In a Facebook post, Nana Oye Lithur said “I have just read a chauvinistic insulting comment attributed to the Npp Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyepong against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Mrs Charlotte Osei”.

Mr. Agyepong who was speaking on a campaign platform in Asokwa in the Ashanti Region said Charlotte Osei would not have been appointed if she didn’t have sex with some people in higher authority in the NDC.

But Nana Oye Lithur said “Hon. Kennedy Agyepong if you said what has been attributed to you, it is very regrettable and you should apologise to the Chair of the Electoral Commission immediately”.

She further indicated that the current Ghanaian will not allow such comments “personal attacks on women who have committed to serve Ghana in public office”.

She was quick to remind him that he also occupies a public office and should live above reproach for the general public to emulate.

“You are in Public Office and should promote non-discrimination, respect for human dignity and gender equality by your comments and conduct. What you said was very wrong. Do the honourable thing and apologise. Be man enough to apologise. Be True to our Ghanaian values and respect our women”.
