The chiefs and people of Axim in the Nzema East Municipality of the Western Region, have hailed the appointment of Mrs. Charlotte Osei, as the new chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), the body mandated by the Constitution to conduct elections in the country.
According to the citizenry of Axim, her appointment is indeed a call in the right direction, since it will serve as a source of inspiration for the youth, especially young girls in the area to aim for the best in all their various endeavours.
In a release issued by a group calling itself Network for Axim Development (NADEV) from the Nzema East Municipality of the Western Region and signed by its convener, Egya Adu, called on Mrs Osei, who hails from the area to remain focus and discharge her duties neutrally.
The group further commended the President, John Dramani Mahama, for the honour done the people by appointing one of their illustrious daughters and called on him to focus his attention on some developmental projects in the region.
The statement said, it came as a great joy and honour to the Chiefs and people of Axim and its environs, when the President, through his Chief of Staff, announced her appointment as the Electoral Commissioner on Thursday June 25, 2015.
“Indeed her appointment as the new chairperson has given us the hope that indeed our dear town and district are capable and endowed with such productive human resources.
We do recognise that Mrs Charlotte Osei is a well-known daughter from Axim from the Western Region and a fair minded Ghanaian who has distinguished herself in rendering selfless and dedicated services in both the public and private sectors of our dear nation” the statement said
The statement added, with her enormous and enviable records of successes chalked during her previous positions, “we have no doubt that she will excel by making a distinguished performance for mother Ghana.
We also believe that her new appointment will continue to serve as a source of inspiration for the youth in Axim to aim high and go in for the best in all endeavours”
Members of Network for Axim Development and the entire citizenry of Western Region are, therefore, delighted over the appointment of Mrs Charlotte Osei.
We congratulate you and challenge you to use your outstanding experience to serve the nation dispassionately by being neutral in your duties as the new chairperson to make Ghana a better and peaceful nation.
