Film Director and Produce Leila Efua Djansi has hit back at the critics within the governing Newpatritic Party (NPP) over her comment in defense of CE boss Charlotte Osei.
Leila Djansi in an earlier facebook post alluded that Electoral Commission (EC) boss, Charlotte Osei is being hounded out of office simply because she is a woman.
‘’Poor Charlotte Osei.
Just because you’re a woman.
Just because you’re a beautiful married woman and they can’t accuse you of being a whore to temper their pride and insecurities.
Just because you’re a smart and firm woman.
Just because you’re a strong woman.
Stay strong Charlotte, because you’re a woman. It’s what we do.’’
Her comment which did not go well with some members of NPP, accused the ‘’Sinking sand’’ director of dong the bidding of the National Democratic Congress.
However in a sharp rebuttal, Leila Djansi reminded her NPP critics that she was heavily involved in campaigning for the NPP ahead of the 2016 elections and could not be doing the opposition’s bidding.
She further added that if Madam Osei is being accused of fraud at the EC, then the 2016 elections should also be annulled since it presupposes it is also shrouded in fraud.
‘’Proudly, I campaigned for the NPP. That I did that does not mean I will not acknowledge anything good NDC did. Charlotte was one.’’
So, when you impeach her, also question and nullify the elections. She is afterall, a fraud and lied about everything. When a lab or judge or court is found to be corrupt, all the cases they sent to prison are freed, judgements overturned.
Nullify everything Charlotte Osei did in her time as electoral commission chief.’’ She noted
