Professor Ransford Gyampo has alerted staff of the Electoral Commission (EC) to psyche for a strong work ethic when Mrs. Jean Mensah takes up office as the Chairperson of the Commission.
Mrs. Jean Mensah
He is a former fellow of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA). According to him, Jean Mensah competence is above board. She is also a workaholic who will not tolerate any lazy work at the offices of the election management body.
Prof. Gyampo further told, “She’s a very hard working person my warning to the EC staff those that she’s going to work with is that they should sit up. Because this woman could work from morning till dawn and she’s a goal-getter. She knows how to achieve her target and all that. And so if she’s going to go to the Electoral Commission with the same mentality then I think our electoral processes will see a lot of improvement”.
While answering about the perception that Jean Mensah is proud and looks down on people, Prof. Gyampo responded;
“I don’t think so and like said I wouldn’t have been able to work with her for fourteen years. But of course, even if there are personal issues people have with her I want to believe that, what happened to the former Chairperson of the EC will guide all the appointees”.
President Akufo-Addo on July 19 declared Mrs. Mensa as the chairperson-nominee of the EC. She is the Executive Director of the Institute for Economic Affairs (IEA).
Mrs. Mensa is to replace Charlotte Osei. Charlotte Osei sacked with her two deputies Amadu Sulley and Georgina Opoku Amankwah earlier by the President. He made the decision following recommendations by a committee set up by the Chief Justice to investigate a petition against them.
Mrs. Mensah, then, nominated with three others including Samuel Tettey, Dr. Eric Asare Bossman to fill the gap left behind by the sacked persons.
