In a statement issued today, Board Chairman, William Asumaning noted that the president did not follow due procedures in his new appointment of the GOIL CEO.
He is convinced the president did not follow due procedures in his new appointment of the GOIL CEO, and stressed that GOIL is a public listed company on the Ghana Stock Exchange with its own regulations which makes it impossible for the president to appoint or remove a CEO without observing the necessary procedures.
The statement is in reaction to media reports on Friday that President Nana Akufo-Addo has appointed Mr. Osei Prempeh as new GOIL CEO.
But Mr Asumaning stated emphatically that GOIL “is not aware of the observance of such processes“.

STATEMENT BY GOIL BOARD ON APPOINTMENT OF A NEW CEO
Information available to the GOIL Board per a publication on Ghanaweb on Friday, the 24th of February, 2017 captioned “Nana Addo Picks New Heads for Forestry Commission, Ghana Health Service and GOIL” indicates that the new CEO appointed for GOIL is one Mr. Osei Prempeh.
The Board would like to draw the attention of the SHAREHOLDERS and the public to the fact that GOIL is a public listed company on the Ghana Stock Exchange with its own Regulations. The Regulations state the process through which a CEO can be appointed or removed.
The Board would like to state emphatically that it is not aware of the observance of such processes as stated in the regulations leading to the appointment of any CEO and that we as a Board have not made any such appointment.
