President Nana Akufo-Addo has nominated John Kwaning Mbroh as the Deputy Managing Director in-charge-of Finance and Administration for the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL).
A letter from the Presidency urged the GWCL Board Chairman to “take steps to have the Board of Directors regularize the appointment.
The GWCL was recently the subject of some tensions over the supposed proposal to appoint a third Deputy Managing Director in charge of Special Projects.
The Public Utilities Workers Union (PUWU) argued that the appointment was needless and a duplication of roles.
PUWU said the utility company should instead be taking strategic steps to “reduce the bureaucratic layers at the top.”
The company currently has a Managing Director, a Deputy Managing Director for Operations, a Deputy Managing Director for Finance and Administration, a Chief Manager for Operations, a Chief Manager for Water Resources a Chief Manager for Projects, Planning & Development and Manager for Projects.
But the Board Chairman of the Company, Alexander Afenyo Markin, on Eyewitness News on Citi FM, offered tangible reasons why the appointment was necessary, and does not constitute a duplication of roles.
