H.E President Nana Akufo-Addo was in the swearing-in mode yesterday.
After holding an investiture ceremony to induct the first female Chancellor of the University of Ghana into office, H.E Akufo-Addo later went on to make formal appointments of the seven Supreme Court judges and four new commissioners of the Electoral Commission.
Coming after the dismissal of Charlotte Osei as the Chairperson of the EC, President Akufo-Addo nominated Jean Mensa, the Executive Secretary of the Institute of Economic Affairs.
Obviously, this was hugely political with opposition NDC kicking against the move, however, the as the country was fixated on the banking crisis, President Akufo-Addo went ahead to swear Jean Mensa and three others into office.
She is a lawyer by profession and a leader of thought in Ghana on governance and democratic issues.
Mrs. Mensa has carved a niche for herself in the field of policy research and advocacy as well as in the development of policy alternatives including the Presidential Transition Act of 2012; the Revised 1992 Constitution of Ghana (draft); the Political Parties Funding Bill and the Revised Political Parties Bill, the IEA website says about its Executive Director who now has to resign.
Mrs. Mensa was a tireless advocate for the review of Ghana’s 1992 Constitution and served as a Commissioner of the Government-established Constitution Review Commission.
