The founder of Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyinasare has advised the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Mrs. Jean Mensah to be firm and neutral in executing her duties in the upcoming elections.
To him, this year’s election special and demands she carries her neutrally because both presidential candidates, Nana Akufo-Addo and John Mahama want a second term in office.
“This is a very interesting election because we have a former president who has one term and we have an incumbent president who has also served one term, and they all want to have a second term. And so this is a very history-making election and I will encourage the EC to make her face like a flint and go for it and be neutral.” he said.
The Bishop also asked the EC Chair to emulate the examples of the past Chairpersons, Kwadwo Afari Gyan and Charlotte Osei.
The EC should take a cue from these people [Afari Gyan and Charlotte Osei] and do the best she can. She must leave a legacy of being a very neutral referee. You see at times people think that when women are in positions like that they can be made puppets or are puppets. She should prove that she is not a puppet,” he noted.
Bishop Charles Agyinasare speaking JoyNews’ Beyond The Lockdown added that the peace of the country surpasses all political parties hence the EC Chair should ensure the peace of the country is sustained in carrying out her duties.
