishment of a prima facie case against Mrs. Osei following allegations of 💰corruption and abuse of office leveled against her in 2⃣ separate petitions📝, NDC Member of Parliament for Tamale North Constituency, Suhuyini Alhassan, has stated that the governing NPP is on an agenda to dismiss the former.
Some had suggested that the President's decision to forward the petition to Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice, when he could have used his discretion, showed that he was on a deliberate mission to get Mrs. Osei removed.
Mr. Arhin in a sharp 😠rebuttal pooh-poohed these claims, saying the “President had no discretion to exercise” in relation to this petition.
Citing more examples to support his claim, Mr. Arhin sought to find out whether former President John Dramani Mahama exercised his discretion when a petition was filed against the former CHRAJ Commissioner, saying “when a petition was sent to President Mahama with respect to Lauretta Lamptey, did the President have any discretion to exercise? Didn’t he follow the laid down procedures as stipulated by the law.”
