Jean Mensa is Mrs. Akufo-Addo’s niece; she can’t be neutral – Murtala Mohammed

A former Deputy Minister of Trade in the John Mahama's administration, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, has accused President Akufo-Addo of appointing a relative to head the Electoral Commission.

The President on Monday nominated Jean Mensa of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) as the new EC boss pending advice from the Council of State.
