The Electoral Commission (EC) has explained that returning to the use of its original logo, which bears the Coat of Arms and has a ballot box showing the hand casting it’s vote will not cost any significant amount of money.
The Commission on Tuesday December 4, 2018 dumped the controversial multi-coloured logo championed by its immediate past chairperson, Mrs Charlotte Osei.
In a memo dated December 4, 2018 and signed by chairperson, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa, the commission explained that with effect from “today… the original logo..which bears the Coat of Arms and has a ballot box showing the hand casting it’s vote has been restored.”
The memo, which had the subject, “Restoration of Original Logo of the Electoral Commission,” a copy of which has been seen by Graphic Online read: “The core values of the Electoral Commission, namely integrity, Fairness and Accountability have from today also been restored.”
“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. Reams of letterheads are to be picked up from the stores of the Commission,” it said.
“Kindly ensure that the most recent logo is removed from the buildings and properties of the Commission. This will subsequently be replaced.”
“Let the bells of Accountability, Fairness and Integrity ring throughout the Commision. May God bless us all. Thank you,” it concluded.
