I doubt Jean Mensa’s EC to deliver credible, free and fair elections – Rex Omar says
Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Omar born Rex Owusu Marfo has doubted the Electoral Commission (EC) led by Jean Mensa on her ability to deliver credible, free and fair elections come December 7, 2020.
“If I tell you that I have 100% confidence in the Electoral Commission now compared to the days of Afari Gyan or Charlotte Osei then I might be telling lies. There are so many things that are happening under this current EC that’s not making me get full assurances. If you look at the time that the voters register was done the time was so short but we’ve done it so now there is no need to cry over spilt milk”, he said on Kastle FM.
In an exclusive interview with Kastle FM’s Amansan Krakye on Kastle Drive in Cape Coast, Rex Omar was asked if he has absolute confidence in the EC to deliver remarkable results devoid of bias come 7th December.
He said “The best we can do now is how we can ensure that the election become free and fair so that there won’t be chaos to ensure we continue enjoying the peace we have. But what Ghanaians must do is that it took us several years to build our democracy, we don’t have to sit down to allow some people to usurp the sovereign will of the people of Ghana and change the outcome of the election, we must all not allow that to happen otherwise there will be chaos.
“We should follow the constitution and the Electoral Commissioner is well protected so no one can dictate to them what should be done so if they don’t do the needful and there is any chaos in the country, she should be blamed. Ghana is important than any individual so let’s go by the rules and when Ghanaians decide that we still want Akufo-Addo let’s allow him to continue”, he added on Kastle Drive.
Rex Omar reiterated that should the election become chaos because some people want to usurp the sovereign will of the people, then it will take the country 50 years back so we all need to jealously guard our democracy.
“If Ghanaians want Mahama to come back let’s give him the seat just like he left it when he lost the election in 2016. But to sit down and allow some people to manipulate the election and tie our hands behind us that would never happen in this country. Nobody should allow that to happen because it will take the country 50 years back so we should avoid that and everybody must speak against that”, he concluded.
