The Electoral Commission (EC) has dispelled rumours that the Chairperson of the Commission has tested positive for COVID–19.
A statement issued by the EC on Thursday, July 9, said a report by some news portals were false and should be disregarded.
The statement said, Mrs Jean Mensa “is well and at post.”
“Our attention has been drawn to a malicious story circulating on a news portal which calls itself HardtruthGH.Com claiming that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Mrs. Jean Mensa has contracted the COVID -19 Corona Virus.
“The Commission wishes to state categorically that this is an outright lie and a figment of the author’s warped imagination. The Commission wishes to state that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission is well and at post. She has not tested positive for the Coronavirus,” the statement said.
It therefore urged the public “to disregard the lies and fabrications and treat the story with the contempt it deserves.”
