According to him, the said reportage is untrue and without any merit as the President has not sacked any CEO.
Speaking in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM, he said it would have been a normal practice for government have issued a statement to that effect.
Mr Oppong Nkrumah cautioned the media to be circumspect in their reportage in this era of fake news.
“Government has not written to any CEO to retire…it’s not true. We need to be cautious in our reportage. There’s no such direction to these CEOs. It is only one person who has been engaged in such matters. These are senior members so it will not be surprising for anyone to come out with such stories but as at this morning; no such order has been given.”
Reports were rife last week that eight Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) have been ordered to leave office by March 2019.
The eight: the CEO of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, Eugene Ofosuhene, Controller and Accountant General, Kofi Jumah, CEO of Ghana Industrial Holding Corporation(GIHOC), Isaac Osei, CEO of Tema Oil Refinery(TOR), Kwame Owusu, CEO of Ghana Maritime Authority, Anthony Nsiah-Asarers, Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Samuel Annor, CEO of the National Health Insurance Authority and Dr K. K Sarpong, CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) have all passed the mandatory retirement age of 60.
