Appointees of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo have been warned to learn from the mistakes of former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD).
This, according to former Ablekuma Central Member of Parliament (MP), Tetteh Chaie, is a means of avoiding the seeming ‘embarrassment’ that has befalling the once ‘powerful’ CEO of COCOBOD.
“As someone who once served in a public office, I will advise my colleagues who are now selling in public office to be careful and learn from the woes of Dr Opuni…,” he urged on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen.
Former COCBOD CEO, Dr Stephen Kwabena Opuni and one Seidu Agongo together are facing 27 charges, reports Graphiconline, Wednesday.
The case is said to be called on Friday, March 23, 2018 at the High Court.
In February 2017, the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) froze the assets of Dr Opuni as part of investigations into his tenure as CEO of COCOBOD.
Although some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had claimed that the charges are ‘lazy’ and will be flawed at the law courts, Tetteh Chaie believes the agony ought to serve as a lesson for appointees of the current administration.
Some of the appointees come to sit her just to shower praises on the President when they know very well that they are doing wrong things. They should learn from the agonies of Opuni and know very well that the ‘big man’ won’t be invited for prosecution,” he added
