He added that this has been the normal practice Presidents terminate appointment of his appointees without given any reason for it.

 As to whether he paid the ultimate with is job by standing by the truth, he said “it is your conjecture, I cannot confirm that”.

In a letter dated February 4, 2022, to the Company’s Board Chair, the Transport Minister said, “per a letter No OSP127/22/104 dated on January 31, 2022, the President has directed the sacking of Mr. Kwakwa, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah”, and urged him to  kindly take the necessary steps to give effect to the directive.
