Former EC Boss Charlotte Osei Turns A TV Host

The immediate past boss of the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) Charlotte Kesson-Smith Osei has taken up a new challenge as a host of a business programme on an Accra-based television station.

The new programme which is dubbed Business Compass will be hosted by Mrs Challotte Osei on GHOne TV.

Speaking at the launch of the new show, the avid lawyer said the programme is dedicated to grooming the next generation of entrepreneurs.

We have been engaging a lot of young entrepreneurs on their career and business issues and as we engaged them we realised more and more young entrepreneurs were passionate about their business and were very ambitious, but there was a knowledge gap,” she said.

“So I have been engaging with them on one on one quietly but eventually somebody at GHOne TV has bullied me into bringing this on TV so I am here [under] duress but it is for a good purpose,“ she jokingly added.

If you have a passion and wants to turn into a profit, you have a side hussle, you want to improve your business this is where you come to and like a GPS we will guide you,” she stated.


The former EC boss, who has a background as a corporate lawyer, will be joined by a group of friends with various expertise as well as a business coach to help young entrepreneurs on the programme which will be aired every week on GHOne TV.

Madam Osei was in June 2018 sacked as EC Chairperson alongside two of her deputies following recommendations from the committee that investigated corruption and misconduct allegations against them after some workers of the EC petitioned the President and Chief Justice to impeach her
