President Nana Addo Dankwa Akofo-Addo on 9th June this year received a petition from the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), on the removal of Madam Jane Mensah for failing to declear her assets and liabilities, two years after her assumption of office as Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.
Work on the petition forwarded to the Chief Justice’s office has been completed and reports submitted on July 15, 2020 to the President for appropriate action.
“ASEPA then decided to file a search at the office of the Chief Justice to find if indeed the said petition had been referred to the CJ in accordance with Article 146”, he stated.
According to ASEPA, failure of the President to publish the report or recommendations of the Chief Justice’s work is a violation of public administration procedure, alleging that the President Nana Addo is doing this to protect Madam Jane Mensah.
In a release to the media intercepted by topnewsgh.com, ASEPA’s Ken Thompson called on the presidency to as soon as possible, publish the report of the Chief Justice as soon as possible.
“ASEPA is therefore demanding as petitioners, that the Presidency makes the report of the CJ public as soon as possible”.
