Former Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) treasurer at the Kumasi Technical University, Jamil Boakye and the current TESCON communications director at Garden City University College, David Antwi Boasiako, are calling on the immediate resignation of the Electoral Commissioner and her two deputies.
They are calling on the three heads of the Electoral Commission to resign given an ultimatum of two weeks following their charges of corruption and working in the interest of particular political parties which shouldn’t be so.
Below is the full statement:
As concerned youth of this country, the future belongs to us and we cannot allow anyone to compromise that for us, especially the future of the Electoral Commission to be put in jeopardy.
Moreover, The Electoral Commission is an independent body and must not in anyway work in favour of any political party.
Our questions are;
1. How can an independent body led by Amadu Sulley a deputy commissioner create 200 ghost polling stations in favour of a political party? Is the EC supposed to practise Gerrymandering? A big no to that.
2. The alleged 6 million taken by Amadu Sulley from a political party was a motivation for him to work for which political party.
3. What influenced Charlotte Osei in attending a cabinet meeting with a government whose leader (President) was part of the Presidential aspirants of the just-ended 2016 general elections.
5. What was the motivation behind taking the V8 Land Cruiser with registration number WR 2291-15.
The future of the Electoral Commission cannot be entrusted in the hands of the current heads of the Commission due to the distrust created in Ghanaians which could have serious repercussions should there be any rigging of elections.
