Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the Electoral Commission (EC), Mr Eric Kofi Dzakpasu has said reverting back to the old logo was by a unanimous decision from all the various unions and stakeholders working at the electoral body.
He told Kwame Tutu on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5 that the old logo represents the EC better than the controversial one introduced by the immediate past EC chair, Mrs Charlotte Osei.
‘’The old logo at glance shows that our duty as a commission is to manage elections,’’ he said.
He said the staff of the EC wanted to be related to what they do through the logo and the second logo did not represent our vision and mission.
Mr Dzakpasu further stated that Ghanaians were unable to tell what the new logo represented but the old logo was self explanatory.
The Electoral Commission has reverted to it’s originally logo which was changed by the former boss Charlotte Osei.
A memo written by the chairperson Mrs Jean Mensa copied to the deputy chairpersons, said: “From effective December 4, 2018, the original logo of the Electoral Commission which bears the coat of arms and has a ballot box showing the hand casting its vote has been restored.”
“The core values of the Electoral Commission namely integrity, fairness and accountability have from today also been restored.”
In the memo announcing the reversion, the EC boss said: “All communications from the electoral commission must from today be made on the letterhead bearing the original logo of the commission as appears on the face of this letterhead…”
