According to him, though there is always a need to ensure accountability, it must be done without demonising the Commission.

“We must demand accountability and take the EC on to be sure it is working well in the interest of Ghanaians. But we must not unnecessarily demonise them. Some of the issues can easily be clarified via a simple phone call to them”, he added.
