The opposition NDC engaged in scathing jeremiads against Jean Mensa and her deputies for reasons discerning minds have struggled to come to terms with even today.

They invented stories upon stories all in their efforts to tarnish the image of Jean Mensa and taint her professionalism with respect to her assigned job at the EC.

In cahoots with some CSOs, Jean Mensa was taken to the cleaners, accused of being in bed with the ruling New Patriotic Party to rig the 2020 elections in favour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

At every turn, Jean Mensa met with stiff opposition and scurrilous criticisms from the NDC and their CSOs.

The very minute her name was mentioned, Jean Mensa was never given any peace of mind to work. She persisted despite their evil machinations.

Mahama, as predicted by political pundits and the laudable achievements of President Akufo-Addo, lost the 2020 elections.

Dazed by the defeat he suffered in the hands of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, John Mahama thought it ideal to petition the Supreme Court over the results of the elections.

It was crystal clear that Mahama had no evidence or facts to prove that he was shortchanged.

It was also evidently clear that the decision to go to the Supreme Court was not actually to have the results changed but to get at Jean Mensa with the ultimate aim of getting her out of her position as the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

The NDC lost. Instead of conceding that they had no case from the onset, they placed the blame at the doorstep of Jean Mensa.

The party, consequently, indicated that it had severed ties with Jean Mensa and her outfit. They boycotted IPAC meetings since they didn’t find it prudent to work with the Jean Mensa-led EC.

A few days ago, the NDC met and came out with what they claimed as points that would help reform our elections.

They have, strangely, sought to impose a 30-point agenda on Jean Mensa and her deputies. The Jean Mensa they swore Heaven and Earth never to deal or work with is the same person they want to embrace their ideas and incorporate same into their work.

The NDC is consistently inconsistent. They say one thing today but do something completely different tomorrow. If I were in any position to advise the EC’s top guns, I would ask them to throw their document into the trash can.
