Ghana’s Electoral Commission has debunked rumours circulating in the media that its Chairperson Mrs. Jean Mensah was present at the just-ended National Delegates Conference of the New Patriotic Party in Kumasi on Sunday, December 19 2021.
The commission is calling on the citizenry to outrightly reject such claims. The Electoral Commission made the clarification in a press release on Monday, December 20 2021.
“Our attention has been drawn to a photograph making the rounds on social media purporting to be the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Jean Mensa, at the recently held NPP’s Delegates Conference in Kumasi. This comes to inform the public to disregard this false news item as the said photograph is not Mrs. Jean Mensa”, the statement said.
The Electoral Commission accused her detractors of devising such narratives on social media,
“We entreat the public to be mindful of the schemes of sections within our society whose sole mission is to try to tarnish the image and reputation of the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission”, the statement added.
