The government has appointed James Coffie as the new Managing Director of Ghana Post.
The new Managing Director has pledged to collaborate with the management of the organisation to turn the fortunes of Ghana post around positively.
Last month some workers of Ghana Post demanded the immediate removal of their former Managing Director, Eric Yao and two others who they accused of financial malfeasance.
The aggrieved workers alleged that, the former MD connived with the company’s Head of ICT, Godfred Aboagye, to embezzle funds.
The Public Relation Officer of Ghana Post, Ekow Painstil who confirmed the new appointment to Citi News said, the MD has called for full cooperation from the company’s management and staff and has assured them of his commitment to enhancing the company’s growth.
“As we speak, the handing over is done and so the old MD is not in position. We are all aware there is a new government in power and the new government comes with the responsibility of making sure government agencies are management by their people so it may be coincidental or perhaps the government had its programs already. We cannot say it is due to the pressure the workers gave that gave birth to the appointment of the new managing director.”
