Cocobod Staff Demand Hackman Owusu-Agyemang Dismissal

Workers of the Ghana Cocoa Board (Cocobod) at Kaase Inland Port on Tuesday called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack board chairman Hackman Owusu-Agyemang.

According to the workers, Mr Owusu-Agemang is making work difficult for the Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Boahen Aidoo, and thus hampering the progress of the state firm.

Speaking to journalists at the May Day celebrations in Kumasi, Chairman of the Kaase Inland Port Cocobod staff Richard Akomeah stressed: “We are demanding the removal of Mr Hackman Owusu-Agyemang.”

He claims “Hackman Owusu-Agyemang does not listen” and it has made it difficult for them to know “whether it is the CEO or the board chairman” who is in charge.

“The board chairman is not allowing the CEO to do his work.”

He further complained that their salaries have not been increased in the past three years while other entitled allowances have not been paid.

The workers carrying placard some of which read ‘Remove Board Chair’ and ‘Mr President, who is in Charge of Cocobod?’ accused Mr Owusu-Agyemang of ordering the non-payment of their allowances.
