Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Dr. Afari Gyan Has Brought Embarrassment Upon His Dignity For Not Knowing Over-Voting - Charles Owusu

A member of the communication team of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Charles Owusu in his submission on Okay FM has said that the Chief Returning Officer’s inability to define over-voting when it is clear on the pink sheet has undermined his integrity and dignity as an electoral commissioner who has many years of experience in elections, not only in Ghana but other African countries.

According to him, the EC wanted to sneak in some documents to tender in as evidence after they (the EC) have reset the biometric machine to get the figures they were looking for; but thanks to the judges, the PPP communicator said that the court did well to deny the new evidence because it acceptance would have rubbished the petitioners evidence.

With the evidence in place which is so glaring for Ghanaians to see, he said that nothing can change the true verdict of the case because he believes so much in the judges as their judgement will be based on the evidence before them.

He added that Dr. Afari Gyan should relate his evidence to the pink sheet of the petitioners and not his experience over the years which Ghanaians are aware of; stressing that he should be able to deflate the claims of the petitioners as to whether their case is legitimate or not.

He however reminded that during the IPAC meeting the only consultation with the Commissioner will be when there is failure of the biometric machines including the backups; adding that the option was to conduct the election the following day.

“Clearly he has embarrassed himself in court about his profession despite his experience in elections and also being a consultant in many countries,” he chided.

He therefore pleaded with Dr. Afari Gyan to save the image he has carved for himself over years in elections; adding that he should retire with dignity so that an institution can be built in honor of him for championing the course of democracy in the country just as it has been done for Kofi Annan.

He urged the members of Dr. Afari Gyan’s family to advise him save the success he achieved in the past because he might lose his dignity following the trend of the court case; in that he is exposing his lies in his witness in chief which will not auger well for his integrity and dignity.
