Group Demands Ofosu Ampofo’s Resignation As GPHA Board Chairman

A pro-President John Mahama youth group, JM Ambassadors, are calling for the immediate resignation of the board chairman of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.


The group demonstrated at the main reception hall of GPHA dressed in National Democratic Congress (NDC) branded smokes and holding placards some of which read; “Ofosu Ampofo must go”, Ofosu Ampofo spoils the NDC”, “dissolve GPHA board” among others.

Speaking in an interview shortly after the demonstration, the national coordinator of the group, Alhaji Alhassan Galadima, issued a two-week ultimatum for the license to be issued. He threatened that his group will initiate a court action if their demand is not met by Mr. Ofosu Ampofo.

“The world is watching” he said and he went on to add that “history will judge Ampofo harshly if he denies Odart Stevedoring Ltd the license to operate”.
He also accused Mr. Ofosu Ampofo of betraying the founding documents, principles and fathers of the NDC through his (Ofosu Ampofo) vindictiveness by targeting legitimate business persons in the country.

He said political bullying by Mr. Ofosu Ampofo and his board at GPHA has no place in the search for political success by the NDC.

“It should be made clear to Ampofo that at the end of the day, the citizenry, the nation and the NDC will win” he concluded.

Several efforts made to contact Mr. Ofosu Ampofo for a reaction to the development proved unsuccessful as he never answered all calls placed to his cell phone.
