The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa has not tested positive for coronavirus, contrary to report by a media outlet, HardtruthGH, the Commission has said.
Urging the public to “disregard the lies” about his status, Mrs. Sylvia Annoh, Acting Director of Public Affairs of EC asserted, “The desires of her detractors will never succeed”.
A statement by Mrs. Annoh on Thursday said the Commission’s attention was drawn to the media report, calling the news “malicious”.
“The Commission wish to state categorically that this is an outright lie and a figment of the author’s warped imagination.
“The Commission wishes to state that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission is well and at post. She has not tested positive for the coronavirus.”
It therefore called on the general public to disregard the “lies and fabrications and treat the story with the contempt it deserves”.
