Opuni’s sack letter un-Ghanaian – KB Asante

KB AsanteRetired Ghanaian diplomat, Dr. KB Asante is unhappy about the ultimatum given the Chief Executive of Cocobod, Dr. Stephen Opuni, to vacate his post not later than 5:00 pm Friday, January 13, 2017.

According to him, the tone of the letter is “impolite and un-Ghanaian” which must not be repeated in future.

President Akufo-Addo in a statement directed Dr. Opuni to vacate post pursuant to section 14(1) of the Presidential (Transition) Act, 2012 (Act 845).

The directive is contained in a letter dated January 12, 2017, and signed by the Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo.

But Dr. K.B Asante on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme on Friday said the Akufo-Addo-led government could have sacked Dr. Opuni in a nice way.

He indicated that a person who has spent years in the office should not be booted out like an ordinary person.

As it stands now, Dr. Asante said the manner in which he [Opuni] is being relieved of his post will court hatred for government.

“Maybe I’m old fashioned but I think this should have been done in a nice way but I won’t be surprised 90 percent of the youth will disagree with me,” he added.

In the future, KB Asante urged government to be circumspect in its letters and directives to people whose tenures expired with the erstwhile Mahama-led administration.
