The Presidency has dispelled reports that the former Director-General of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Dr. John Ofori Tenkorang, was discharged due to misconduct.

In a statement on Saturday, April 13, the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, clarified that Dr Ofori-TeOfori-Tenkorang’sal was not due to misconduct or malfeasance.

On Monday, April 8, President Akufo-Addo ended the tenure of Dr. Ofori Tenkorang as the Director-General of SSNIT.

He was directed to transfer his responsibilities to Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo by Monday, April 15.

Before his appointment, Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo had been a staff of SSNIT since 2017 and served as Deputy Director-General in charge of Investment & Development.

His senior brother, Kwadwo Gyamfi Osafo-Maafo was also appointed as the Deputy Director in-charge of Cyber Security at the National Communications Authority (NCA) in 2017.

Besides his work at SSNIT, Kofi Bosompem was one of the lead negotiators for the botched Agyapa Minerals deal.

Despite rumours suggesting that Dr. Tenkorang’s dismissal was due to misconduct, the Presidency claims that Dr Ofori-TeOfori-Tenkorang’s dismissal is part of the ongoing restructuring initiated by President Akufo-Addo.

The Presidency further stated that President Akufo-Addo is pleased with Dr Ofori-TeOfori-Tenkorang’sance, as the institution experienced significant transformation under his leadership.
