The Thirsty Woman project was inspired by the Bible story in John 4 of the Samaritan woman at the well from whom Jesus requested some water. During the encounter he told the woman he could give her “living water” as a gift from God so that she would never thirst again. Jesus used the words “living water” to refer to eternal life, the gift that would satisfy her soul’s desire (thirst). Every woman is thirsty for something, e.g. self-value, joy, peace, success, love, fulfilment etc, and often seeks refreshment from all manner of sources.
My time with Mrs Charlotte Osei on the Board of Directors of Ghana Reinsurance Company Limited can best be described as very memorable.
She was conscientious to duty as a director, her contributions at meetings were very intelligent, insightful and very very knowledgeable. She pays attention to details. As an apostle of good corporate governance, she ensured that the company was compliant in all regards.
Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Ghana, Robert P. Jackson, has described the sacked Chairperson of Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Charlotte Osei, as one of the most competent persons he has ever met despite her dismissal for “incompetence” and procurement breaches.
“I don’t want to get into a debate about whether she was rightly impeached or not, I think that is for the court to decide, but, I have been very troubled about the accusation that she is incompetent, some people have used that word, but Charlotte Osei is one of the most competent people I have ever met.”
