Former President John Mahama has expressed reservations about the recently formed EC’s Eminent Persons Advisory Council.
“The same voice of moral society that we count on when things are going bad are the same people they put on the Eminent Persons Advisory Council.
“How could you be part of the Electoral Commission advising it and at the same time when issues arise that are emotive from the decision of the Electoral Commission [you] come back and [still] be the ones to resolve the issues? I think that, it is better our Christan Council and eminent people sit aside and then when we have a problem, then we come to them,” Mahama said when members of the Christian council paid a courtesy call on him.
The 22-man committee chaired by former CHRAJ boss, Justice Emile Short, and assisted by Mrs. Gifty Affenyi Dadzie, a former President of the Ghana Journalists Association, include Arch Bishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, Arch Bishop Palmer Buckle, Dr. Eric Oduro Osae, Dr. Rose Mensah Kutin, Dr. Yaw Baah and Maulvi Mohammed Bin Sali as members.
Other members are Most Reverend Emmanuel Asante, Mr. Affail Monney, Nana Ato Dadzie, Mr. Sam Okudjeto, Mr. Tony Forson, Mrs. Freda Duplan, Nana Kobina Nketsia V and Rev. Dr. Cryril Fayose.
The rest are Rev. Dr. Opuni Frimpong, Rev. Ekua Ofori Boateng, Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, Rev. Dr. Paul Frimpong Manso, Rev. Paul Kwabena Boafo and Sheikh Nuhu Sharabutu.
