Madam Jane Mensah, You Owe The People So, Please Pay Them - Johnny Hughes

The Electoral Commission of Ghana is yet to pay its field operatives who worked for the commission during the 2020 general election.

An outspoken journalist and a host of a TV3 morning program, Johnny Hughes has urged the Electoral Commission Chairperson to pay her workers. According to him, Madam Jean Mensah owes the people so, she should pay them as soon as possible.

Johnny Hughes made this statement on the 'New Day' on TV3 this morning, 17th May 2021, when he read a release by the EC assuring the payment of money due to its field operatives for their service during the 2020 election.

According to him, it is unfair to have people work with the EC for more than five months, and she hasn't paid them but keeps on assuring them time and again.

"Madam Jean Mensah, you owe the people, and they keep sending us messages, please pay them. We didn't contract them, you did.

If you have made savings and made extra money, why won't you pay them?

Madam, have you and the staffs of the EC not been paid?" - he said

He added that the people made a lot of sacrifices in other for us to have a credible and peaceful election so, they must be paid.
