ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo fired the head of the country’s electoral commission on Thursday for “misbehaviour and incompetence,” Information Minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid said.

The removal of Charlotte Osei and her two deputies were based on a recommendation by a special committee set up by the Chief Justice to investigate complaints made against them, Abdul-Hamid said in a statement.
