The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr has refuted claims that Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa is related to First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.
“She is also not the niece of Rebecca Akufo-Addo,” he disclosed.
Mrs Mensa's nomination as the chairperson of the Electoral Commission has generated controversies and allegations.
While some are in support of her nomination, others are against it. Recent reports suggest that Mrs Mensa who is the Executive Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), is related to the first family of the land and therefore cannot be neutral especially during election 2020.
However, Kweku Baako who was contributing to a panel discussion on JOY FM newsfile programme, Saturday has debunked claims that Mrs Mensa is the sister-in-law of President Akufo-Addo.
“Jean Mensa, I have done some few [sic] checks, is not the sister-in-law of Akufo-Addo. She is also not the niece of Rebecca Akufo-Addo. Her mother was also not the niece of Rebecca Akufo-Addo’s father, full stop, that is what it is. These are the facts” he indicated.
