The evening of December 9, 2016, was the day Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei declared New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo winner of the 2016 presidential elections. The sad and painful truth, however, is that going into the December 7 elections, Mrs Osei was the most vilified and scandalised woman. To crown her sterling efforts and as fate will have it, Mrs Charlotte Osei received the prestigious Woman of Courage award for 2017 from the United States Government. On this day, I salute Mrs Charlotte Osei and commend her for her courage and fortitude. At the end of the day, any political party can either win or lose - no political party is invincible even if you have formed a party militia going by that nomenclature in your ranks.
