Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan has responded squarely to an enquiry by Justice Dotse seeking to know where the returning officer for the 2012 presidential elections has been hibernating.
Speaking in an off-air interview with host Kwame Nkrumah ‘Tikese’ on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ morning show, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan clearly told the host that it was unnecessary to mount pressure on his shoulders and force him to be seated in court when the place wasn’t a movie house.
He also noted that it wasn’t compulsory for him to show up in court since it was the Electoral Commission as an institution that has been sued by the petitioners and not Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan.
He therefore urged all to live him out of the media debate and allow him enjoy the serene air that was blowing around him.
Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan ended by claiming that the NPP’s petition to the Supreme Court has reached its preliminary stages and hadn’t gotten to the substantive stage where his presence would be needed.
