The Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare has issued out a letter informing her brother, Charles Osei Bonsu of his appointment to Chair a juicy Board in what watchers say is the height of nepotism ever felt in the Akufo-Addo government since 2017 from the Presidency after the President himself.
Her brother, Charles Osei Bonsu will now serve the Akufo-Addo government in a capacity as board chairman of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), one of the boards where a lot of activities will be taking place in Akufo-Addo’s second term.
Various sources familiar with the development believe the Chief of Staff is prioritizing nepotism by sidestepping the current Board Chair who has been credited with massive facelift of the Ghana Tourism Authority in Akufo-Addo’s first term that saw the successful Year of Return, Beyond the Return, Afrochella and other major concerts that highlighted Ghana in the NPP first term.
Adelaide Ahwireng the former Board Chairperson has now made way for Frema Opare’s brother to “also eat”, for that is the impression created. Reports said Ms. Ahwireng already served on the Ghana Revenue Authority board and hence should make way for another person to also enjoy from one hence her removal for Mr. Osei Bonsu.
This comes less than a week after the same Chief of Staff was fingered in sale of state properties by NDC MP Rockson Nelson Etse Dafeamekpor.
