FAAJ calls for immediate dismissal of SSNIT Director General over hotels sale fiasco

The Forum for Accountability and Justice (FAAJ) has called for the immediate dismissal of the Director General of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Mr. Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo, over the controversial sale of some SSNIT hotels to the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Mr. Bryan Acheampong.

According to FAAJ, Mr. Osafo-Maafo has disregarded the pending investigation by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and continued to fast-track the sale, despite calls from Organized Labour and civil society groups to halt the process.

“The disrespectful disregard for the demands of the workers of Ghana who the state is holding SSNIT in their trust and the snubbing of CHRAJ’s investigations by Mr. Osafo-Maafo smacks of a predetermined ‘Agyapadee’ like-fashion to capture the state of SSNIT as part of a grand scheme of state-capture at all cost and MUST be resisted by the bold blood and toil of all well-meaning Ghanaians,” FAAJ said in a statement.

FAAJ called on the appointing authorities to dismiss Mr. Osafo-Maafo with immediate effect and stop the sale of the hotels, which they say is against the interest of the people of Ghana.

FAAJ has also threatened to embark on a series of demonstrations to demand accountability and justice if their call is not heeded.
