2024 Polls: We Only Have Our Hopes In Jean Mensah; Bossman Asare Is NPP – Mahama



The 2020 flagbearer for the NDC, John Dramani Mahama has said the party has its hopes in Electoral Commission chair, Jean Mensah and not the Deputy Chairman, Bossman Asare who he believes belongs to the ruling NPP.

In his view, Dr Bossman Asare appears to have a problem with him [Mahama] and argues like they are rivals.

Speaking in an interview on Accra-based TV XYZ, on Monday, 8 November 2021 ahead of his Greater Accra Regional Thank You tour on Tuesday, 9 November 2021, Mr Mahama said the NDC has no confidence in Dr Bossman Asare.

He said: “Bossman behaves like an NPP person, his posturing, his body language, everything. The way he was arguing with me when he was reading their response was as if he was fighting his rival.

“The way he responded was as if he has a grudge with me and right from the start, he said the NDC was an existential threat to Ghana’s democracy and, so, he has declared his stance. So we have no hope in him, the person we have hope in is Jean Mensah because she is the chair of the commission and she bares ultimate responsibility and not Bossman Asare.”

According to Mr Mahama “we know he [Bossman Asare] is an NPP man, I know he’s an NPP man, we know his track record in University of Ghana before he became commissioner, he was an NPP patron so we don’t talk about him but Jean Mensah is the chair and she takes ultimate responsibility and so she must put her foot down and make sure that the right thing is done”.
