The Board of Directors of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has denied claims suggesting that the Public Services Commission did not approve the appointment of Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah as the substantive Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GNPC.
In a press statement, the Board stated that those claims are unfounded and should be treated with the utmost contempt.
According to them, the appointment of the CEO has been approved and is fully supported by the Board of Directors of GNPC.
“The Board wishes to state categorically, that the said publication is untrue and the general public is entreated to disregard it and treat it with the contempt it deserves. The CEO with the full support of the Board of Director is focused on effectively steering GNPC to position itself in maximising the utility of the petroleum resources of the country for its citizens,” the statement read.
Mr. Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah was the former Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of technical operations prior to his appointment as the Corporation’s new CEO.
He will be taking over from Kofi Koduah Sarpong, who has served as Chief Executive Officer of GNPC for five years.
