Founder of the All Peoples Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, says he finds it very difficult to understand why the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, is still at post looking at the various corrupt allegations levelled against her by some of her own workers.
According to Mr. Ayariga, he also finds it worrying why the leadership style of Charlotte Osei has brought so much chaos at the Commission, an issue he stressed, has dented the image of the electoral management body.
“I am so sad why Charlotte Osei is behaving that way. May be the position she is occupying makes her think that she is a God. She feels she is untouchable which is wrong,” he said.
Ayariga who was the 2016 flagbearer of the APC made this observation when interacting with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM on Thursday.
Continuing, he said those who want to sympathize with Charlotte Osei, must first compare her leadership style to that of her predecessor, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan.
“Under the leadership of Dr. Afari-Gyan, the country did not witness so much disdain, animosity and hatred among the Commissioners and some directors like what the public is witnessing today. Why is it that under Charlotte Osei we are witnessing this at the EC? Your staff are fighting you. Your deputies are fighting you, why?” he quizzed.
Hassan Ayariga believes that Charlotte Osei allowed her emotions to override the position that she is occupying, hence, the chaos at the EC.
