The Director-General of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), Mr Richard Anamoo, was yesterday relieved of his post.
A piece of communiqué from the Presidency signed by the Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo, directed Mr Anamoo to hand over to the President’s nominee for the Transport Ministry, Mr Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, by 5 p.m. yesterday.
It did not assign any reasons for the dismissal.
Mr Anamoo confirmed receiving the communiqué from the Presidency when contacted by the Ahotor fm.
He said, he received a letter asking him to hand over, although there are no assigned reasons. And he has subsequently held meetings with the management and also communicated to the unions the decision to relieve him of his post.
He dismissed the entire allegation made by the media saying after the handing over he was leaving to the state but was refused at the port, mimicking that he wasn’t Yahya Jamel who would leave to exile, for he knows he has no fault, which will cause him to be scared.
