Jean Mensa must account for botched December 17 Referendum-Odike
The founder of the United Front Party Akwasi Addai Odike, has asked the Electoral Commissioner Mrs. Jean Mensa to come and account for the botched referendum.
Mr. Odike says the cancellation of the December 17 referendum despite the campaigns and printing of ballot papers caused the nation money hence the need for the EC boss to account.
The businessman cum politician told Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that though, the cost of the botched referendum is yet to be known by him, he is of a strong opinion that Ghana lost millions of cedis as a result of the decision to cancel the process.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Sunday, December 1, 2019, called off the holding of the Referendum of 17th December 2019, citing the lack of a broad, national consensus amongst key stakeholders and the populace.
President Akufo-Addo following that decision instructed the Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hon. Hajia Alima Mahama, MP, who was spearheading the process, on behalf of the government, to abort the process, and see to the withdrawal of the bills for the amendment of the Constitution, both in respect of article 243(1) and Article 55(3).
